I gave up on this book after only a couple of chapters. It's so obvious it's a ripoff of the movie. The characters are almost the same: A young woman from a rich family who is to be married to a nice boring young man in New York, but falls in love with a young penniless artist. The only real difference is that their names are different and there seems to be another little plotline with some of the lower-class passengers.
Daughter enjoyed the book
Young Adult reader - Story about a family aboard the Titanic told from a teenage girl's point of view.
This was a good book. I have the sequal to it somewhere , but i'm not sure where i'll have to find it.
We all know how the story end, but this novel makes the journey to that end compelling and heartfelt.

I really enjoyed the book. Diane Hoh got a few of the details wrong but it doesn't distract from the storyline. Very quick read. I felt myself comparing it to the movie "Titanic" but she did incorporate some real people into her main characters so that was refreshing to see. Recommended if you are a Titanic buff like I am.
This is a novel about the sinking of the Titanic and the long night in the lifeboats for the survivors.
Great book to go with the movie.
