Find it on Goodreads: Let's Get Lost
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.
Intriguing premise with a surprise twist at the end, this book definitely lived up to the hype. I love travel/road trip books, as well as mysterious main characters, so this book was a great fit for me, as the story takes us on Leila's journey to see the Northern Lights, finding friends and adventure along the way. There's one part where Leila and Sonia are traveling to Hope, BC through all of these places that I actually know and I could picture their route so perfectly it was a bit unnerving. There's nothing like reading a book set in places you live or have been. I loved all of the character studies this book contained, with these lost people all finding this one lost girl. The final twist was surprising and a bit heartbreaking, but I loved where the story went and would definitely recommend this book to anyone.
