Nostalgia Review- The Face on the Milk Carton

The Face on the Milk Carton by Caroline B. Cooney

Title: The Face on the Milk Carton
Author: Cynthia Hand
Publisher: HarperCollins/HarperTeen
Release Date: April 13th 1996
Pages: 192 pages (Paperback)

This is a nostalgia book. I read it a while back and am now reviewing it.

This was one of my favorite books when I was in Junior High. Janie Johnson is sitting in the cafeteria at school one day when she decides to drink milk (a rarity for her because she is allergic) and realizes her face is on the cover saying that she is missing. This launches into an epic adventure of finding out who she truly is and what happened all those years ago. Janie must realize that her life isn't at all what she thought it was and come to terms with who she really is. I loved this story, it was a dramatic mystery and coming of age story. I recommend reading this one and continuing on to the sequels.
