Let's Get Lost by Adi Alsaid

Synopsis (from Goodreads)

Pages: 352
Publisher: Mira Ink 
Released: 1st of August 2014

One girl could change four lives forever…

Mysterious Leila, who is on the road trip of a lifetime, has a habit of crashing into people’s worlds at the moment they need someone the most.

There’s Hudson, who is willing to throw away his dreams for love. And Bree, a runaway who seizes every Tuesday—and a few stolen goods along the way. Elliot who believes in happy endings…until his own goes off-script. And Sonia who worries that she’s lost her ability to love.

Hudson, Bree, Elliot and Sonia find a friend in Leila. But Leila’s trip could help her discover something bigger — that sometimes, the only way to find what you’re looking for is to get lost along the way…

What I Have To Say

This is everything that you look for in a good road trip story. Epic adventures, quirky characters and spontaneity at every turn. I think that's what's great about road trip stories. Anything can happen. 

I loved the different narrators. I liked Leila a lot, but I do think that the story (or stories) wouldn't have been half as good if it hadn't changed voice every few chapters. 

Elliot was my favourite. He had that sassy humour that I love from characters, even if his story was probably one of my least favourite. Bree was another voice I really liked. She felt very real in her avoidance of real life and desire to keep moving. 

This is definitely a good read for the summer.

Seize the Tuesday!
