      It was very interesting. The kid almost got killed and lost his sister. Then, they found each other and climbed a ladder.

        I think you should read this book because it tells you some things you can learn from the Titanic. Also it as lots of action and sadness to in the story. My favorite part was when plates of roast beef veal and ham pie carrots sweet as candy and mysterious dessert called meringue pudding. I think you would really enjoy this book I hoped you liked this review. Tell me if you like this book.

              Think you should read this book because it really made me feel like I was actually in the ship. I got to know a lot about the ship as well. I thought it was sad when the Titanic sank. So I think you should read this book

                Do you like books with lots of action and drama. I read a book called I survived the sinking of the titanic It had lots of action and drama. Gorge the character was on the titanic with his sister Phobie and aunt daisy. One night gorge whet to look for a mummy that was on board. But a scar faced man took the knife from him and opened the casket BONK something fell on the scar faced man so gorge ran away. When gorge got to his room Phobie wasn't there! SO him and aunt daisy had to find her. You should read it. This reminds me of when I was little and went on a cruse. I thought it was going to sink but it didn't. I liked this book because it was dramatic and existing. I also liked it because it made me fell like I was there. My favorite part was when gorge found his sister. I recommend this book to 2 3 4 and 5th graders. It will be a little hard for 2ont graders. It will be a little easy for 5th graders. It should be just right for 3 and 4rth graders though. Please read this book.
