Review - Let's Get Lost by Adi Alsaid

Author: Adi Alsaid
Pages: 304
Release date: 29th July 2014
Publisher: Harlequin TEEN

Blurb from Goodreads:

Five strangers. Countless adventures. One epic way to get lost.
Four teens across the country have only one thing in common: a girl named LEILA. She crashes into their lives in her absurdly red car at the moment they need someone the most.

There's HUDSON, a small-town mechanic who is willing to throw away his dreams for true love. And BREE, a runaway who seizes every Tuesday—and a few stolen goods along the way. ELLIOT believes in happy endings…until his own life goes off-script. And SONIA worries that when she lost her boyfriend, she also lost the ability to love.

Hudson, Bree, Elliot and Sonia find a friend in Leila. And when Leila leaves them, their lives are forever changed. But it is during Leila's own 4,268-mile journey that she discovers the most important truth— sometimes, what you need most is right where you started. And maybe the only way to find what you're looking for is to get lost along the way.

My Review:

4/5 stars

Let’s Get Lost tells the tale of four young people whose lives are changed by the appearance of Leila, a young girl with a red car who is on her way north to see the Northern Lights.

On her way Leila meets Hudson, a mechanic from a small town who plans to become a doctor, Bree a runaway from a broken home, Elliot who wants a happy ending worthy of a film and Sonia who still loves her dead boyfriend and feels guilt that she now loves someone else so soon after his death.

I really enjoyed this book and read it in one sitting. 
As I read it felt like I was being swept along with Leila on her road trip and I liked the different people and their stories that she helped on her way. 
I also liked that we learned more about Leila and thought the ending was perfect.

This is a heart warming and feel good story that I would definitely recommend.
