I finally got to read this book! I had it sitting around and since summer started I got to read it. I can tell you right now, it made me want to break into tears. As you may know, the day the Titanic went down was a sad, sad day. The girl in this book goes through loss and shock. If you were on a big boat that was said to never sink and it went down, you'd be more that shocked. Only some men survived the sinking of the Titanic! Sadly, many woman became widowed. I do hope more people find this book and read it. It points out history making it a great book for any age and shows that things arn't always how people say they are.
