LET’S GET LOST by Adi Alsaid was just released! Be sure to check it out!

unnamedFive 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. Continue reading

Adi Alsaid’s Top 5 YA Authors

• John Green
• Leslye Walton
• David Levithan
• Corey Whaley
• E. Lockhart

“In the few years since I began reading young adult novels, I’ve taken a shotgun-blast approach when

choosing what to read next. Rather than focusing on one author’s work to fully explore, I’ve tried to get

my hands on as many different ones as possible. So, though I’ve only read one or two books by some

of these authors, they wrote the books I most enjoyed within the genre, and am looking forward to

reading more and more of their work. Three of them I only discovered this year while traveling to book

conferences, and all three of their books (Whaley’s Noggin, Lockhart’s We Were Liars, and fellow debut

author Leslye Walton’s The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender) are among my favorite

books overall that I’ve read in the past couple years.”
