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.

Yes, I would recommend this audiobook to a friend. It has so many twists and turns as it is a psychological thriller for YA's. I read it as a YA in the early 90's in book form but got more out of it in audiobook form this time.
Reeve was my favorite character I think because he just was kind and helpful to his neighbor Janie. Janie was also a favorite because she was a main character with some serious depth to her.
Of course it was but again, just like the last one I read, I had to sleep and eat among other things in life that draw you away from books.
I think the narrator could have been better. I mean she was good but Janie's friends voices were slightly confusing as they overlapped occasionally.
