Ultimately, I'd probably give this a B-. I liked Janie, but I didn't like that her search ended where it did, and I found the cockamamie story spun to allow her to continue to keep her stable family environment completely over the top.
What I loved, though, was Cooney's brief intro to the book - the story of how she came to write it. It struck me powerfully as one of the examples that Elizabeth Gilbert talks about in this amazing TED speech in which she talks of creative works existing outside of the artist, as inspirational moments with a life of their own. And this classic certainly seems to have one.
