Let's Get Lost by Adi Alsaid

Let's Get Lost

Looking for a book to read? I highly recommend YA novel Let's Get Lost by Adi Alsaid.

I'm admittedly a lazy reader. If I am not sucked into the story right off the bat I lose interest pretty quickly. I have so many books I've never finished. It took me three months to get through Gone Girl. My Kindle contains stories that are still bookmarked on Chapter 1. It's a real problem. So the fact that I was hooked on Let's Get Lost as soon as I started speaks volumes.

Here's a little overview, provided by publisher, Harlequin Teen:
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...
The mystery of the main character, Leila, intrigued me. I couldn't tell what she was up to, or if she was good or bad. It's was all a mystery, except for the fact she was hiding something. The book is split up into four sections, one for each of the other characters Leila encounters, and as the story progresses we get a few more hints along the way. With each clue her character unfolds until we get to see who Leila is.

By the end of the book (which I can totally see being adapted to film) it all felt together so perfectly in a way I never saw coming.

Let's Get Lost just came out in August and already has a Goodreads rating of 3.8 out of 5 and Barnes & Noble puts it at a 4.5 out of 5. And this is Adi Alsaid's first book - really impressive. He's got a great career ahead!

Be sure to pick up your copy, available pretty much anywhere you'd buy books!
