My review (published at Read, Run, Ramble):
Thank you Little, Brown Books for Young Readers via Netgalley for providing me with a copy of this book!
This book was perfect for the days I chose to read it. It is light, fun, and sweet. Hadley’s parents are divorced and she’s headed across the world to her father’s wedding. She meets Oliver in the airport after missing her flight by four minutes. Oliver is witty, caring, and British causing Hadley to forget all about her worries and stresses as she and Oliver get to know each other over a very long flight over seas.
Once at their destination, they are separated and Hadley is sure she’ll never see Oliver again, but things at her father’s wedding don’t go exactly as she’s expected. Not only does she find a way to possibly see Oliver again, but she also starts to realize that maybe her father and his new wife do have a place in her life.
A coming of age tale that will bring readers nostalgia, humor, and all-too-close-to-home understanding.
