About the Book

These and other young people came from many walks of life. Now, on the night of April 14, 1912, they all face a life-or-death crisis abroad the Titanic. When the unthinkable occurs, can they survive?
My Take on the Book
My daughter has loved the story of the Titanic since she was a little girl. I don't know what it is about the story that intrigues her but she is drawn to it, so when I received this, I knew she would devour the book and I was not mistaken. The nice things about this book is that it is relatable for the audience that it is written for. You really get to know some of the kids that were on the Titanic in a new and interesting way. The book is also written in a way to keep the reader on their toes as they try and see whether the kids will survive or not. This was a great book for the history buff, but also was an enjoyable read in general too!
