You just never know what will happen during a reality show and this book proves that point.
Several teams are competing on the reality show Lost and Found and they will travel all around the world during the competition. It is all worth it because the prize is one million dollars.
With cameras following along, the teams must decipher encrypted clues and recover mysterious artifacts. At the same time, they must beat their opponents at this game.
The players include a mother and daughter who have just gone through a rough time with their relationship due to a "secret" that the daughter kept. What the mother doesn't know is that the daughter is keeping another secret from her during the reality show. What is it? Among some of the other players are former child stars, brothers who tell jokes, former high school sweethearts, and ex-gays that are now born again Christians. You can just imagine whate you are in for with this list of team players. Right?
As we know reality shows don't often go as planned and anything can happen. Do the teams find out more about each other or more about themselves? This book takes a humorous spin on some topics that could be very serious if we took them that way but this is an excellent satire. This is a fast paced book and one that will make a great summer read. If you are a fan of reality shows, you will love this book.
