Teaser Tuesday: Let’s Get Lost by Adi Alsaid

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To play along just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Let’s Get Lost by Adi Alsaid.

Let’s Get Lost – Harlequin Teen

With his eyes closed, Hudson could reduce the world to a single engine and nothing more; a world where he could not only name every little part but knew what it was for, how it worked, how to fix it.
— Chapter 1.1

It was not in the script—in any version of the script Elliot had envisioned for tonight— for her to give him one of those smiles that he’d fallen in love with in the first place, and then walk away. But that’s exactly what she did.
— Chapter 3.1

Have you ever had an incident of strange connections? That for example the friend of a friend’s cousin turned out to be one of your colleagues? This book is not quite like that, but the interconnectedness of the individual stories hinges on one character who maddeningly enough is not your focal character. So this is the person you should know the most about simple because you read about her more than about the others. However, more or less the opposite is the case and you get to piece together most of her story through the observation of others. A very interesting concept which is a little challenging if you’re an instant knowledge type of reader. Very worth it though in my opinion as I like to imagine how other characters perceive the actual person narrating the story.

Let me know about strange connections you discovered and share your teaser picks in the comments.

Sounds like an interesting approach to a story. Your Teasers made me curious.

I really like the first teaser. I like the idea of your world being reduced down to something you completely understand and can operate control over. Thanks for sharing!

I agree with you Kerry! That would be amazing to have that control.

I like the second quote. The smile may be misleading and he's not sure of the relationship between the two of them since she smiled that smile but walked away. It makes me imagine the scene and play out the scenario.

Thanks for the quote. Here's mine: The Mockingbird Next Door.
