WARNING: IF YOU HAVE NOT READ "THE FACE ON THE MILK CARTON", "WHATEVER HAPPEND TO JANIE" AND "THE VOICE ON THE RADIO ", THIS BOOK REVIEW COULD GIVE AWAY IMPORTANT HIGHLIGHTS IN THE BOOKS ABOVE. DO NOT READ FARTHER!
Janie Johnson, or shall I say Jenny Spring? Janie, the name that she chooses to keep, finds out that her parents aren't realy her true parents, but they are the only parents that she has ever known. "What Janie Found" is the fourth book in the Janie series. In this book, Janie's curiosity and hatred toward Hannah (her kiddnapper) leads her to try and find Hannah. Her father had fallen into a coma, and Janie had to help with the bills, cleaning up, and other chores. While she searches through the bills, she finds a file labled "HJ". She knew that this simply means one thing: Hannah Johnson. She peers into the folder and finds a check with an address. That's where Hannah is! All this time her father had been supporting Hannah. Janie had thought that Hannah was dead, in a cult somewhere, in a bad situation, but atleast she was out of there lives! One thing: Janie knows something about the place where Hannah is. This is where... this is the place I shall stop, or I will give it all away. Read this book to find out what happends.
The series starts in "The Face on the Milk Carton" when Janie finds that she was kidnapped as a child, by her "parents'" daughter. Then, in "Whatever Happened to Janie?" she tried living with her birth family. Her boyfriend, Reeve, betrayed her by telling her story on his radio show, in "The Voice on the Radio, and now, in this book, there is another turn of events.
When Janie's "father" has a heart attack and a stroke, she helps out by becoming his secretary and sorting his bills. However, she notices a simple folder labled "HJ". "Hannah Johnson", she immediately knows, and she wants to find out why there is a folder for her. She thought Hannah was dead and free from hurting them again, forever!
This was a good book, though rather short and unfinished, compared to the other books in the series. I'd recommend it to any young adult fan of these books, however! Be sure to read the others in the series, first, and you may also enjoy the TV movie, "The Face on the Milk Carton".
The main reason I thought this book was just okay but not wonderful was because I liked the other three books better. Since this book was the last in the series, I was hoping for more excitement than ever. I was a bit disappointed that this novel was not as suspenseful or interesting as I had hoped and expected. For example, while other characters in the book didn't know that Hannah was being supported by Mr. Johnson, Janie and the reader did. I wished that, like the other three books, the reader would be just as confused as Janie and the other characters.
On the other hand, there were reasons that I liked this book. I was really glad that Caroline B. Cooney kept the same characters with the same personalities as in the previous books. I fell in love with all the characters in the first book, and I continued to love them throughout the whole series. In the third book, she added a lot of new characters. In this novel, however, she only incorporated one new character, which was Stephen's girlfriend, Kathleen.Read more ›

Cooney finds a new way to destroy Janie. I mean, as a character in a series, that's her function, but you got to cringe a bit when you see there's a new book. Read morePublished 25 days ago by Dione Basseri
