In the vein of psychological thrillers like We Were Liars, Girl on the Train, and Beware That Girl, bestselling author Caroline Cooney’s JANIE series delivers on every level. Mystery and suspense blend seamlessly with issues of family, friendship and love to offer an emotionally evocative thrill ride of a read.

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. How can it possibly be true? But it is.

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 12 years gone by. The Spring family wants justice, but who is really to blame? The Johnsons know that they must abide by the court decisions made, but it's difficult to figure out what's best for everyone.

Janie Johnson or Jenny Spring? Who is she? Certainly there's enough love for everyone, but how can the two separate families live happily ever after?
CAROLINE B. COONEY is the bestselling author of more than 30 young adult books, including the million-copy plus bestseller, The Face on the Milk Carton.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from More interesting than I thought In this second in the series, Janie (Jennie) has returned to her real home & family, the Springs, from whom she was kidnapped. She struggles to accept them while they, especially her mother & father, welcome her with open hearts although restrained in interaction with her. Janie keeps herself distant both emotionally and physically causing great pain to her parents & siblings. Jodie, her sister, aches for a sister who barely acknowledges her existence while her brother Stephen seethes inside with conflicting anger. She has twin brothers who are still quite young and she is puzzled by them although also amused by them at the same time. Janie yearns for the home where she was brought up since the age of three and her 'real' mother and father and her high school sweetheart, Reeve. Hannah, the Johnson's daughter who kidnapped Janie, claimed her as her own and left her with the Johnsons, is someone they can all agree to be sorely angry with to the extent that Stephen and Jodie go to New York looking for her, where she was briefly arrested two years ago. Everyone is soon to be ripped apart... again.
