Would you ever stay on a boat that was sinking? The people on the Titanic had to make some decisions. Some people decided to stay on the Titanic, other people decided to hop into a lifeboat. I thought this book was very interesting. There was lots of action. (Example) the largest boat in the world hit an iceberg and started to sink! Some people even jumped of the large boat into the freezing water. There was a 12-year girl named Ruth that was left behind! The lifeboat that her mother and her two brothers were in was too crowded so she had to go in a lifeboat with a lot of strangers that Ruth didn't know. I would give these book 3 stars. I thought there were a lot of BRAVE characters, like Ruth. From this book I learned that you should always do what other people say.
