From bestselling author Gordon Korman, a second heart-stopping adventure aboard the unluckiest ship of all.
The Titanic has hit the high seas--and moves steadily toward its doom. Within the luxury of the cabins and the dark underbelly of the ship, mysteries unfold--a secret killer who may be on board, a legacy that may be jeopardized, and a vital truth that will soon be revealed. For Paddy, Sophie, Juliana, and Alfie, life on the Titanic brings both hiding and seeking, as their lives become irrevocably intertwined. And then, of course, an iceberg appears, and the stage is set for the final scene.
Raves & reviews:
"[Korman provides] easily digestible bits of background on the Titanic, from technical details about its size and decor to the hierarchy of passengers and crew. He artfully weaves these facts into the story without sacrificing the elements of a compelling and exciting adventure tale—namely, a good dose of suspense and non-stop action... Though best known and loved for his humorous books, Korman has proven here, as he has with the other adventure series he's penned, that he is far from a one-trick pony." — Quill & Quire
"[Korman] knows how to spin a lively and engaging tale. Hanging it on an already fascinating, albeit tragic, slice of history means it wins on all levels: a thrilling account of a heart-stopping disaster, and a set of fictional characters seamlessly intertwined with real life." — The Montreal Gazette
"Korman manages to tell the story of the Titanic smoothly while also introducing other elements of the early twentieth century...Altogether an enjoyable read that makes this tragic story come alive with personal narratives." — Resource Links
"Highly Recommended" — Canadian Review of Materials
