has in no way changed my opinion of the book. The review below is my
open and honest opinion.***
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.
series binge-read. I needed something light. Something fun. Something fluffy.
Because let’s be honest. If I had jumped into another paranormal or fantasy it
would have paled in comparison. So Let’s Get Lost was the perfect
recovery book. This book was good! Everything that I needed it to be and more.
across the country, but in a unique twist, it’s told from the POV’s of the
people she meets along the way. And she meets some interesting people. Leila
has a way of making people face their problems. I would call it her “superpower”.
She doesn’t really try to. She just does.
the way and in turn, getting to know Leila. You can tell during the whole
book that she’s hiding something so you’re flipping the pages faster and faster
to discover what her secret is. But at the same time, I also wanted to slow
down and enjoy the story for what it is. And that is a leisurely road
Bree. She’s a little wild and reckless (so is Leila when she’s around her), but
she was so full of life and energy. I would never be able to do the things that
Bree did, and even though her decisions weren’t good, I was still somewhat awed
by this girl.
the book where we finally get to read from her POV. Their little girl was so
adorable. Kids have a way of making you face the truth, just as Leila had a way
of making all the other people face the music. And this little girl finally
makes Leila come to grips with what has happened to her.
how that all came together throughout the book. I thought it was fast and then
this one thing happened that I was not a fan of and honestly felt a bit creepy
to me. I know, vague, but I don’t want to give anything way. Anybody else who’s
read this think that?
a unique road trip book with a fun and fluffy plot. It never got too serious,
although there is depth to the story. Great summer/beach read! Happy reading
