I thought this book was good, but it was not my favorite book ever. It was a good companion to the previous novel in the Janie series, The Face on the Milk Carton. I thought she did a good job in developing the plot, and keeping it in line with the other novel. It really surprised me in some ways, and I think it was a really good book. I liked that I did not agree with all the decision made in the book, I was happy with it none the less. All in all, I recommend it, especially if you read the first book in the series.


How could it possibly be true? But it is true. As Janie Johnson glanced at the face of the ordinary little girl on the milk carton, she was overcome with shock. She recognized that little girl, it was she...
With the mystery of her kidnapping now unraveled, Janie's story continues, and the nightmare is not over. No one can bring back or relive the twelve years gone by. The Spring family wants justice, but who is really to blame? The Johnson's know that they must abide by the decisions made, but it's difficult to figure out what's best for everyone.

Janie Johnson or Jennie Spring? Who is she? Certainly there's enough love for everyone, but how can the two separate families live happily ever after?
