Fascinating fictional retelling of the events that led to the tragedy of the Titanic, based on documents from the National Archives.

A Belfast boy is terrified of getting a job in the dockyard where the Titanic is being built, and where his father died. Instead he gets a job on the ship, where he thinks his biggest problem is his rivalry with a fellow ship's boy who calls him a coward. On the night the unsinkable ship meets the iceberg, he must find out how brave he really is.

It's a way in for the young as to what really happened, and is a decent race-against time action story, with some pleasant messages easily and lightly given to its target audience.
