    This book inspires me. The monster Hurricane Katrina is so deeply sad that I had to read the whole book in one day because I couldn't take my eyes off the pages. The words are amazing, the actions are wonderful. Lauren Tarshis is an amazing author, I love all the I Survived books. If you have not...

    Unsinkable was NOT a good start to the Titanic series. It's very, very bland and slow. The plot moves like molasses. I was pretty disappointed, as I had read Gordon Korman's Chasing the Falconers series, and I loved it, so I expected this book to be just as good. The characters don't have anythin...
