    When I requested this book from my local library, I was looking

    When I requested this book from my local library, I was looking forward to it immensely: a story of Swedish sisters traveling on the Titanic in steerage. I thought it would shed new light on the subject. However, upon reading the first chapter, I already disapproved of young Alfreada's domineering spirit over her sister and mother. As if a girl of her age should boss her family around and jeer at her younger sibling. This displeasing attitude lingered through the entirety of the book, sadly.

    I also didn't enjoy the story as well as I could have because of a few wrong facts and historical inconsistencies concerning the RMS Titanic. 

    Perhaps it is just my preference, but the sinking of the ship (as told in the book) happened alarmingly fast -- I would have hoped to savor a bit more suspense in that part of the story just to bring forth more emotion in the tragic scene.

    Although not a bad thing, the book references to a "tomte" a mythical creature in Swedish culture.

    All in all, this is an "okay" book for children, but I regrettably don't recommend it.
