The story centers around four young passengers aboard the ocean liner, as Paddy, a stowaway, tries to elude a couple of mean gangsters that are hot on his trail. While on board, he meets Alfie, an underage steward, who seeks employment to be near his father working in the bowels of the ship. The boys encounter Sophie, whose mother is a women's suffrage activist, as they are extradited to return to America by the after being arrested.
And then they meet Julie, whose aristocratic life of privilege is so unlike their own.
Because this book is the first of a trilogy, I was disappointed to find that a complete resolution to the gangster problem is not achieved by the end of the novel, and one must read books two and three in order to learn about Paddy's fate, as well as the rest of the passengers aboard this 'unsinkable' ship.

The lives of these four passengers will be forever linked with the fate of Titanic. And the farther they get from shore, the more the danger looms. Gordon Korman wrote his first book when he was just fourteen years old. Gordon lives with his family on Long Island. They stood four deep on the afterdeck of the Carpathia , chilled to the bone, staring out at nothing.
Dark water, light swells-no evidence that barely seven hours before, the largest and most magnificent ship the world had ever seen had sailed there in all her glory. The truth was nearly impossible to believe: The RMS Titanic lay at the bottom of the sea, along with everyone who sailed in her, save the souls rescued and now aboard the Carpathia. A flash of color among the endless waves.
A survivor? And then the swell turned over the item that stirred their frozen hearts with momentary hope. I read all three in one sitting once book 1 arrived. It's a good series, excellent for kids in grade 7 and up and parents will like it too. October 12, - Published on Amazon.
A nice twist on the historical story from the perspective of teens on the voyage. Well written enough for adults to enjoy too.
The details seem factual within my knowledge base and care is taken to keep characters from being two dimensional. The story is interesting, a good mystery. Be sure to check out parts 2 and 3. May 23, - Published on Amazon.
We needed entertainment on a long trip. This more than sufficed! December 28, - Published on Amazon. My 8 year old read this for a book report. I put it on my Kindle in case she accidentally left the book at home while we were out. She and I both read it and agree that it's a good book.
