The Good Girl's Guide to Getting Lost

Rachel Friedman

Overview

Rachel Friedman had always done exactly what was expected of her: she got good grades, played it safe, and always thought she knew how her life would pan out. That is, until the day she decided she didn't want that life anymore. To escape the humdrum of impending life decisions, Friedman bought a one-way ticket from the U.S. to Ireland, a place she had never been, and where she knew no one.

With a sudden irresistible desire to explore, Friedman embarked on a grand adventure that led her to form an unlikely bond with her antithesis, Carly, a free-spirited Australian girl. Together, the two friends set off on a year-long adventure that took them to three continents, countless unforgettable experiences, and made Friedman realize she is capable of a lot more than she ever thought possible. This coming-of-age memoir captures all the turbulent excitement of traveling, following the author as she evolves from a fresh-faced college graduate to a self-assured woman of the world.
