No one ever really paid close attention to the faces of the missing children on the milk cartons. But as Janie Johnson glanced at the face of the ordinary little girl with her hair in tight pigtails, wearing a dress with a narrow white collar--a three-year-old who had been kidnapped twelve years before from a shopping mall in New Jersey--she felt overcome with shock. She recognized that little girl--it was she. How could it possibly be true?

Janie can't believe that her loving parents kidnapped her, but as she begins to piece things together, nothing makes sense. Something is terribly wrong. Are Mr. and Mrs. Johnson really Janie's parents? And if not, who is Janie Johnson, and what really happened?

    I thought this book was pretty good, it had mystery, romance, and drama. some people say this book is creepy but it really inst as creepy as everyone says it is. but on the downside, there is a lot happening and closer to the end it gets a little confusing. other than that is was an overall good book and I would defiantly recommend

      Good Book has a great storyline which is very mysterious. Most people say that the book is creepy but is for mystery lovers and horror lovers. It's Mostly about a highschool redhead who finds out her real past on a milk carton. Face on the Milk Carton also won the Iowa Teen Award in 1993 so I recommend it. At some point, I got a little lost in the book so I recommend to be re deep into detail so you don't lose track.

        3/10, not an amazing book the plot was pretty run on it was more romance than mystery. But the book is not completely terrible. The chapters are pretty long so if you like the chapters to be a little short this is not the book for you. But the background story is great, a teenager named Janie thinks her parents aren't her real parents and decides to investigate does she find out the truth or left curious. Trust me that wasn't even off the back of the book I just like sounding like one of those fancy people sometimes. Overall don't think the book is for everyone.

          the book is about a girl named Janie who sees her name on a milk carton and tries to find out if her real parents exist because she thinks she got kidnapped by fake parents!

                  tbh this book kinda sucked. 3/10 dont recommend. the plot was just as shallow as the romance was. do me a favor and pick an actual good book
