Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4–7—These books follow the lives of four teens who become friends and help save one another aboard the sinking ship. Paddy Burns, 14, is a homeless runaway who mourns the death of his best friend. While Daniel was being brutally attacked, Paddy hid in a crate that was slowly lifted onto the Titanic. He had no way off the ship and became a stowaway. Alfie Huggins's mother just left him, so he lies about his age and applies for a steward position on the ship, where his father will be working as an engine stoker. Sophie Bronson is the daughter of a suffragist who turns every situation into a political rally. They have been kicked out of England and given a police escort to the vessel. Juliana Glamm is the daughter of the 17th Earl of Glamford. He has lost all of his family's money gambling and is going to sell his daughter to a wealthy Texas oil tycoon, unbeknownst to her. They are traveling to America to meet their soon-to-be in-laws. Korman mixes facts about the Titanic into this historical adventure. Readers will learn about the building of the ship, why it was supposed to be unsinkable, and the duties of the different crew members. The series focuses on Paddy, who is the best-developed character, and the difficulties of keeping him hidden. Still, readers will find something to relate to in the different relationships the other teens had with their parents. Because one book flows into the next, individual titles do not stand alone.—Erik Carlson, White Plains Public Library, NY

Gr 5–8—The fateful moment has arrived, disaster has struck, and the Titanic is sinking in the dramatic conclusion (Scholastic, 2011) to Gordon Korman's trilogy. The four friends who were brought together by circumstances on the ship now are fighting for survival along with the over 2,000 passengers and crew. They are also caught up in their own struggles as the ship flounders. Sophie's suffragist mother refuses to take a space on a lifeboat based on the "women and children first" edict. Juliana's father doesn't want to leave the card room now that he's on a winning streak. Alfie, as a member of the crew, has to help passengers to safety, but is desperately worried about his father who is a fireman below deck keeping the boilers going. Paddy, the Irish stowaway, knows that there aren't enough lifeboats for everyone, but tries to save as many steerage passengers as possible. As the tragic night progresses, the teens make decisions that have momentous consequences for themselves and for the other passengers. Listeners will be thrilled to have Michael Page return as narrator. With deft characterizations and excellent pacing, he guides listeners through the suspense of the shop's final hours. The clarity and skill of his performance drive the fast-paced narrative to its inevitable climax. With so much historical information woven into the narrative of all three audiobooks, listeners will be encouraged to learn more about the tragedy of the Titanic.—Amanda Raklovits, Champaign Public Library, IL

    This is a great series. I recomend it to all. It is very interesting and makes you feel like you are actually there. It has a lot of subplots and is filled with adventure. Even if you dont like history you will like this amazing book.
