The Face on the Milk Carton
Author: Caroline B. Cooney

I haven't found a child that didn't like this book :) It is a suspenseful read that isn't too difficult.

Some of us are old enough to remember when the pictures of missing children were featured on milk cartons.

I've seen the movie based on this book and the sequel. The book was a fast read but well-written. And it leaves off on a cliffhanger, so you might want to make sure you have the next book before starting this one.

This is the first book in the Janie series, and the only one of the 4 I really enjoyed, although it does leave you with more questions than answers.

I loved this book, was very good throughout, but I was just a little disappointed by the ending. Keeps building up thru the whole book, but then the ending was not as good as I thought it would have been. Im glad I read it.

This was not what I was looking for or expecting after having read a basic summary. First there is a whole romantic aspect that I would not have guessed was there. Secondly this is a four part series which according to others goes down hill but in order to reach a some what satisfying you have to read. Thirdly the ending to this book is definetly a cliff hanger. Fourthly it is definetly a young adult book in terms of writing style (e.i. descriptions, length ect) which as a teen I found not to be enough. It does have a good build up and decent plot line but overall I would not have picked it had I known what I was getting into.
