    " I started my journey with Janie Johnson when I was 10. Now we're both adults, and I have mixed feelings about the last book in her tale. Overall, I liked it. Before this book came out, I'd forgotten alot of what had happened in the third and fourth books. Luckily, this book reminds you of what has happened. So much so that it would have been really annoying had I just read the previous books in the series. But in this case, I appreciated it. It was also rather predictable. I don't think I was even halfway through the book when I figured out the big plot twist. But it was still exciting to see everything play out. I also enjoyed reading the author's note that tells us how each of the books came to be. The journey is done, and both Janie and I are happy. "

    " A wonderful ending to an endearing series. It has been YEARS since I first read "The Face on the Milk Carton" and yet all of the characters come back as old friends. I highly recommend this book to anyone who read even part of the series, but of course I also recommend reading all five books. A quick read but a pleasure all the same. Thank you Ms. Cooney for writing the final chapter in Janie/Jennie's life! "

    " Maybe it is because I'm not as young as I was when I read the first books, but I just found the book to be a rush to tie up loose ends. None of the characters seemed like real people. If you loved the original "Janie" book(s), you might want to see Janie & Reeve back together, but don't buy the book. "

    " Beautifully done! You managed to write the perfect ending Cooney! Now I'm going to have to read some of your other books. Janie's story is over, and I want to meet the other characters of your imagination. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claire | 1/8/2014

    " I've loved the whole series since I was a kid and this was a great way to wrap it up. "

    " There are many things I could say about this (thankfully)last installment of the Face on the Milk Carton story, but I just remembered the words of my high school writing teacher: "It is harder to write short than to write long" so I, therefore, only have one word to say about this book--TEDIOUS. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Giselle | 12/28/2013

    " Decent conclusion to a long tale. I'm glad there was closure for everyone and that Hannah was finally caught. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison Rose | 12/26/2013

    " Took long enough for it to finally end... it was good though "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Molly Panzer | 12/16/2013

    " It was fun to read this after reading the other four over the years. "

    " A satisfying ending to a long running series "

    " Nice book, but I found the other books to be better :) "

    " One star because it kept me reading till the end in case something interesting happened. Spoiler: nothing interesting happened. Characterization only existed to fit the plot and changed for no reason I could see. I like a good wedding story, but this wasn't even that. V. disappointed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Johanna | 10/27/2013

    " I read all of Ms. Cooney's books as a child so my expectations for this book were probably too high. If I were a 13 year old girl again, I would love this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 10/26/2013

    " Oh. My. God. I don't even know how to put into words how great it turned out to be. I was skeptical at the beginning, but it turned out amazingly. Without a doubt this is my favorite of the entire series. It's bittersweet for it to come to an end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alia | 8/18/2013

    " A well done conclusion to the Face on the Milk Carton series. Gripping and interesting, even though it was somewhat predictable, and a fast read. To anyone who read this series as a teen, it's worth picking this one up to find out what happens to everyone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 6/25/2013

    " Pretty good, but too long and kind of repetitive. I always thought that scene in New York where the cop points out that Hannah could be any of these women was the most realistic situation, but of course it was not very satisfying, so I'm just as glad to have a real ending. "
