Caroline B. Cooney might have done it best with her book FACE ON A MILK CARTON. Perhaps you read it back in middle school.

It is a fascinating mystery that I'm sure we've thought about while growing up, wondering if we're in the wrong family. It is a storyline that does popup in many juvenile books. Like Avi's Nothing But the Truth and Running out of Time by Margret Peterson Haddix.
Cooney went on to make a series from THE FACE ON THE MILK CARTON with Whatever Happened to Janie, What Janie Found and Janie face to face. A Voice on the Radio is the finale of the series.
Now MTV has developed a new TV series, FINDING CARTER. The show stars SKINS Kathryn Prescott and THE FOSTERS' Alex Saxon. It starts tonight.
