Lost and Found by Carolyn Parkhurst

Lost and Found by Carolyn Parkhurst

This is just the thing for anyone suffering withdrawals as reality tv has taken a summer hiatus. Lost and Found follows contestants as they wing around the globe, solving clues and collecting items--including parrots--on their scavenger hunt, with cameras recording their every move. Pairs include a mother and teenage daughter team who have recently gone through a heartbreaking experience, a newly married Christian couple who've renounced their homosexual lifestyle and are out to spread the word, two former child stars hoping to rekindle their careers, and two middle-aged, recently divorced brothers. Throw in a host who has all the warmth of Anne Robinson of Weakest Link and who's trying to get each couple to expose secrets and dirty laundry on camera, and you have an entertaining, and often thoughtful, fastpaced read.
