Did You Know? - The Face on the Milk Carton is a young adult novel written by author Caroline B. Cooney and first published in 1990. Part of The Janie Johnson series, it was later adapted into a film for television.
The book is about a 15-year-old girl named Janie Johnson, who finds out she was kidnapped, and her biological parents are somewhere in New Jersey.
She happens to look down at a milk carton one day, and she sees herself on a milk carton under the heading "Missing Child." Her life gets more stressful as she tries to hide the secret from her "parents," who she believes did not kidnap her.
Janie tells her next-door neighbor, Reeve, everything. Together the two of them unravel all of the secrets surrounding Janie Johnson's life.
The book was number 80 on the most frequently challenged books in the US for 1990-1999 and number 29 for 2000-2009.
