This is the second in this series I've read about child abduction. Telling the story from the child's viewpoint at 16 is quite interesting. When a teenager finds her face on a milk carton she begins to remember her lost childhood. She was abducted at age three and the memories come back slowly, stimulated at first by the dress the little girl is wearing that she remembered. The vacillating emotions seem natural as she wonders what her parents were like but still she loves the parents she now has. Did her current parents taker her from her original family? I think the author caught the emotions quite well - so well that at times I felt like crying with this young woman. How the story is resolved continues in following books.
