Jennifer A. Nielson has done it again. 

This time we follow the journey of a stowaway on the Titanic, which means we know the ending from the beginning, which kept me in suspense the whole time. 

Every time a new character was introduced on the page I wondered, "Will they be alive at the end of the book or not?" knowing that it was unlikely that everyone would survive. 

As always, Ms. Nielson is impeccable with her research and weaves in the details of that fateful night without coming across like a boring history lecture. 

I can always trust Ms. Nielson to write complex characters with heart that I can relate to. 

So many factors went into that failed sailing. 

If you want to learn about the Titanic in an engaging way, this is the right book. Excellent for both teens and adults. 

I recommend the audiobook. 


As disaster looms on the horizon, a young stowaway onboard the Titanic will need all her courage and wits to stay alive. A thrilling tale from New York Times bestselling author Jennifer A. Nielsen!

Hazel Rothbury is traveling all alone from her home in England aboard the celebrated ship Titanic. Following the untimely death of her father, Hazel’s mother is sending her to the US to work in a factory, so that she might send money back home to help her family make ends meet.

But Hazel harbors a secret dream: She wants to be a journalist, and she just knows that if she can write and sell a story about the Titanic's maiden voyage, she could earn enough money to support her family and not have to go to a sweatshop. When Hazel discovers that mother didn’t send her with enough money for a ticket, she decides she must stow away onboard the storied ship.

With the help of a porter named Charlie and a sweet first-class passenger named Sylvia, Hazel explores the opulent ship in secret, but a haunting mystery quickly finds her. The danger only intensifies when calamity strikes, and readers will be caught up in the terror and suspense alongside Hazel as she fights to save her friends and herself.

Bestselling author Jennifer A. Nielsen weaves an extraordinary tapestry of survival and disaster in this magnificent thriller.
