I have students who don't love to read. I can usually sell them on The Face on the Milk Carton series and know that they will continue reading the series all school year. What would you think if you saw your face in one of those missing children ads on a school milk carton? If you can suspend disbelief that Janie makes it to high school without ever seeing a milk carton (her "parents" tell her she's allergic,) it's an interesting premise. Should she go back to her real family, a middle class one with loads of kids, or stay with the parents she's always known, in her comfortable house living next door to her boyfriend?

I never read this series, but I can see how it would totally pull someone in to keep reading! I'm curious just from reading this card...how many books are there total?
i have to agree with @timeturnerjones as a person who love reading i feel like i need to look more into this series and well maybe i will start it soon hahahahah thanks @librarylady for introducing such a great sounding series!
Series order is: The Face on the Milk Carton, Whatever Happened to Janie?, The Voice on the Radio, What Janie Found, What Janie Saw, and Jamie Face to Face.
@librarylady thanks for the information!! i will totally check this out! even though i might be a little bit too old for the series but it sounds so interesting that i don't think i can stop myself! thanks for the recommendation ^^
