- Opening line: "There are so many ways it could have all turned out differently."
- Reason I picked up the book: I've been wanting to read this book since 2012, when it hit stores, and NetGalley emailed me the other day saying it was re-releasing it for Valentine's Day, and the first 500 readers would get it. Guess how fast I clicked that link ...
- Favorite paragraph:
Across the ocean, her father is making one last toast, and the white-gloved hotel staff is polishing the silverware for tomorrow night's celebration. Behind her, the boy with a ticket for seat 18C on the next flight to London is eating a powdered doughnut, oblivious to the dusting of white on his blue shirt.
Hadley closes her eyes, just for a moment, and when she opens them again, the plane is gone.
Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything?
- Recommended for: fans of romances, YA (Young Adult) books, international travel books.
- Something to know: It seems like most of Jennifer E. Smith's books are like this - where a girl meets a boy in an unusual situation, spends a little time together, and then can't stop thinking about each other. Her newest book, The Geography of You and Me, follows this pattern as well.
- What I would have changed: The ending was way too abrupt! I wanted to know more. I would love to read a sequel with these two characters.
- Overall rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars.
