About the Book
It’s 1915 and the Lusitania is set to sail from New York on its 202nd Atlantic crossing. But this will be a dangerous trip, as German U-boats lurk beneath the surface. Will you:
  • Experience the journey as an American boy traveling in second class to England with his family?
  • Travel first class as a young woman on her honeymoon?
  • Work as an American sailor hired to serve on the ship? 
Everything in this book happened to real people. And YOU CHOOSE what you do next. The choices you make could lead you to opportunity, to adventure, or even to death.

My Take on the Book

This book is what I would call a "choose your own adventure" story. However while enjoying reading the book and choosing your various paths you can take as a character, the reader will learn historical facts about this ship and its place in world events.

The book is centered around three characters. So the reader chooses a character and after a page or two of the story, the reader chooses one of two paths. There are 42 paths to choose from and 23 different endings. I am sure you can see how this book can be read many times.

The author did a very good job giving the reader facts to assist in understanding the characters. The book was exciting to read and you could feel the emotion of the characters as they each went through the events on board the sinking ship.

At the end of the book are additional facts about how the sinking of the Lusitania eventually brought the United States into World War I.

If your child likes to read adventure books, I think this will be a good choice for a boy or girl.
