This behind-the-scenes look at a fictional reality TV show rips the thin veneer off this form of entertainment. Reader Anna Fields shines as she portrays the seven incompatible couples taking part in a game called "Lost and Found." As each contestant is eliminated, the show's signature line is: "You have lost the game, but what have you found?" Most poignant is the relationship between the clueless mother, Laura, and her daughter, Cassie, who once hid an accidental pregnancy until she gave birth by herself in her room, a secret they obviously do not wish to be made public. Listening to this novel, which is both satirical and sad, helps one understand the attraction of some to public humiliation and greed. R.O. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
