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. ( )

Titanic: Voices from the Disaster is a very good nonfiction book giving a voice to survivors of the Titanic disaster. Most accounts are very personal and filled with emotion. The appendix section at the back of the book sums up lots of information that is presented within the text. ( )

Book was a copy received via GoodReads for a review. Thanks!

This is a superb book to introduce young readers to all aspects of the Titanic disaster. It's written in a very readable style, introducing late elementary school and middle school children to the individuals in the disaster in a way that brings them to life.

And yet this book has a ton of information from the sequence of events that happened to mini biographies on the parties involved to data tables with disaster statistics and timetables. I was pretty impressed with the amount of information provided and the broad scope of that same information.

If you've got a young reader in your life and you're looking to introduce them to this fascinating historical event, definitely give this book a look. They'll enjoy the reading of it and learn stuff, too. ( )
