The book "What Janie Found By Caroline B. Cooney" isn't the best book. You would probably want to read the whole series to really get into it because it is a mystery. But I didn't read any of the others. So I couldn't really follow with it because sometimes I would just get lost I wouldn't know what is happening with the story. Janie's two families have been peaceful lately. She is even talking to her old boyfriend, Reeve now. But then her dad in Connecticut has a stroke. So she starts taking care of him and taking care of his business. And she supports her mother personally because she is sad. When she is at her dad's business, then she discovers a folder. A secret that her father is holding from the rest of her family. So it is up to her to make a huge decision. She can either tell her family about the secret or keep it hidden to herself. Not many teens have to deal with big decisions like this. You will find out if you read it. But personally, if I was you, I wouldn't. It is kind of boring to me. Maybe you will like it, but it is not my kind of book.

    A big disapointment

    In all four books Janie always wonders what would happen if she were to run into Hannah and when she finally gets her chance she chickens out! She traveld practically around the country just to write a letter she never sent. When I finshed the book all I could think of was what a waist of time! even though it was nice that she finally made ammends with her older brother but that wasnt even her main intention for going up there. I just wish there could have been atleast one interaction with Hannah that would have made it better
