I actually liked this book quite a bit, but the time travel elements that had previously been semi-understandable were suddenly to the point where I wasn't sure anyone but the author knew what was happening. All of the stuff with time splitting was poorly explained, and I wasn't sure how the different branches of time worked. Could you jump from one to another? Is that what the characters were doing? Or were the branches sealed off from each other?

And I hated the ending. Really? The main charact
Still waiting for the release date! This is all the info I could find, and 'very reliable' from Wikipedia, it seems there will be an eighth book named "Redeemed"! What if Jonah is one of the Wright Brothers or Amelia Earhart's son?!

From an eBay ARC:

"It's morning as usual at the Skidmore household - until Charles Lindbergh, the famous historical pilot, appears in their living room. Jonah can hardly believe his eyes - and then Lindbergh grabs Katherine and vanishes again. And that's not all. Chip

I have loved Haddix for years and have enjoyed most of her books. This book is not one of my favorites or one that I will be revisiting any time soon.

Mystery surrounding main character solved
Interesting characters
Feels like the end of the series

Cons -
Pacing is off... Way too much talking and not enough action/story movement
It was hard to follow all of the paradoxes as an adult... If I as an adult had problems with this book, I am sure the intend audience will too
The dialogue didn't flow

The book "Revealed" by Margaret Peterson Haddix is very good. This book is book seven in the missing series. This science fiction book is about Jonah, a missing child in history, finding out his real identity. He goes on an adventure to figure out his real identity and save everyone from time collapsing. I rated this book five stars.
This book is science fiction. This book is fairly long, and can be hard to understand. I recommend that you read the first six books before you read this to avoid co
Like im so confused and happy and angry and sad like where do i put all the feels wen no one has read this series which make my eyes explode into niagra falls guy pick this up if you want 6 easy quick awesome reads and a seventh book that is so complex and awesome that the possibility of time paradox makes your head explode. Sorry for my rant

So excited to finish this series so fr they have been amazing books
I have been so looking forward to every addition to this series about the missing children throughout history who have actually been kidnapped are involved in time travel, and do not know who they really are/were. This book feels like it is the last book of the series, with Jonah, the main character, finally discovering who he really is.

Unfortunately this was my least favorite book in the series! It was so confusing! If I as an adult cannot piece together the back and forth, then how is a 5th g

In the sci-fi novel "Revealed" by Margaret Peterson, a boy named Jonah Skidmore goes back in time to stop his two enemies, Gary and Hodge from causing time to collapse. With help from his friend, Angela, he goes back into time and meets Charles Lindbergh, who plays a huge role in stopping their evil plan. Jonah knows if Gary and Hodge succeed in collapsing time, everything within with in that collapsed time zone will be destroyed. Jonah tells himself “Gary and Hodge aren’t going to get their way ...more
This really is the ending that the Missing series needed, which makes it interesting that an eight title is soon to be published.

Everything here is wrapped up nicely, albeit with a level of confusion that is always going to come from time travel and the paradoxes that go with it. We finally get to find out just who Jonah was, and who he wasn't with some help - well a lot of help - from Charles Lindbergh along the way.

Some great twists and turns along the way, although you'll probably have neede

Margaret Haddix's REVEALED is the seventh installment in THE MISSING series. I love this series for many reasons--the characters, the time traveling science fiction, and the wonderful twists Haddix puts in history. I love reading about the historic context and the actual people from history involved in the plot.
This book takes its focus on Jonah's mysterious past life and the famous pilot Charles Lindbergh. Lindbergh suddenly appears in Jonah's living room, grabs Katherine, and disappears almos
This book was an utterly confusing plane crash
This is a great series aimed at younger readers. The protagonist and his cohorts think and act like 11-13 year olds, which they are. This never bothered me, it is a YA series, after all. The only immaturity that bothered me was from the adults who were 'unaged' in Revealed. I found them annoying and I don't believe it was necessary to have them regress so far emotionally to prove the point that they were now kids again. They retained all memory and knowledge of their adult lives, their personali ...more

I really loved Revealed. As a high school student, I found the reading level a tad low, so I would recommend this book to anyone who is in middle school or above and is looking for a quick, engaging read. As with all of Haddix's books, revealed was never boring, with lovable characters who will steal your heart and keep you entertained with a wonderfully witty plot line. However, this book was not at all challenging, and I've read better from this author, so that is why I only gave it four stars ...more
3 1/2 stars. I thought for sure this was the last one! Many loose ends were tied up. I have really enjoyed Haddix's notes at the end of the last few books...her additional explanations and her personal reasons for choosing the content are especially interesting. My only complaint is one that Haddix herself mentions in a thank you to her publisher--the time traveling gets very convoluted and confusing in this book. I eventually gave up trying to understand everything and just kind of went with it ...more

I would recommend this book to fantasy and science fiction readers
It's about these kids who have normal lives but they figure out something about them that could change the past, present, and future so they are sent back in time to fix the past and future.

