What Janie found by Caroline B. Cooney
In WHAT JANIE FOUND by Caroline B. Cooney, Janie's two families appear to have made peace. Life seems almost normal. Janie's even decided to speak to her former boyfriend, Reeve, again. But then Janie's Connecticut father suffers a sudden stroke, and this tragedy leaves her mother reeling. Janie must step in to manage family finances and to support her mother emotionally. While handling her father's business matters, Janie discovers one undeniable fact that could destroy both of her beloved families. And she alone must decide what to do. I absolutely love Caroline B. Cooney's books. This is the last book in the Face on the Milk Carton series, and I have to say it was the best. The book was very suspenseful in Janie's decision to do with what she found. Chessa H.
