Publisher: Picture Window Books/ Capstone
Edition: Paperback 32, pages
Received For Review From Net Galley (e-book)

"Commemorate the Titanic's disastrous voyage with this harrowing tale of survival. Follow the true story of young Ruth Elizabeth Becker as her awe of the mighty Titanic turns to horror when she is separated from her mother and siblings. Ages 5-10"

My Thoughts:
I received this for review from NetGalley. Everyone is well aware of the stories told about the Titanic. This particular point of view is from a young girl Ruth Becker. Whom was aboard the luxurious ship with her mother,little brother and sister. Ruth is enchanted by the beauty of the Titanic. She loves dinning room, the cabin she and her family are in and the library as well. Everyone on aboard is lovely towards her.

I love anything on Titanic. This particular story is just amazing. Because this is a real person that was on the ship. Whom had walked around the decks, had eaten in the dinning hall. Something I've only dreamed about. Ruth never told anyone about her time aboard the ship until its 70th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.

For all those Titanic buffs out there should get this book. Yes its for a younger audience. But the pictures are wonderful. At the end of the book is more information on Ruth after her life on the Titanic.

5/5 stars, Happy Reading, Ashley
