The Revealers may well be the most-used novel in American middle schools today. These might be some reasons:
It deals realistically with bullying, a huge and urgent issue — but it doesn’t preach. Its characters are true to life, as are its middle-school intensities, confusions, and cruelties. It has humor! Its story connects with young adults from all backgrounds, at all reading levels ... and it keeps you reading to the last page.
Far more than 1,000 middle schools, across the U.S. and internationally, have done reading-and-discussion projects with The Revealers — many of them “One School, One Book” initiatives. For over a decade, this website has collected the best resources those schools have generated: briefings on model projects, unit study plans, discussion questions, videos, a presentation on results, a teacher’s guide — and much more.
