Blurb:

One girl could change four lives forever…
 

Mysterious Leila, who is on the road trip of a lifetime, has a habit of crashing into people’s worlds at the moment they need someone the most.

 

There’s Hudson, who is willing to throw away his dreams for love.

And Bree, a runaway who seizes every Tuesday—and a few stolen goods along the way. 

Elliot who believes in happy endings…until his own goes off-script.

And Sonia who worries that she’s lost her ability to love.

 

Hudson, Bree, Elliot and Sonia find a friend in Leila. But Leila’s trip could help her discover something bigger — that sometimes, the only way to find what you’re looking for is to get lost along the way…

Review:

 I have to admit after a great start for me let's get lost did just that it got lost. I found it to be a bit strange, and I know it wasn't supposed to be a seamless story, but I didn't understand why it needed to be told from five people's perspective at all. I've been sitting here for going onto forty-five minutes now trying to understand and also try to write a review. To be completely honest with you I'm finding that quite difficult because I just didn't get it. I can't go into detail either because then, well, that would be a big fat massive spoiler and that's not acceptable at all. To me it would have been so much better to have just been with Leila on her journey. That would have been an emotional ride and I would have actually really loved the book. I do have to give credit for Leila's character though, she came across as strong, independant and a kind loving teenager. She made the book for me.
