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.
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. - via GoodReads
Ah! I struggled so much with Let’s Get Lost by Adi Alsaid! It took me nine days to get through it all. That’s a long time for me anymore. I wasn’t really motivated to read it either. I was so mad at the book community for awhile. I remember this book being hyped and I couldn’t understand why there was so much love for this book.
Lelia is a fun character to read about. She is fun and kind. Leila is the type of girl you want to be friends with. She makes being a decent human being look effortless. The people she meets along her trip were lucky she came along when she did.
Speaking of the people Leila meets along the way, they were a lot of fun to meet too. Herein lays the problem. It seems that the first person she meets doesn’t end well. Everyone after that first one gets a happy ending. I think that’s what really slowed me down with this book. All I could think of was Hudson. What happened with Hudson? How did things go for him?
Let’s Get Lost really cemented itself for me in Leila’s section. It was like everything fell into place and made sense. I really don’t want to go into too much detail here because I think if you haven’t read the book, Leila’s ending needs to be spoiler free. Overall though the ending is what saved Let’s Get Lost for me. It was an enjoyable read but I probably wouldn’t read it again.
