Janie Face to Face

School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up-Cooney wraps up her popular thriller romance series that debuted more than 20 years ago about a young girl who discovers her face on a milk carton, setting in motion a series of rollercoaster events that affected many lives. In this installment (Delacorte, 2013), Janie Johnson/Jenny Spring is still walking the tightrope between her "real" parents and the parents who raised her for most of her life and is desperately trying to figure out who she is. Narrator Alyssa Bresnahan has a difficult task, as Cooney moves the viewpoint from character to character in order to present the whole story. She conveys the confusion and frustration of Janie/Jenny using a higher pitch and alternating volume as she goes from shy and fearful to strong and joyful. Bresnahan tackles each of the secondary characters including Jenny's brothers and sister, both sets of her parents, on again off again boyfriend Reeve, and the unstable kidnapper Hannah who started it all. Each voice has a unique quality and the character comes through clearly thanks to the narrator's use of tone, pitch, and volume. Those unfamiliar with the series will still be able to follow the plotting as Cooney continually refers back to past events. However, after listening to this engrossing tale, they are sure to want to discover how it all started. Cooney has also included a bonus short story, "What Janie Saw," that fans of the series will embrace with gusto.- Shari Fesko, Southfield Public Library, MI (c) Copyright 2013.

Publishers Weekly Review

Janie Face to Face

Publishers Weekly


(c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

Janie Johnson is a former missing child-her face appeared on the side of milk cartons-who has reformed her life and managed to finally get back on track. However, a true-crime writer wants to dig up the past by helping her solve old mysteries making her the subject of his next book. In this conclusion to Cooney's Janie series, narrator Bresnahan offers a performance that is entertaining from start to finish. Bresnahan's Janie is as real as they come: flawed, haunted, hopeful, and, at times, desperate. Bresnahan deftly captures listener attention in what proves an enjoyable listening experience. Also included is a special short story from Cooney. Ages 12-up. A Delacorte hardcover. (Nov) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

BookList Review

Janie Face to Face

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

Readers who have followed Janie/Jennie's story since The Face on the Milk Carton (1990) will be eager to learn how the series concludes in this fifth book. Ever since Janie recognized her face on a milk carton and dealt with the media aftermath, she has been eager for anonymity, and she sees her chance to blend in as a college student in crowded New York City. But her new life is threatened when a famous crime writer starts hounding her relatives and threatening to publish a book. There's one person Janie can turn to, though her ex, Reeve. Chapters alternate between Janie's former kidnapper, Hannah, who is seeking revenge on the parent thief, and the main narrative, which switches its third-person point of view between Janie, her siblings, and others. The revolving cast of characters will keep readers interested, as will Janie's search for identity. And while the thriller elements never reach a truly exciting climax and the culprit behind the tell-all isn't entirely believable, loyal followers will see this novel through and make sure Janie gets the happy ending she deserves. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The Face on the Milk Carton was a New York Times best-seller and became a movie on Lifetime. Fans will be eager for this finale.--Kelley, Ann Copyright 2010 Booklist
