April 14, 1912 Titanic hits the iceberg seeing not only her fate, but assuring her place in history. In the one hundred years since, the imagination of the world has been captured by this most famous of Prisoners, held in the deepest part of the Northern Atlantic Ocean. We are fascinated by the sheer size of the ship and the depth of the tragedy. We focus on the disaster, but all too often, we forget the human side of the tragedy. So many books have been written on the Titanic, but this one is different in the way that it treats the disaster from a human perspective. Each event is told from the perspective of a person who was actually on the ill-fated ship. I also enjoyed the online references throughout the book and the way it invites young readers to go beyond the book and inquire further into the historic catastrophe.
