THIS REVIEW IS MOSTLY SPOILER FREE. 
review
What are the odds of meeting a cute, witty, British *college* boy on your next flight?Oliver is the guy to ask because that may or may not be his major.
This book really nails the subject of family. Hadley refuses to accept her father’s decision to remarry and Oliver isn’t on good terms with his.
Oliver will make your heart melt and you’ll just be laughing out loud. Oliver is really the comic relief of this book. The topic of family issues may hit you in the feels but Oliver will fix it!
Throughout just a short book, the personalities of the characters are defined and we can easily get to know them. The dialogue was very well written, I enjoyed the conversations with the people around them and just between both of them. The reader gets to know the characters simply by their conversations.
The one aspect of this book I really enjoyed was the fact that Hadley is a bookworm. Her father would read her famous classics when she was very young. I love when books are incorporated into the story or the character’s life.
I had somewhat high expectations for this book because I did not enjoy Jennifer’s book, The Geography of You and Me. This book changed my feelings about her as a writer. This book is her debut novel and I loved it! I didn’t rate it a full 5 stars because I just didn’t feel it was a five star book because of the way it ended. I usually don’t rate books on their ending if I enjoyed the rest of the book, but for this I did.
