When you go to the lunchroom and grab yourself a carton of milk you may have never noticed that on the back is sometimes a child who has gone missing.  In this suspenseful book, Janie, a 15 year girl, goes down to have lunch with all her friends and when she grabs her friend’s milk carton her life is turned upside down when she finds her own picture!  Janie is forced to get to the bottom of this unexplained mystery.  As she begins to have flashbacks of a childhood and people she does not remember, Janie continues to dig up clues about who she really might be.  Are her parents kidnappers? Did her biological mother leave her to join a cult? Are her parents really her grandparents? Who is Janie and what is her story??  Read her story to find out!!

This book is especially liked by young adult girls who like a good fiction suspense book.  I highly recommend it because the excitement to finding out who Janie’s parents are and unfolding the mystery of her kidnapping is especially exciting.
