The thing is she doesn't want to go, she haven't seen her dad for over a year and she never even met her future stepmother.Then, while waiting for the next flight, she met Oliver. Then, they realize they will both sit in the same row in the plane.That meant they talked to each other for 7 hours, truly they confide in each other and told things they never told anyone before.At arrival they lose track of each other at the airport, will they meet again?But the thing about this book, it's not only the story of boy meets girl, it's also the story of family, hurt, disappointment and above all second chances.Hadley feels bitter and hurt about her dad, he left home for one semester in London, and never returned. She feels betrayed and even worse abandoned by the person she loved the most.She thought he just decided to erase his previous life (including her) and start fresh, in another country, in another house, with another wife.She will then realize that all she ever wanted was for her father to be happy and it never meant to be a life without her. No relationship must be taken for granted but instead nurtured.
