On the surface, this seems like a fun, easy-going novel. Seven pairs are on a reality show (kind of like Amazing Race) traveling the world and searching for clues in an attempt to win $1 million. They pick up clues and objects along the way that they must carry with them (including a live parrot).
But there's deeper stuff going on in each of these relationships as well. As the race goes on, we learn about the deep secrets that these pairs carry with them.
I liked this book. It was fun, but it also very human as well. A good vacation read.
