{My thoughts} – George, his younger sister and his Aunt get to experience the trip of a life time on board the Titanic. George is a curious boy that seems to enjoy exploring his surroundings and getting into lots of mischief. His sister is the complete opposite and is always trying to keep him out of trouble.

One night when George is exploring the ship hits an iceberg. He barely makes it up to his quarters before he learns that they will need to get up to the top deck.

When he and his Aunt discover his sister is missing, he comes to the conclusion that she must have followed him. They end up going and looking for her and get stranded in the bottom of the shop with those that are beneath their social class.

George eventually figures out a way to the top deck and they are safely shipped onto row boats. George however, because of his age is forced to stay behind on the sinking ship. His Aunt and sister head off to safety away from the sinking ship.

It isn’t until sometime later, once George is off the sinking ship, that he starts to piece all the events together. The one thing that he knows for certain is that he’s survived the sinking of the Titanic.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
