Lost and Found

Lost and Found by Carolyn Parkhurst

Since I'm on vacay this week, I brought along an ARC of a novel based on a reality television show. The two-person teams work on challenges to travel the globe on a scavenger hunt, collect Found Objects that they must continue to carry with them, and decipher clues on where to go next. Reality shows are, of course, more about the characters than the concept, and this story stays interesting by varying the point of view. Also, a sub-plot with gay characters added some thoughtful situations about reality and identity.
Carolyn Parkhurst breaks the fourth wall of the reality show and lets us see the behind the scenes action, as well as the scenes are captured on film but will never make it past the editing room.

I read it. 304 pgs.
