"Based on the true survival tale of 12-year-old Ruth Becker, this biographical narrative features technical background on the ship, an effective relaying of the terror, a conclusion lending a historical perspective, and dynamic illustrations." - Book Links

Library Media Connection - Lonna Pierce, School Librarian, MacArthur & Thomas Jefferson Elementary Schools,

"This is a gripping story told through the eyes of 12-year-old Titanic survivor Ruth Becker. The horror of that night is conveyed believably by both the prose and the shocking drama illustrating the ship going down in icy, dark waters. Ruth’s story was not revealed until years later as she could not speak about her ordeal. . . .Ruth is beautifully illuminated to stand out in the lifeboat as her story stands out in the crowd of Titanic 100th anniversary commemoratives. The chronology is cleverly printed on White Star Line stationery, and the afterword, with a photograph of young Ruth Becker, is very moving. . . .this biographical story is ideal as a read-aloud. Recommended." - Library Media Connection
