I'm reading Katherine Paterson's The Great Gilly Hopkins for the first time. It's the "Revised paperback edition, 2015" of a book copyrighted in 1978, according to the copyright page. Based on the content of the book, I'm guessing some or all of those revisions may be bowdlerizations of the word "nigger". But I wonder whether anyone can supply a complete list of the revisions.
