Overview

From bestselling author Gordon Korman, a second heart-stopping adventure aboard the unluckiest ship of all. The Titanic has hit the high seas--and moves steadily toward its doom. Within the luxury of the cabins and the dark underbelly of the ship, mysteries unfold--a secret killer who may be on board, a legacy that may be jeopardized, and a vital truth that will soon be revealed. For Paddy, Sophie, Juliana, and Alfie, life on the Titanic brings both hiding and seeking, as their lives become irrevocably intertwined. And then, of course, an iceberg appears, and the stage is set for the final scene.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Veronica Bartles
Paddy has been discovered as a stowaway, and he is running out of places to hide from the crew. If Paddy's connections to Alfie are discovered, both Alfie and his father may lose their jobs. Juliana learns that her father's business dealings in America might mean disaster for her personally. Sophie attempts to befriend a grouchy old crippled man who hides a dangerous secret. In this second book of the "Titanic" series, the lives of these four children draw closer together, as they realize that friendship and trust do not always follow the set rules of "proper society." Korman weaves a fascinating tale into the fabric of a well-known historical event. He skillfully knits together the fictional accounts of four unlikely friends with tidbits of true history, showing the human side of the true Titanic story and spurring a desire to learn more about the Titanic and her ill-fated maiden voyage. As the 100th anniversary of the Titanic approaches, this book is a perfect lead-in for learning about the tragedy. Reviewer: Veronica Bartles
