Reviews

"From the immediacy of the opening paragraph, readers enter into the world of the luxurious ship, the Titanic. Details bring that fateful voyage to life. Rather than details out of context, they are effortlessly woven into the narrative. Photos, diagrams, documents, glossary, and bibliography will provide a deep dive for readers. The layout and format also will serve as a model for writing." --Teri S. Lesesne, distinguished professor of library science

"Kelly Milner Halls takes readers on an intimate behind-the-scenes tour of the Titanic. From the conflicts among people tasked to design and build her, to the flaws that lead to her demise, this well-researched history will keep you on the edge of your seat." --Christine Taylor-Butler, award-winning author of children's nonfiction

"Kudos to author Kelly Milner Halls for telling an oft-told story, the wreck of the Titanic, in an engaging and creative way. By teasing out the mysteries around why and how the ship sank, Halls has crafted a gripping nonfiction tale for young readers. Was it cost-cutting on rivets or a coal fire that weakened the hull where the iceberg struck? Was the ship going too fast, or did a thermal inversion caused by warm and cold currents colliding make it hard to see the obstacle? One thing is for sure: young readers with a taste for disaster (and mysteries) will gobble this book right up." --Bruce Hale, author of Clark the Shark

"Secret fires, ping pong balls, and inaccessible binoculars? Kelly Milner Halls covers the story of the Titanic you know with the details you didn't and sets up a first-rate mystery for kids in the process." --Elizabeth Byrd, Publishers Weekly columnist
