This is is the kind of book you can’t put down. One mystery after the other, Janie is trying to figure out her unclear past. One typical day at school, turns out being the most important of Janie’s life. She finds her face on the milk carton and realizes that the past years of her life are all a lie. Along the way she finds love, despair and confusion.

I really loved this book! There was never one boring chapter or a point that went on and on. Caroline B. Cooney did a good job of keeping the suspense throughout the book. The only thing you need to be careful of (and I didn’t enjoy) is there are some suggestive parts throughout the book. I would not recommend this to younger readers. Overall though, this book kept me on my toes and is one of my personal favorites.
Good Points
Great storyline, suspenseful,

This book definitely had an intriguing storyline. After glancing at the synopsis I just had to read it. However, at times, the story was a bit unbelievable. Through what means Janie was kidnapped just doesn't seem to make sense, nor do her reactions to this at times. She seems unlike the average teenager and never argues with her family. Her perfect family. They were rich, they were always together and there never seemed to be a problem until Janie saw that milk carton picture. Excuse me, but it all just seemed a little too perfect. Nevertheless, I plan on continuing the series because with an ending like that, who couldn't?

The Face On The Milk Carton
This book is a page-turner; The Face On The Milk Carton by Caroline B. Cooney is with out a doubt an outstanding book.
Can you imagine one day at school you have milk and on the back of the carton are missing kid ads and you are the missing kid, kidnapped twelve years ago. Well this is what happened to this courageous fifteen-year-old Janie Johnson. She was kidnapped from a shopping mall in New Jersey twelve years ago and as she gets pieces of the puzzle she finds nothings making sense.
It is an entertaining epic of a girls search and perseverance to find her true identity. This is a great book for teens and young adults probably anywhere any where from 13 to 18 but is a 6.0 grade level book. If you read and enjoy this book grab the second one of the series What Janie Found. Another book by Caroline B. Cooney is The Ransom of Mercy Carter. I am inspired and moved by Janies search for her identity.

This book is soooo awesome. I like it because it comes in a series. It is romantic and mysterious at the same time. The character is very selfish but in the meantime... in love and in curiosit. I recommend this book to anyone that loves mystery and romance books. This book is actually true and very cool!

I really hope that you enjoy it! This book has many characters just like us. Keep reading the series to stick with the same books that you love! I hope you al will enjoy "The Face on the Milk Carton"

A good book about a child that is unaware of where she came from. When Janie picks up a milk carton in the school cafeteria, she finds it surprising that hers is the face of that on the milk carton. This book is filled to the brim with wonderment and strange mystery. I'd recommend it to any 9-15 aged child.

This book, though entertaining and suspenseful while I read it, was not the kind of book that I would reread or even think about for long before moving on to the next book. Im not saying I dont recommend this book, because I do, but if youre looking for a book that will leave you breathless, this is not it. The main character Janie leads a typical life until her mysterious past catches up with her one day at lunch in the cafeteria. Her own picture from when she is a young girl is staring back at her from a milk carton. The missing girl on the milk carton has a different name, but Janie knows its her. This event triggers some of Janies memories, but mainly makes her suspicious and eager to find out the truth about her childhood.

This book is about a girl named Janie who has a rather normal life until she happens to see her face on a milk carton which is showing missing children.

The story may seem a little out there but it's very well written and it makes Janie's story so believable.
