Isabel’s friends are terrified of her, her teachers can’t get through to her, her family doesn’t understand her, and that’s just the way she likes it. Nothing gets to Isabel–not even her mother’s sudden death. When she meets an enigmatic guy named Smith, Isabel fights hard to keep hold of her cool, snarky image, but she soon finds herself coming apart at the seams, feeling the pain, and missing her mom. Let’s Get Lost is a poignant and utterly compelling novel, told with all the author’s trademark wit and sharp observation.
