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.

 

Let’s Get Lost was a really inspirational book. This is the type of book that you read when you want to escape reality for a bit. It's the perfect summer read. I devoured this book in matter of hours. I was so captivated by each and everyone of the stories and characters. I love how Leila is far from perfect and how all of the stories are very close to real life. While reading this book I learned a to not take every day for granted and to appreciate everything that life offers. I am truly inspired to take a roadtrip around the country and seize the Tuesday!

This book is divided in 5 different parts; Hudson, Bree, Elliot, Sonia and Leila. All the characters have their own flaws and personal conflicts. They all made excuses for the issues and situations that they were going thru. They all had one thing in common, Leila. Leila appeared in their lives when they most need it someone or when they were least expecting her. She help every single one of them to see a different side of life but no one knew the reality behind Leila’s life. 

This book made me laugh and swoon several times. It made me cry and put my hand in my heart, it made me think about my family and the little things that we take for granted everyday. I found myself rooting for Leila and every single friend she made along the way. I loved the ending of all the individual stories and most of all I adore the ending of Leila’s story. After all the help she offered it was only fair that she get her HEA. 

Overall this was a really nice read, fast and fun. The pacing was just right and I like how Alsaid nicely wrapped up every story. This is the perfect summer read if you are looking for something light and realistic. I am truly inspired with this book and like I said before I learned to seize everyday and make the most of them.
