I give this book 5 stars. I give this book 5 stars because for me it felt really intriguing and interesting. It was really intriguing because I never knew what happened and how the people felt about the ship. It was interesting because I never knew much about the Titanic. Another thing I liked about this book was that it was a comic book. Comic books are my favorite because there are less words and I don't like to visualize the picture. I would rather see the picture. This book had combined pictures and it was informational. This was a good book. - Review by reader age 12
