My son had to read this book for school, so I read it as well to see what it was about and keep in touch with what he's doing in school. I found myself really enjoying this book. The PA announcements are hilarious!

If you read "The Revealers" and wondered what happened next, this is the book that answers that question. It's the same characters, about a year later.

My son was only assigned "True Shoes" and not "The Revealers," but he told me he found starting "True Shoes" confusing because he didn...more
I was disappointed with True Shoes. There seemed to be a lot of information that wasn't explained - What is the story between Catalina and Richie? How did there become so much technology in one school year? I was looking forward to sharing with my students the effects of cyberbullying with this story, but unfortunately I won't be.

This is a terrific book especially for middle school kids.
The story is wonderful and the characters and their
circumstances ring true!
True Shoes covers the gamut of the middle school experience
with all its drama and intensity. It does this in a
fast paced and engaging style, I could not put it down.
Moreover my middle school twins, a boy and girl, loved it
as much as I did. This is a must read for middle schools.
A good sequel to my friend, Doug Wilhelm's YA book The Revealers about bullying. An apropos subject, and although I couldn't necessarily relate to the problems these kids have, Doug assures me that they're very real and salient to today's young adults. I loved hearing his "voice" in the writing and reading his more personal comments in the afterward. Go DOUG!
Great book. Doug Wilhelm based the places on my school!
