I enjoyed this book as it follows the vivid true stories of passengers on the fateful voyage of the Titanic. The passengers whose stories are told range from the wealthiest to the poorest. It gives a look at the class separation of the times. This book includes many black and white photographic images of the passengers and the ship--inside and outside. It also includes tables and diagrams with detailed statistics of the ship's construction and cargo which could be useful in studying engineering and physics in a science class. The book also includes details of what might have caused this state of the art unsinkable ship to sink. While there have been many stories told about this disaster, this book paints a picture like none other of what went into the ship's construction and just why it seemed so sophisticated at the time. This would be a great book for middle to high school classrooms to complete cross-curricula studies in history and science. ( )

This book details the events of the sinking of the Titanic, from when it set sail til when it sank to the bottom of the ocean. The book includes many pictures from all over the ship, of passengers, and life vests. The book also includes letters from survivors of the shipwreck. The book is full of facts and details that help to bring the tragedy to life on the page.

This book is about a girl and a boy meeting for the first time on a ship and it was love at first sight. The ship hit a iceberg and it was downhill from that. I recommend this book for jr.high and above. (INFORMATIONAL TEXT) ( )

I know logic dictates that the characters followed in this book survived based on how their accounts were collected, but it would have been nice if that wasn't immediately spelled out in the book. This book described some things I hadn't really read about yet - the specific details about the Marconi operators, the investigation after the accident, more graphic details about people evacuating the ship at the last moments (*as* it was disappearing into the water).

Very well written, although I am not a Titanic enthusiast. Definitely worth the Siberia honor. ( )
