Kort biografi
"Adi Alsaid was born and raised in Mexico City, where he now lives after spending time in Israel, Las Vegas and California. His debut, *Let's Get Lost*, was nominated for YALSA's 2015 Best Fiction for Young Adults list." (book jacket, "Never Always Sometimes")



Ever read an anthology where each story caused an impact you felt in your chest? Reading Come on in was like that. Honestly, I'm not sure if I am going to be able to adequately write how this book made me feel, I am afraid that whatever I saw won't do this book justice, but I am going to try.

The first adjective that I would use is powerful. The pen is supposedly mightier than the sword but there are not a lot of books that can display this. However, the stories in this book have the ability to showcase just that. The second adjective would be magical. Each story was written in a way where I felt I was transported there right along beside the characters.

I know I will never truly be able to know what any of these characters really feel considering I was born in the U.S. but my mother wasn't and it really puts into perspective of what she must have felt and gone through. it makes me feel closer to her. One of the things this anthology does, is give you information about each author after the story and since I absolutely loved each one (which is a rarity for me), so I now have a list of authors to add to my must read list.

Overall, this book is a must read to me.

*A Thank you to Netgalley for allowing me to read this for an honest and unbiased review*

Thank you to Harlequin Teen and NetGalley for the ARC of [b:Let's Get Lost|1085496|Let's Get Lost|Sarra Manning||695954] by [a:Adi Alsaid|4505164|Adi Alsaid|].

"Let's Get Lost," by Adi Alsaid, is a completely enjoyable read. I have recommended this for our Y/A section.

Each chapter of the book is dedicated to a new chapter in the protagonist, Leila's journey to see the Northern Lights.

The first person she meets on her trek is Hudson, a mechanic in his dad's shop, and a senior in high school. He fixes her car, and ends up taking her on a tour that ruins plans that his parents had for him for years. He blames Leila, and she continues on her journey, from the Southern U.S., up into Canada, and back into The States.

There was a connection between Hudson and Leila, but when she leaves, she leaves alone. Luckily, she doesn't stay alone long, because there are other young people she meets along the way that she befriends, and in some ways they become her teachers.

She meets several other people along the way, each person adding dimension to the scope of this road trip. Anther title could be, "Pay It Forward".

Leila, the protagonist is an amazing, fearless and honest young woman who learns valuable things on her adventure. She learns that what is meant to happen, isn't always what a person thinks they want.

The content is suitable for most Y/A readers, it is mostly positive, and a good adventure.

2.5 stars. This teen "road trip" book is romantic in the hopeful, unrealistic dreamer kind of way. There isn't much road or trip in the story, just several short stories strung together by one of the characters who is in the midsts of driving to Alaska by herself. I may have really enjoyed it when I was a teen. As it is, I'm way too much of a mom for this book. There was so much ridiculous behavior with very little consequence. I don't need a book to be super-realistic, but this one had me rolling my eyes too often. The characters weren't very deeply developed, either.… (mer)
