I hope this makes the Teens' Top Ten

Let's Get Lost

Let’s Get Lost

By: Adi Alsaid

Genre: YA Realistic fiction

Pages: 338

Published: 2014

Read: August

5 out of 5

I hope this book is chosen by the teens as one of the TOP TEN of 2014. I loved it and was able to reminisce about my long ago teen years. At first, I was skeptical because to me it read as short stories; just with one consistent character. However, I was quickly absorbed into the lives of the characters and the story. Leila is driving cross country to see the Northern Lights and tells about the four teens she meets along the way. Each teen has their own unique drama and through their time spent with Leila they are able to learn a little about themselves. I liked that each teen’s issue was not magical solved and wrapped up in a bow, rather Leila and their adventures together helped them start walking down the correct road. I believe teens and adults will enjoy this book because it shows that if you talk to peers it helps; but even more so because the teens’ crazy and wild adventures are carefree and sometimes reckless  the reader can live the adventure with Leila, Hudson, Bree, Elliot, and Sonia even if they would never attempt them themselves.
