After we decided to move to St. Louis in 2002 and were in town to find housing, we visited the Titanic exhibition at the St. Louis Science Center. This non-fiction, level 4 book for young readers not only describes the voyage of the Titanic, the accident that caused it to sink on Apr. 15, 1912, and the rescue of those who survived, but also tells how the author and his crew found and explored the remains of the Titanic 75 years later in 1985 and 1986. Interspersed in Ballard's narrative is the story of the sinking itself, as told through the eyes of a twelve-year-old girl, one of the fortunate survivors. There is a little "propaganda" at the end. Ballard mentions that after his trip, another group went down to the Titanic and brought up many things from the wreck, and he says, "I was very sad when I heard this. The Titanic should be left in peace as a monument to those who lost their lives on that cold, starry night so long ago." Other than this, the book is a fascinating account for children.

i had to read this for school, and it is unexplainably dull and boring. it uses large words that the average young adult can't comprehend and tells only the most important parts of the titanic sinking and the rest is about finding it, mainly which direction a sub went how many miles and the price of damage. a large portion of this book is just numbers, coordinates, and technical terms. i was dissapointed.
