I loved "The Face on the Milk Carton" for its simple and disturbing premise: what if you recognized yourself on a milk carton? True story: a child named Bonnie really did recognize herself on a milk carton. Read the facts here:

A really great book! I randomly picked this book up off the shelves and don't regret it; it was thrilling, suspenseful and very, very intriguing! I will definitely read the rest of the series.

I read this book in Grade 6 and I really love it. I think it is an amazing book. There is also a second one that I suggest you read after this one.

I first read this book in 3rd grade. I was trying to remember all the good books I read back then and remembered this one. Now in 9th grade, I read a lot of things that I had forgotten.

Still a great book. However, it is very intense and stressful. I also kept getting the feeling that Reeve was kinda forcing Janie to have sex, and if she didn't, he would take off. Not so sure how I feel about that part, but oh well.

I've heard about this book for years, but I never got around to reading it. Finally, I did. And I didn't realize that it was a series; the book doesn't end with everything tied up like I thought it would. It was a great book, I loved it. It's a very quick read; not very long at all. I will definitely read the next one!

The first time I read this book, I was in grade 5. Coincidentally, I found it on my English teacher's bookshelf six years later. With the intense memory of how I fell in love with the perplexity of Jane's identity, I decided to once again immerse myself in this series. Surprisingly, as a story intriguing to an eleven-year-old, The Face on the Milk Carton series proved likewise for a seventeen-year-old. I recommend this book to teenage girls who like romance, enjoy a little bit of mystery excitement, and have a rich fantasy life.

Sexual Content: Super minor. Just them checking into a motel and passionate kissing. They talk about having sex a lot, too.
