Janie Face to Face (Janie Johnson #5) by Caroline B. Cooney
Published January 8th 2013 by Delacorte Books for Young Readers


In this riveting and emotional conclusion to the thriller-romance Janie series, that started with The Face on the Milk Carton, all will be revealed as readers find out if Janie and Reeve’s love has endured, and whether or not the person who brought Janie and her family so much emotional pain and suffering is brought to justice.





This is the last book in the Janie Johnson series. I have been a fan of the Janie series for a long time and was surprised to discover that more books had been written after the first three. I didn’t care much for the fourth and liked the e-book (#4.5) well enough.

I have mixed feelings on this one. On one hand, it was a neat idea seeing Janie all grown up and also learning more about the current Hannah On the other, the book itself just didn’t hook me like the first three books.

I did like how the family situation continued to grow and seeing things from Hannah’s POV. The ending was pretty classic. This probably isn’t a book I’d care to re-read, though. It was cool seeing how things ended up for Janie and her families and Hannah, but I’d rather stick to the original books.
