The main theme is the need and importance of communication between families, especially between parents and their children.
THe main theme is to finding your idenity is filled with obstacles and road bumps but is conquered with acceptance
the theme is adolescence and finding yourself. also it could be things are not always as they seem because she just assumed that that was her family and it had always been, but in reality she had been kidnapped. also the difference between fantasy and reality because throughout the book, janie always had 'daymares' and questioned wether they could be real or not often.
its amazing how an author can find a way to explain growing up and how its not easy in a way that both young adults and adults can understand. congrats to caroline b. cooney
