Review: Let's Get Lost by Adi Alsaid

Title: Let's Get Lost
Author:  Adi Alsaid
Publisher: Harlequin UK
Rating: 4.5/5 Stars

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…

Source: I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book whatsoever; it's my true opinion only.  

I received an e-book of this from Harlequin via Edelweiss. Thank you to the publisher for giving me a chance to read and review this.

When I first went into this, I thought it was going to be like Amy and Roger's Epic Detour where they go on a trip together. Let's Get Lost is far from that. It's a story about a girl trying to find herself and remember her life before an accident. She also learning how to move on from that.

Leila goes on a road trip to see the Northern Lights. Along the way she bumps into people and helps them; especially when they all really need someone.

Romance and friendship definitely have major roles in this story. This book will have you smiling throughout.

At first I did have problems getting into the book as I wasn't warming towards the character Hudson, but he eventually grew on me.

Leila had a magical way of changing people and helping them out. She is definitely one of those people that you adore ad admire. She is very outgoing and determined.

All of the side characters: Hudson, Bree, Elliot and Sonia all have their own separate stories to tell. I loved meeting them all and learning about them.

Most of all though, Leila's story was the most important and heart-warming of all.

Adi Alsaid did a perfect job of weaving all of these stories together with their fantastic writing skills. I can't wait to read another novel from this author.

The book is sectioned out well; this way you can tell which character is next. Also, I like the postcards at the end of every character's story.

The ending to Let's Get Lost was perfect. It definitely plastered a smile on my face. And that''s why I gave it 4.5 stars; it deserves that score.

If you like contemporaries and road trip novels, then you need to give this one a read! =D
