I LOVED this book!
What a fantastic find! Lost and Found takes place in the midst of a reality TV show, a game that combines Amazing Race travel challenges with a scavenger hunt (after listening to this, I wished the show was real because it sounded like fun!). The story follows a number of the participants, telling the story of the game through their perspectives, and in addition, telling their back stories which includes secrets that start to bubble up to the surface as the fatigue, stress and pressure of the game grow. The characters are all well drawn and three dimensional--some are less likeable than others but all have sympathetic moments. I was sucked in to the story from the first moment and listened every chance I got until I finished it. A great one for beach or road trip listening, the time will fly by!
Special notice to the reader, Blair Brown, who does a fantastic job of different voices and accents for the many different characters. She is one of the few readers whose name on an audiobook would make me check out an otherwise unknown book, based on her strength as a narrator.
If you are a fan of reality TV shows, don't miss this!

It's very rare for me to bail out on a book, even if I'm not enjoying it, but I felt I was wasting my time on this one. I don't watch reality TV shows. Perhaps that's a prerequisite for enjoying this book.
