Holy crap. I have so much love for this book it's quite possibly bordering on unhealthy. The love is not just for the book's topic (MAJOR love) but for the writing. It's probably because I hardly read middle grade books but TIME VOYAGE is written so amazingly that I can't form thoughts beyond ill-conceived adjectives. There is no pandering to the reader whatsoever, no talking down, no kiddie feel. Yeah, it's written in a very precise way. Absolutely no fat (and as a result very little detail or ...more

Time Voyage is the first in a set of 4 books about a couple of modern-day 14-year-old kids who are whisked back through time to experience the Titanic's first -- and only -- voyage.

After reading book 1, I'm most definitely "on board" with the plot Brezenoff created! He has interwoven the important facts of the RMS Titanic into a relatable story that kids today will understand... and they'll even enjoy learning about history this way. In a similar way to the popular Magic Tree House series, two

I am a huge Titanic fan. When I saw these books I thought why not? They could be fun quick reads? And they were! First of all, the illustrations in this book are great! In this book Tucker and Maya are searching through Titanic artifacts and by accident wind up back in 1912. Tucker and Maya want to warn everyone about the Titanic's fatal maiden voyage.
This book is part of a series. This series is called Return to Titanic. There are four books in this series: 1st- Time Voyage, 2nd- Stowaways,

This is the first book in the series “Return to Titanic” and the first half of the book can be understood as an introduction to the whole series. It might be a bit slow if you compare it with the second half, but it is important to understand what leads the kids to travel back in time and how it happens.

Although there is not much character development, this doesn’t mean there aren’t any round characters.

We can see how much the situation is affecting Tucker and Maya. It is understandable. When th

I was really looking forward to this book. Time travel and the Titanic, what's not to love?

Unfortunately, this book. It was incredibly short - not a bad thing for elementary grades - but it was so obviously part of a series - it didn't even have a complete story. It's just chapters of a larger work, one that continues in the next book. In order to have the complete story and find out what happens to the main characters, you are forced to purchase all the books in the series. I despise this kind

After touching a magical ticket Maya and Tucker are Transferred back in time. Knowing the Titanic will sink they try to warn the Kearney family but will they listen?

The length of this book really hurt it. Two books needed to be joined or something cause it was way too short and I felt like nothing happened. I also didn't like the two main charters I just found them both annoying. Tucker more so then Maya seriously how many times do you have to b

A quick easy read - series of four books. My 8 year old and I tore through them on a weekend.

There was one photo that was slightly factually incorrect, but I'll overlook it. Although Titanic had 4 funnels only 3 were operational, so the photo where it shows all 4 funnels with smoke coming out of them is not accurate.

Nitpicky really, I know :)

Tucker and Maya have to spend a boring day in his mother's museum helping to set up a Titanic exhibit. Neither of them are all that interested even though an ancestor of Tucker's was on the ship. When the two are looking at artifacts, they both pick up a ticket... and are sent back in time to the Titanic! They try to stop Tucker's ancestor from getting on but are unsuccessful, so board themselves. Will they be able to make any changes in the outcome of this epic disaster? Book one of a series.

Tucker dreads the thought of spending his Spring Break cataloging things for his mom, a museum curator. At least he gets to endure the boredom with his best friend Maya. But things become anything but boring when he and Maya find a boarding ticket that transports them back in time to Queenston. Tucker and Maya then go from being bored to boarding a tender that will take them to the Titanic's historical voyage!

Thank you Capstone for the opportunity to read this e-galley! I not only look forward

This book is part of a series. This series is called Return to Titanic. There are four books in this series: 1st- Time Voyage, 2nd- Stowaways, 3rd- An Unsinkable Ship, and 4th- Overboard. These books are quick reads that are fun.
My favorite part about these books were the historical facts at the end.
Goodreads made a mistake!

A good start to a high-low series for middle grades. It has enough suspense and excitement to keep students reading. I'm looking forward to reading the next installment.

Time Voyage, by Steve Brezenoff, was an easy science fiction book. It is the first book out of a four book set. You have to read the next book so you know what happens to Tucker and Maya. Tucker and Maya time travel from 2012 to 1912. They end up in Ireland where people are getting ready to get on the Titanic. I like to read books about the Titantic so I liked this book. I would recommend it to anyone in third or above that likes to learn about the Titanic.

In this fourth installment of the series, Tucker and Maya have to travel back to the titanic one more time to help recue Liam. The story has everything a good story needs: adventure, friendship, historical aspects, and time travel! I will definitely be purchasing the first three books of the series!

This first book in the “Return to Titanic” series was a pleasant surprise. The premise is simple (two kids accidentally go back in time and end up on the Titanic), but the presentation is fairly cool, with interesting illustrations, maps, and pseudo-primary source-like documents included throughout. The readability of this title, combined with the high interest subject, make it accessible to a wide array of students.

This one is hard for me to rate because it is just the beginning of Tucker & Maya's adventures. This first book ends so quickly, only showing us the premise of the series. It does build some suspense which makes you want to read the next book.

My students love Titanic books and this one is perfect for my reluctant readers, but I will not purchase it until the whole series is out.

Two teens, spending a dull day helping out with a Titanic exhibit, find themselves transported back to the pier just as the Titanic is getting ready to set sail. A fun hi/lo read with realistic characters and an interesting storyline. I am looking forward to reading the next one.
This is the beginning of a series that takes two kids back in time to the sailing of the Titanic. Although it was a bit slow for me (the whole book only introduces the characters and covers the loading of Titanic), I read this with my 8 year old and she really liked it. On to the second!

This was a great book to read with my little 8 year old because it not only was a fun read but it talk about history and for a young kid sometimes that is the best way to learn. The picture is wrong on the book cover on goodreads for Time Voyage.

I don't get the Titanic-craze, but as it seems to be popular I read this to my son. It does throw in a lot of true facts in the course of the story. But, it isn't a complete story; you need to keep reading - which sells more boosk.

I was really looking forward to reading this book but was left a little disappointed. It was really lacking if it was trying to be a historical fiction, and not fantastic enough to be a fantasy novel.

You said you wanted to try some brand new books and this series fits that category. A time travel adventure, I think you'll enjoy this series.

Awesome read. I love reading books about Titanic but this series is really good. Find out what Tucker and Maya have in store for you.
This is the first in a series of four, wonderful short series for younger readers who enjoy history, and traveling back in time.
