In a publishing world where most authors are expected to do all of their own marketing without any help from their publisher, it's rare for a new, non-celebrity author to get a six-figure marketing campaign and 100,000-copy first printing. Harlequin did just that for the book, Let's Get Lost. This book must be good. Real good. And you get a chance to win a copy along with a slew of other goodies!

Let's Get Lost by Adi Alsaid

A book for travel lovers

Let's Get Lost is a book for travel lovers. The story focuses on a road trip taken by protagonist Leila, a free-spirited teen who will touch the lives of four teens during her journey. Told in the voices of five teenagers, the main character's motivation and voice are not revealed until the end of the book, which weaves a sense of mystery throughout the young adult novel.

According to a Publisher's Weekly article about Let's Get Lost, Annie Stone, editor of Harlequin Teen said,  “Adi’s writing just sang from the very start, and I knew immediately that this is a book I wanted to work on.” She continued, “I found it intriguing that Leila’s perspective only surfaces at the end, and first we meet the people she’s meeting, and learn their coming-of-age stories, which creates an element of suspense. Adi was able to humanize all the characters and make their stories fit together perfectly.”

It's about the journey, not the destination

About Let's Get Lost, Glitter Magazine said, “Mesmerizing. A story of love, loss, ambition, and finding the true meaning of life. Everything in Leila’s path is by design, reminding the reader to truly seize the day.” As a fan of literary travel who is always seeking to live in the present moment and focus on what truly matters, I look forward to reading this novel (and writing a full review of it for Travel Mamas)!

Philip Siegel, author of The Break-Up Artist, said, “With an inventive structure, memorable characters, and soulful writing, Let's Get Lost reminds us that the road of life is full of unexpected detours, but it’s not about where you’re coming from or where you’re headed. It’s about the journey. Leila is a one-of-a-kind character you won’t soon forget.”

The author

Adi Alsaid (age 27) was raised in Mexico City by his Israeli parents. He attended college at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. While in class, he mostly read fiction and continuously failed to fill out crossword puzzles, so it's no surprise that after graduating he packed up his car and escaped to the California coastline to become a writer. He's now back in his hometown, where he writes, coaches high school and elementary basketball, and has perfected the art of making every dish he eats or cooks as spicy as possible. In addition to Mexico, he has lived in Tel Aviv, Las Vegas and Monterey, California. A tingly feeling in his feet tells him that more places will eventually be added to the list.

Let's Get Lost is Alsaid's first published novel. The Publisher's Weekly article revealed that Alsaid did not expect to become a published author so early in his career. He said, “I never thought it would happen this quickly, since like most people who want to pursue a dream, I assumed I’d have to first have a day job,' he said. “But since I had an international student visa, it was hard to find work in the business world [in the U.S.], so I ended up doing it backwards, and I’m able to pursue my dream now.” Read more about the author and Let's Get Lost on his blog.
