Eighteen-year-old Arcadia wants adventure. Living in a tiny Florida town with her dad and four-year-old brother, Cadie spends most of her time working, going to school, and taking care of her family. So when she meets two handsome cousins at a campfire party, she finally has a chance for fun. They invite her and friend to join them on a road trip, and it’s just the risk she’s been craving-the opportunity to escape. But what starts out as a fun, sexy journey quickly becomes dangerous when she discovers that one of them is not at all who he claims to be. One of them has deadly intentions.
A road trip fling turns terrifying in this contemporary story that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.

Five 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.
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.
Ratings and Reviews from the Librarians
Miranda rated it ★★★ and said, “Thanks to Netgalley.com for access to this title. This is your basic road trip novel, equipped with crazy events and people. But at the same time, it’s not, as it is told in small chunks and is also short stories all tied together with one character. I liked this, in that I’m always game for eccentric people and the crazy things they do. That’s just part of life. But it wasn’t the best road trip book I’ve ever read. Recommended for fans of Paper Towns and Wherever Nina Lies.”
