Let's Get Lost by Adi Alsaid
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Thank you to Harlequin Teen and NetGalley for the ARC of Let's Get Lost by Adi Alsaid.
"Let's Get Lost," by Adi Alsaid, is a completely enjoyable read. I have recommended this for our Y/A section.
Each chapter of the book is dedicated to a new chapter in the protagonist, Leila's journey to see the Northern Lights.
The first person she meets on her trek is Hudson, a mechanic in his dad's shop, and a senior in high school. He fixes her car, and ends up taking her on a tour that ruins plans that his parents had for him for years. He blames Leila, and she continues on her journey, from the Southern U.S., up into Canada, and back into The States.
There was a connection between Hudson and Leila, but when she leaves, she leaves alone. Luckily, she doesn't stay alone long, because there are other young people she meets along the way that she befriends, and in some ways they become her teachers.
She meets several other people along the way, each person adding dimension to the scope of this road trip. Anther title could be, "Pay It Forward".
Leila, the protagonist is an amazing, fearless and honest young woman who learns valuable things on her adventure. She learns that what is meant to be happens, and it isn't always what a person wants.
The content is suitable for most Y/A readers, it is mostly positive, and a good adventure.
