Publisher's Summary

When 15-year-old Janie Johnson sees her own face in the missing children box on a milk carton, her world begins to blur. Was she kidnapped when she was a baby? Who are her parents? And who are Mr. and Mrs. Johnson? Janie’s search for the answers will lead her back 12 years into memories of another house, another family, another life. Her questions threaten to destroy the love she feels for her parents and the security they have given her. But it is a search she cannot ignore.
The Face on the Milk Carton has been extremely popular ever since it was first released. An IRS-CBC Children’s Choice Book, it also has been made into a frequently-aired television special. Recorded Books is proud to offer an unabridged recording of this riveting story that takes on new drama and urgency through Alyssa Bresnahan’s stirring narration.

Unimpressive, would not recommend

This book was recommended to me by a few co-workers to use with some of my reluctant reader students. There were several issues for me such as the book could have been half the length and actually said more, much of it was similar to eavesdropping on a series of vapid (even for extremely immature high school girls ) conversations, the ending disappointed every student as well as myself and definitely made us not want to read the sequel, it gave an inaccurate depiction of the Hare Krishna movement, etc. All in all, very disappointing and I would not recommend this although not for the reasons most of the other critical reviews state. It is just flat out not a well-written book

I love this book I just wish it's ending would have been different, like I wish we meant Janie's parents.
