Program research can really take over a girl's life, and in that vein I've read/paged through/skimmed approximately fifteen Titanic books since January 2012. This one, though, is definitely the best I've read for the age group. Filled with facts, figures, pictures, primary source material, and a narrative that reads like an adventure novel, this book was fabulous and impossible to put down. It was fascinating to read about the survivors I've come to know from other research in their own words. This book also contains an extensive bibliography, timeline, statistics, suggested websites, questions for budding researchers, and transcripts of testimony from both the British and American inquiries. Titaniacs, if you haven't read this one, read it. Librarians, if you think you don't need another Titanic book, think again--you need this one.
