This book is a blend of fact and fiction - dramatic. Albert had a once-in-a-lifetime chance to sail aboard the Titanic. He believed what he'd read - that this ship was the safest vessel on the sea: Nothing could sink her. Until the Titanic hits an iceberg, and does begin to sink. He is faced with decisions he never had to make before. (From back cover.)

Good book. Read in 1 day. Story about a 13 year old boy and his family aboard the Titanic.
By Scholastic. Engrossing.. even young children are fascinated by this tale. An entertaining blend of fact and fiction...dramatic...
A very good book, but it left me wanting more. It was very well done, Barbara Williams is a very good author. But this book didn't satify me.
