Let's Get Lost
Release Date: 07/29/ 14
Harlequin Teen</ o:p>

Summary from Goodreads:

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.

Excerpt: 
After half an hour of aimless driving, the air hadn’t

cooled at all. The faux-velvet seats had become

uncomfortably sticky, so they decided to park and

stretch their legs for a bit. Seeking solace from the

heat, they chose a spot under the shade of a tree

with long, low-hanging branches that reached out

over the street like protective arms.

Across the road from them, surrounded by a ten-
foot white wall that stretched farther than Bree

could see, was the Kansas City Country Club. The

landscaping outside was immaculate, everything

bright green and evenly trimmed, bushes rounded

into perfect spheres. Every now and then a car

would drive up to the lone valet attendant. The

people getting out of the cars were dressed up, the

men in expensive looking suits, cuff links, and

pocket squares, the women decked out in jewelry

and brand-name handbags. A big, golden Mercedes

came up the driveway. A car like that had never

once stopped to pick Bree up when she was

hitchhiking.


About the Author
Adi Alsaid was born and raised in Mexico City, then studied at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. While in class, he mostly read fiction and continuously failed to fill out crossword puzzles, so it's no surprise that after graduating, he did not go into business world but rather packed up his apartment into his car and escaped to the California coastline to become a writer. He's now back in his hometown, where he writes, coaches high school and elementary basketball, and has perfected the art of making every dish he eats or cooks as spicy as possible. In addition to Mexico, he's lived in Tel Aviv, Las Vegas, and Monterey, California. A tingly feeling in his feet tells him more places will eventually be added to the list. Let's Get Lost is his YA debut.
