When Janie first realized she was the missing child on the milk carton, her whole world fell apart. At first, she wondered if the parents she loved so much had actually kidnapped her, but it turns out that they were only trying to protect her. Now that the mystery of Janie's kidnapping has been unravelled, she is caught on the horns of a huge dilemma. Since the age of three, she has been calling the Johnsons "Mommy" and "Daddy." Suddenly, at the age of 15, she's expected to start her life all over again with a house full of noisy siblings and two strangers who are her biological parents. Will things ever be normal again? Young adult listeners may see something of themselves in the teen-aged Janie, whose anger, stubbornness, and rebellion are natural in her situation. Narrator Alyssa Bresnahan skillfully conveys the powerful emotions and the realistic decisions that this award-winning author so deftly tackles.

"In this sequel to the popular THE FACE ON THE MILK CARTON, Janie/Jenny goes to live with her real family from whom she was abducted when she was 3-years-old. She is torn between her love for the parents who raised her and the family she was born into. In this slightly voiced reading, Bresnahan delivers a perfectly balanced performance. She is authentic as an angry, sometimes rebellious teenager. Her use of pauses and phrasing is well timed, especially at dramatic points in the story. Additionally, her clear and meticulous diction is a pleasure to listen to. S.S.R. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine "
