Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0679430342, Hardcover)In the 84 years since it sank in the north Atlantic, the Titanic has become a powerful symbol of 19th-century hubris and a generator of multiple myths. Cynthia Bass adds to the store of legends with this engaging tale of a young passenger who, in surviving the disaster in which some 1,500 of his shipmates perished, discovers something steely and enduring in himself. Bass' latest book, with the excitement of a good thriller and the depth of fine history, should find a harbor with Titanic buffs and non-buffs alike.

The Titanic disaster seen through the eyes of a 12-year-old Boston boy who tries to be a man by locking himself in a cabin so he won't be put in the lifeboat along with the women and children. But his plan does not work, and he is glad it didn't too. By the author of Sherman's March.
