When I ordered this book online, I was expecting a thick fat book which I could read for few days and finish. But I was a little disappointed when it appeared that it was not 'Fat' like I wanted. But all the more, the synopsis made me want to read this book ASAP. I also just loved the Book jacket! I know I know, we should not judge a book by its cover, but this book can be judged by its cover as it is just as pretty in the inside as well as out.
The book starts off as Hadley, the 17 year old reaches the Airport only to realize that she has missed her Flight by just 4 minutes. She is the protagonist and the book emphasis the importance of minutes and even seconds in our lives. She is supposed to go to London for her Father's marriage and it is with great reluctance from her Mother's side that she decides to meet the woman who her Father has decided to get married to.
But little does she know that Fate has other things in store for her. It is at the Airport that she meets the cute Oliver. Immediately they start talking when Oliver helps her at the Airport and she can't hide her delight when she finds that have got almost adjacent seats. Hers is A & his C. As luck could have it, they end up travelling 7 hours side by side and Hadley finds herself revealing more about herself to this stranger she met just few hours back.
The book spans over 24 hours & it just this 1 day that changes Hadley's life. The imperfect relationship with her Father, her frustrations, fears & hopes are shown very well & though it is a young adult romance, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this one. Do give this one a read if you are a true romantic at heart as it has all the ingredients for a sweet story. This is one which makes us see a fairy tale even in our daily lives.
