Waiting on Wednesday: Titanic, Book One: Unsinkable by Gordon Korman

Titanic: Unsinkable by Gordon Korman (Published by Scholastic, May 1, 2011)

The ultimate action/adventure trilogy begins, with #1 bestselling author Gordon Korman plunging readers into the heart of the Titanic.

The Titanic is meant to be unsinkable, but as it begins its maiden voyage, there's plenty of danger waiting for four of its young passengers. Paddy is a stowaway, escaping a deadly past. Sophie's mother is delivered to the ship by police - after she and Sophie have been arrested. Juliana's father is an eccentric whose riches can barely hide his madness. And Alfie is hiding a secret that could get him kicked off the ship immediately.

The lives of these four passengers will be forever linked with the fate of Titanic. And the farther they get from shore, the more the danger looms. . . .

Many years ago, back when I read a lot more middle grade books, I really enjoyed the Everest, Island, and Dive trilogies that Gordon Korman wrote. So I was interested to see on Amazon that he has a new trilogy coming out and it is historical fiction, which is my favorite genre. And, I used to be obsessed with the Titanic.

Excellent choice, Rebecca. This sounds like it might be an excellent(and sad) trilogy. Even now I'm wondering which of the four passengers will survive the sinking ship.