It is a morning at the Skidmore household—until Charles Lindbergh, the famous pilot, appears in their living room. and then Lindbergh grabs Katherine and disappears again. And that’s not all. Chip, Andrea, and all the other children fro

The seventh book in the Missing series. This one involves Charles Lindbergh.
In this seventh book in Margaret Peterson Haddix's The Missing series, Jonah finally learns who he was before he was stolen out of history. Centered around the 1932 kidnapping of Charles Lindbergh's son, it is unlike any of the other trips back through time. Do not read this book if you have not read the other books in the series. Haddix packs this book with twist after twist, and continually shocks the reader with reveals. Believe me when I say that the end is completely unexpected. A must read ...more

I have loved this series, and I loved everything about this book except one thing; it was too confusing for me to handle. As it started to explain Gary and Hodge's plan with the time splits and stuff, it got too complicated. And then with Jonah and Angela planning what to do next go too confusing to a point where I just gave up trying to keep up. And when Jonah started talking to JB in the end, I was practically skipping over it. But I was never a person who was able to think about
I thought this was the last in the found series since many of the questions/problems were resolved, but it isn't. There is one more (and final?) book, The series just seems to be dragging on. Again my favorite part was the historical synopsis included at the end of the story. My biggest complaint with this one is that the time traveling is very convoluted and confusing. I couldn't keep track or make sense of all of the different time splits.

Sexual Content: none
Language: none
Violence: mild
Do you know what I hate most about books with time traveling? Time traveling. If you do all of the calculations and draw out all of the timelines, you will end up with a nasty looking graph. Like really nasty. There will be a ton of lines everywhere, and the timeline will be so messed up that you have no idea how to read it.

If I drew a timeline based on this book, I'm going to go insane. If I try to understand this timeline, I will go insane. That is why I'm not going to try, and I can't blame J
4.5 stars
Wow that was a very delightful read. Jonah Skidmore is back to save another kid in time but this time its his sister Kathrine who is kidnapped by Charles Lindbergh. Jonah must do all he can to save her and save his time
So I thought that there would be one more book beyond this so I went in with that assumption. I now realize that it was the finale. As a finale its was good there was one major problem I had but Ill get to that. The fast pace and this entire book was really enjoyable and
Another amazing book in Margaret Peterson Haddix's "The Missing" series! "Revealed" had a feeling of familiarity of the previous books, which was great and added to the continuity of the series. However, it was completely different than the other books in some ways. I don't want to give anything away, so I cannot say exactly how it was different, but it is definitely worth reading to find out! As the title implies, some things are revealed, including Jonah's identity. However, just when you (and ...more

Honestly, this book is confusing. If you aren't very invested in the series and you aren't ready to be thoroughly confused, and not quite understand even when you're finished, don't read this.
There are so many paradoxes to keep track of it isn't even funny. I, myself, do like to be confused during books and the sci-fi talk intrigued me, but if that isn't you, you probably won't enjoy as much as say the first or second book.
Once you get to the middle of the book it starts to take off, and from
Safe Review: A little slow at first, but it picks up pretty soon and Haddix's writing soon takes you away to Jonah's dilemmas. AMAZING and I recommend this series (less for Risked; didn't like it all too much) to EVERYONE!

Crazy Review: I CRIED and DIED but SURVIVED. At the end, I had happy, give-me-the-next-book tears. There will most likely be a short ebook before the next one (NEXT YEAR?!), but what money have me to buy it?:( I might make an exception tho... (view spoiler)

I really enjoyed reading the final book in this series. It really answers a lot of questions, and I think the series has a great conclusion, unlike most series I've read. This book was really confusing at first, with all the time travel branches and everything, but everything gets explained in the end. I would like to see another book about what happens to the new character, and if he goes on any time travel adventures and whatnot. But, overall, this book was very well written and I am really ha ...more
I'm torn. It's a good mystery book and I could see younger readers loving it. For older readers, it moves a little slow and you'll have probably figured out who (view spoiler) long before Jonah does.

As a older reader and a history fan I'd say that I prefer the more history based ones to this one. I did find myself excited to see how everything would end up and I liked that "Revealed" had Jonah on his own.

Now what I didn't like. (view spoiler)
Shannon Grieshaber
Disappointed. I've been waiting six years to read about the time period that I knew had to be coming in this series - Charles Lindbergh's era. Sadly, Ms. Haddix did not do it justice (although I did highly enjoy his story in her author's notes). Another disappointment - Jonah's true identity. A final disappointment - confusion! Yes, time travel stories are confusing, but this is the most perplexing one I've ever read. In her acknowledgements, Haddix thanks her publishers, "The time-travel issues ...more
I really enjoyed all of the books in this series. However, Revealed left me a bit off kilter.
It had the elements we all loved from the previous books. The banter, characters, time travel, mystery. But I had a few issues with this book nonetheless.
First, Jonah's town turned into 13 year olds. This seemed a bit unnecessary to me and it didn't really go anywhere important plot-wise.
Second, the paradoxes in this book were too much. Jonah would say something like, "thinking about it made my head h
