Let’s Get Lost

“Five strangers. Countless adventures. One epic way to get lost.”

LetsGetLost-AdiAlsaidLeila is on a journey to see the Northern Lights in Alaska when she comes across four strangers. Their lives collide as Hudson, Bree, Elliot, and Sonia find friendship and empathy with one another as they join mysterious Leila on her cross-country trip. As the miles stretch behind them, Leila helps them understand that life is a journey which doesn’t come with a map and that perhaps the best way to find themselves is to first get lost.

Uniquely narrated by each character in five parts and beautifully put together, Let’s Get Lost is a captivating and fun read about loss, hope, love and self-discovery.

Hudson is a mechanic who hopes to become a doctor, that is, if he can get into a good college. Bree lives on the edge and gets a rush when committing petty crimes. Elliot’s in love with his best friend… unfortunately, she doesn’t feel the same way. Sonia’s husband Sam is dead but she finds it difficult to move on despite meeting a great guy. And then there’s Leila. Mysterious, enigmatic, free-spirited and kind, Leila brings them all together as they each learn to deal with their personal issues while experiencing an amazing adventure.
