Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Keri Collins Lewis
Tucker and Maya have failed twice in their attempts to save their friend Liam aboard the Titanic. They can't explain the situation to Tucker's mom, the museum curator, without revealing they are traveling through time. Consequently, the adventurers are in such trouble they have to spend the day locked in a conference room at the museum. Ingenious Maya doesn't let a locked door stop her, and soon the duo are dismantling a museum case to grab a violin, their key to getting back to the unsinkable ship. When they arrive back on board, they are stunned to find first class passengers, such as John Jacob Astor IV, strolling about as if nothing was wrong. No matter how hard they try, none of the grown-ups believe Tucker's assertions that they have hit an iceberg and they must evacuate the ship. Unwilling to wait for help from the adults, Tucker and Maya race to find Liam, only to be faced with the cruel realities of the class system still in effect at the time: only women and children in first class were allowed aboard the lifeboats, once evacuation procedures began. Under the care of Nurse Violet Jessop, Tucker and Maya board a lifeboat and hope Liam was not left behind. The third book in the "Return to Titanic" series raises the stakes for all of the characters as the fateful night unfolds. Maya's quick thinking and courageous spirit keep the story moving quickly with the occasional surprise. As the life boats are lowered and the band plays on, Brezenoff manages to convey the tragedy of the historic event without losing sight of the book's plot and fictional characters. Historical information about the ship's band is found at the back of the book. Reviewer: Keri Collins Lewis
