I thought there was something that was going to be so crazy it would blow my mind. I thought Jonah was going to have a big role in history but he was just a child that they used for bait on Charles Linderbergh. SAD :((less)

So excited to finish this series so fr they have been amazing books
This book took me like 2 months to read thank you school.

I liked it, but that's it. It felt very different from the rest of the series. Usually they spend a lot of time in the time period and you learn a lot about the particular history in subject with some time travel problems. This book was just Jonah on his own, mostly in the time period when he was a baby, rather than the 1930s. Heck I think the most interesting part of this book was the Author's Note where Haddix talks about the conspiracy

As the finale, supposedly, it is quite bad. There are a lot of things happening (since it's the "last-but-not-the-last" book and the identity of Jonah will be revealed) and most of it are new and quite confusing, but I got to say I skimmed/skipped some parts since some are just words describing this and that, just making the sentence/paragraph, thus the story/chapter, quite longer.

I really expected many things about this finale, but I think this is heading towards the path of Infinity Ring,

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

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

The seventh book in the Missing series. This one involves Charles Lindbergh.
I can't believe how everything worked out in the last few chapters, well kinda.

I remember a time Before Goodreads when I had a small piece of paper taped to my bookcase of all of the release dates for the next books in series. I remember writing the release date for Revealed and thinking "2014! Boy, that's so long from now! I'll be done with high school then!" Well, it's now 2019 and I finally got around to reading this book. My younger self would be upset with me, but even though it took a while for

Okay. So first of all; I am so done with MPH's plot twists. They strike me in the feels every time.

Second of all; her writing keeps getting better and better.

And lastly; this book was amazing, I loved the new take on this aspect. Instead of seeing the characters we all know and love travel through time yet again for another mission, we see one get kidnapped (not gonna name, cause spoilers.) and see the others try and rescue said person. The whole story kept me qu

In this second to last book of the missing series, Jonah finally found out his original identity. At first, Jonah was shell-shocked when he found out his identity because he thought he would be another 'famous' missing child from history, but he wasn't. Yes, he was a missing child, but no he wasn't famous. Jonah couldn't really accept that, but he was too busy trying to save all his friends and family that were endangered because of Gary and Hodge to keep thinking over why. He had to save all th ...more

I enjoyed this book because it has many things within the story that surprises you. I thought this was very well written.
Ally Christensen
This book was good, however it is not as good as the other books in the series because I was disappointed in the plot. All the books in the series have been leading up to find out who Jonas was in history, in this book, Haddix gave us clues wanting us to believe that he is Charles Lindbergh's son, but when Gary and Hodge reveal his true identity, it is just disappointing and kind of a letdown. Yet, for the same reason that I don't like this book, it also goes for why I like it because since it w ...more
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

This final book in the series wraps up the events, but time travel can be so confusing. We also have a slightly different cast of characters in this story. The main characters are Jonah, JB, Angela, and Charles Lindbergh, with Gary & Hodge making appearances as well as Jonah's parents (in a slightly different way than you might expect).

We do finally found out which famous child Jonah is from the past, and there's also a surprising character at the end of the story. Katherine, Jonah's sister, doe

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

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

First sentence: Jonah saw the man before the man saw him.

Revealed is the seventh book in the Missing series by Margaret Peterson Haddix. The books usually feature a brother-sister team of Jonah and Katherine Skidmore. These two have been time-traveling essentially since book one with various other "missing" children from history. These children, more often than not, have all grown up in the same neighborhood/community. Chip, for example, is one of Jonah's best friends and Katherine's boyfriend.

This book was a complete and utter disappointment. I had been following this series all throughout elementary and middle school, owned every copy and bugged the librarian to buy the ones I could not get a hold of to check out. I was enthralled by this fantastical world with a unique concept, relatable characters, fast passed action and a fascinating storyline. I was always sitting at the edge of my seat waiting for the next installment. But then Revealed came out... and I could only sit in horro ...more

I would recommend this book, especially to anyone who is curious about what time travel and the future might look like. However, I think the other six books in the series were much better than this one because they involved more of the missing children from history, but Jonah’s own identity needed to be solved too and I guess the author needed an entire book to do that. Also, the lack of Katherine, Jonah’s sister and the second main character in the series, in this book greatly hurt the plot. No ...more

I'm really liking the historical figures and situations that the author has chosen to center her stories around. This one in particular really shook America to it's core and the mystery surrounding it is so intriguing to me...

On a side note; the more I read of the series the more I feel that Katherine would have been a better main character than Jonah. There, I said it. Nothing against Jonah, it just s

Lots of stuff going on. It’s mostly just a jumbled mess full of teen angst and no real plot. As in the other books it’s from Jonah’s POV, but he spends most of his time worried about what to do and not doing anything but run around confused and take up pages.

The main idea of this becomes a kid’s worst nightmare when Jonah’s parents become his age, but with the same memories. At the same time Katherine and all the other kids disappear, JB and Angela get de-aged. But the question Jonah is most in

There were many confusing things in this book. For me, about half of it was explained in the end. The rest, I may have missed the explanation.
It was OK. It felt like there was more at stake, more risk. I like how they sorta brought everything back full circle. This felt like the last book. But then, I read the sneak peek of the next book. Now, I really want to read it! I want to learn more about *spoiler spoiler spoiler spoiler spoiler * Jordan.

UGH this one hurt. Jonah is so sweet and adorable and I literally love him so much. He was just so vulnerable and emotional in this and i loved seeing that part of him. At first I was like ugh I miss katherine but like he was feeling the same way and like??? So pure. So beautiful. We need more guys like Jonah Skidmore.
Okay but this also felt very much like a conclusion to the series??? obv the end was intense but the whole thing just seemed so final so i’m excited yet scared to read the next bo
