Let's Get Lost
by Ali Alsaid

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.

I found out about this one at the end of last week, and I've been so excited about it ever since. I stumbled on this video on Mira Ink's Facebook page, and I was immediately intrigued, so I looked it up on Goodreads, and frankly, I think it sounds awesome. Ali seems so down to Earth, and I felt really inspired watching his video, and I'd love to be able to see the world through his eyes in this story.
Mira Ink are releasing this in the UK later this year, and it's being released in the US by Harlequin Teen in July. Sounds like a great summer read, and I'm looking forward to it!

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)

Great pick! It sounds really good!

P.S. I can't seem to access the Linky so I'll be posting my WW here! :)
