        I didn't like this book. It didn't really give me the feeling that other I survived books do. It is about a boy named George. He was coming back from England. He was on the Titanic and he sunk. I cant relate to this book whatsoever.

          The reason why I gave this book a three-star rating is because it didn't give much information about the actual Titanic sinking. It gave more of a fictional story about George surviving the Titanic. He was on the Titanic with his sister, coming back from visiting their Aunt Daisy in England. As the Titanic was sinking everyone screamed while George just stood there.

              In my opinion, I really liked this book. One reason why is because there is a fell for adventure in young George. Another reason why is The last reason why is because it is a little scary and mysterious. My favorite part is when George finds his sister on the RMS Carpathia You might like this book if you like adventure and action. You should read this book because it is fun and it will keep you awake through the whole book.

                I really didn't like this book because it didn't give to much information ,and that the timeline was going pretty fast of the story.

                    I Survived the Sinking of the Titainic is by Lauren Tarshis. George was in a good relashonship with his sister. He was always in truoble, and loved to go on adventures. I think that reader 9-12 years of age would like this book. I liked this book and I think you will too.
