Great conclusion to an outstanding series

The entire Janie Johnson series was republished in attractive new paperback editions in May 2012 by Random House's Ember imprint. The updated covers coordinated with that of this new title. It's great to see new life breathed into a series that has been popular for so many years!

Good Points
The continued success of this series hinges on the fact that it involves a topic dear to every middle grade students' heart-- personal identity. How many of them secretly wish-- or fear-- that they are not the person they think they are? Since the series has been out for such a long time, I think that having Janie in college and thinking about getting married is not a bad thing. I read a lot of 1950s books (Sister of the Bride, etc.) that dealt with girls getting married, and was always somewhat intrigued by them. I think the same will hold true of this series. Cooney was able to work new technology into each book, and was able to sustain a coherent feeling throughout the series. I was glad to finally find out what would happen to the various characters, and thought that the book tied up a myriad of story lines in a very satisfactory way.

A Possible Great Stand Alone

For starters I have not read any of the previous four books to this series. I honestly thought this was just a sequel to Face on the Milk Carton. Oh well, I wrote the title as is bc it is possible to read just Janie Face to Face and enjoy it; which is what I did. :)

Good Points
The backstory! Snap! It was def interesting! I got a good sense of everyone's history and feelings reguarding Janie's past without feeling confused or overwelmed with emotions.
I loved the differenct characters pov bc I was able to see a bit more of each person and their past. I espeacially liked Hannah's pov! Her way of thinking was so twisted but it gave me insight as to why she did things she did. Even if it was all twisted.
