Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Unimpressive, would not recommend"

    This book was recommended to me by a few co-workers to use with some of my reluctant reader students. There were several issues for me such as the book could have been half the length and actually said more, much of it was similar to eavesdropping on a series of vapid (even for extremely immature high school girls ) conversations, the ending disappointed every student as well as myself and definitely made us not want to read the sequel, it gave an inaccurate depiction of the Hare Krishna movement, etc. All in all, very disappointing and I would not recommend this although not for the reasons most of the other critical reviews state. It is just flat out not a well-written book

    I love this book I just wish it's ending would have been different, like I wish we meant Janie's parents.

    "Another great book from my past"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Abrupt End"

    I found the premise of the story quite interesting but was surprised it finished as it did.

    I realise now there is a second book but in reality think this could have one story - felt a bit cheated .
