Let's Get Lost

Let's Get Lost by Sarra Manning


Isabel is the girl everyone is afraid of. She will bully you and ruin you. Even her "friends" are scared of her. She likes to be in charge. Her father blames her for everything, her brother just wants to annoy her, and her teachers can't get through to her. She loves the power. Did I mention she is only 16?

She meets Smith at a University party one night, and they make-out drunkenly. Then she sees him a few days later. She begins telling him lies, so he doesn't figure out she isn't 18, like she told him. They start to hang out, getting much closer than either of them thought.

Then Is's "friends" tell him the truth about her. That she isn't what she says she is. He hates her for it. Later on, there is an accident, and Smith comes to her rescue.

This was a really good book. I didn't really enjoy the ending though. It didn't say much on the subject of what was going to happen with Is and Smith, which is what I wanted to know the most! But, oh well. I liked her character, even though she was really rude and bossy. At the end, she realizes that her being in charge isn't the most important thing. She really learned her lesson at the end, and that was the message. I recommend this book. It's a fast read, and really good.
