The Face on the Milk Carton

Most people will see the face of missing children and think nothing much of it. After all, who could recognize a child after twelve years? Well, only the child could. Caroline has gracefully shown just that by having Janie, a fifteen year old girl, see something that she would never except to see… her face on a milk carton missing person’s poster. Shocked by this, she hunts for the truth believing that her loving parents could not be capable of such a horrific crime… but could they?

As the truth comes out the questions come out : who is Janie Johnson?

Are Mr. and Mrs. Johnson really her parents and what is really happening?

This incredible book shows the bonds of love, family and the evil inside people. If you love suspense, drama and crime this is just the book for you. This book is the beginning of the Janie book series. Read the book and tell me what you think about it.`

I really enjoyed the plot of this book, but some of the characters I think needed some deeper personalities. I would have loved if the book also showed what Hannah was up to. Her character was a real mystery throughout this book and the series.

Warning: Spoiler Alert

 

I really liked how this book was based on Indian Mythology. There were times when the mythology wasn’t 100%, but it was mostly correct.

There wasn’t much character development in this book. Towards, the end I felt Kelsey get worse because she was felling insecure. I understood that she wanted to give Ren the opportunity to date others before her, but I also felt she did overreact and cause a lot of hurt.

The plot development was interesting. The book didn’t really bring out a villain. There was one, but the villain was non-existent. I did enjoy some of the plot twists in this book.

Overall, the book was okay. It needed work with some of the writing and character development. the story-line needed to be worked on a bit more.
