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.

From the cover:
No one ever really paid close attention to faces of the missing children on the milk cartons. Janie Johnson glanced at the face of the ordinary little girl - she felt overcome with shock. It was herself.
