"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 the Titanic. And the farther they get from shore, the more the danger looms." (publisher).… (lisätietoja)

I am fascinated with all things Titanic, so i was excited when I discovered this book. Not bothering with the blurb, everyone knows how a story about the Titanic is going to end, I was surprised that "Unsinkable" was written for younger teens.

The book focuses on four teens aboard the luxury steamship. From different socio economic backgrounds and various parts of the world, Paddy, Alfie, Juliana and Sophie, become acquainted through unexpected circumstances. Each of them were very likeable but they had the own issues and because of their varying statuses, the reader is given a wonderful insight into life aboard the Titanic from the boiler rooms to the grand staircase and everything in between. While I enjoyed each of the teens' stories, Paddy's was definitely the one that had the most excitement and adventure as he tried to avoid being discovered as a stowaway.

It is obvious the series is just beginning because the four teens only know each other fleetingly at the moment, so I am expecting their friendship to grow and develop in the subsequent books.

I intended to read something totally different after I finished "Unsinkable", but because the novel ended when Jack Phillips, the senior wireless operator, handed Captain Smith the message about the ice ahead and he placed it unread in his pocket, I decided to set the book aside and continue with the drama and sense of doom surrounding the Titanic and its passengers and crew members. A great start to a new series. ( )

My third graders are really enthusiastic about Gordon Korman’s books, so when I found this historical fiction novel at Savers, I was tempted to see just what it was all about. The author does a superb job of weaving factual information about the Titanic into the story and describing the majestic ship, the Titanic, as the backdrop for the intrigue that occurs. The story centers around four young passengers aboard the ocean liner, as Paddy, a stowaway, tries to elude a couple of mean gangsters that are hot on his trail. While on board, he meets Alfie, an underage steward, who seeks employment to be near his father working in the bowels of the ship. The boys encounter Sophie, whose mother is a women’s suffrage activist, as they are extradited to return to America by the after being arrested. And then they meet Julie, whose aristocratic life of privilege is so unlike their own.
Because this book is the first of a trilogy, I was disappointed to find that a complete resolution to the gangster problem is not achieved by the end of the novel, and one must read books two and three in order to learn about Paddy’s fate, as well as the rest of the passengers aboard this ‘unsinkable’ ship.

Really good. It shows a decent array of perspectives about the culture and climate of the time and a nice range of different classes of passengers. I could really do without the Jack the Ripper subplot, but whatever. ( )

Recommended Ages: Gr. 4-7

Plot Summary: Four different kids end up on the Titanic, although none of them expected to. Paddy, who lives on the streets, stole money from a rich gangster. Gilhooley kills his friend Daniel but Paddy escapes onto the ship. Unfortunately, Gilhooley is also on the Titanic.

Alfie's mother left him all alone and with no money. With no other hope, he tracks down his father, who he doesn't know very well because he's been at sea for much of Alfie's life. John will be working on the Titanic and out of desperation for somewhere to belong, Alfie lies about his age and gets a job on the Titanic as well.

Sophie is traveling with her mom as she protests for women's rights. In England, her mom gets arrested, which is no surprise. But Sophie also gets arrested. They are forced out of England and end up on the Titanic. Sophie knows her mom is crazy, but when she sees some woman waving like mad, she realizes another girl on the Titanic also has a crazy mother. Will they become friends?

Juliana's father loves adventure and surprises her with a trip on the Titanic. She's excited to be away from her mother, but her dad is a little crazy too. She knows a lot because her father is wealthy. Will she think she's too good to be friends with people who don't have as much money?

When Alfie and Paddy find out there is a murderer on board the Titanic, will they be able to solve the mystery before someone is killed?

Recurring Themes: Titanic, survival, friendship, family, child labor, murder, mystery, socioeconomic status

Controversial Issues: none (murder mystery)

Personal Thoughts: As soon as I realized this book was a murder mystery two-thirds of the way through I had to stop reading it at night before bed. This action packed book is clearly part of a trilogy so have all three parts readily available. The characters are fairly well developed but some are more memorable than others. Overall, great action/adventure.

Genre: mystery, action/adventure

Pacing: fast, but murder isn't introduced until 2/3 of the way through
Characters: well developed for having so many characters and storylines
