Quite a good version of the Titanic story, especially for younger people who are not familiar with the history (although after the film I guess most people know it). However the book contains nothing new or startling; not necessarily a bad thing, but for those of us well familiar with the tale it makes for fairly stock standard reading. However I did enjoy the writer's style of alternating chapters, relating the tale by brother and sister, with the sister's version in first person and brother's in third person.
For me, as an adult, 3 stars. For a younger YA, probably 4 stars.
