Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Keri Collins Lewis
Since Maya and Tucker are supposed to be locked in a conference room, they could not explain how they got soaking wet, and Maya hadn't just lost her cell phone, she had dropped it in the bottom of a lifeboat 100 years in the past. Their parents are furious, and the kids are grounded. In the final installment of the "Return to the Titanic" series, Maya and Tucker have one last chance to save Liam. They overcome the obstacles of being separated from each other and kept away from the museum. They return to the very lifeboat they had jumped out of before, much to the confusion of the passengers and Nurse Jessop. Sadly, they return just in time to watch in horror as the Titanic breaks in pieces and plunges into the Atlantic Ocean's frigid waters. With heroic effort and help from compassionate crew members, Tucker and Maya are able to pull Liam aboard, but his parents are lost. Together, the children endure the aftermath of the event, from their rescue by the R.M.S. Carpathia to their voyage to New York. As Liam meets his aunt for the first time, Tucker finally realizes why Liam seems so familiar and why he felt so driven to rescue him. Brezenoff wraps up his four-volume series with the same deft balancing of fact and fiction that made the story so intriguing from the beginning. Believable characters and fast action allow young readers to maintain the suspension of disbelief required for a time-travel tale. The emotional aspects of the story are handled well without being overdone. As in previous volumes, historical information is included at the end of the book. Reviewer: Keri Collins Lewis
