The rising action is what occurs from the time Janie recognizes her photo on the milk carton to when she breaks up with Reeve because she refuses to take any real action regarding the situation, which leads to the story's climax.  It includes events like discovering the dress from the photo in the attic, confronting her parents about her birth certificate and learning about Hannah, and driving out to New Jersey with Reeve where she sees her brothers.
