Book Blitz and Giveaway: Let's Get Lost by Adi Alsaid

Welcome to the Let's Get Lost book blitz! I haven't read this book, but I've heard wonderful things about it. Let's get to the post, shall we? :)

(I can't seem to figure out how to put the excerpt into the post. It's on a PDF file, which is super annoying. So just bear with me.)

Let's Get Lost by Adi Alsaid
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Publication Date: July 29, 2014

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.

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.

  1. Hmmmm, I'm sort of curious about this one, but you know me and contemporaries... I'll wait and see some reviews before adding it to any list!

  2. I'm doing the Blitz too (on Friday) and I started reading the book yesterday (so far, so good) because two bloggers have already said it is the BEST book they've ever read :)

  3. Love road trip books! My dream place to travel is Paris and also a bunch of great islands with great beaches! I've been to Bermuda and St. Thomas so far but saw a list of the greatest beaches with the clearest water and would like to visit them all!

  4. I have always wanted to go to Australia, seems like an interesting place to visit.
