The ultimate action and 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 the Titanic. And the farther they get from shore, the more the danger looms...

Gordon Korman wrote his first novel, This Can't Be Happening at Macdonald Hall!, when he was only 12 years old. To date Gordon has written 70 middle-grade and YA novels, including two titles in the #1 New York Times bestselling series The 39 Clues. Gordon lives in Great Neck, New York.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nephew loved this book I remember reading Gordon Korman books when I was a kid so when I needed a birthday gift for my 9 year old nephew I looked for something by Gordon Korman. I was happily surprised to find this series because my nephew is a Titanic fan. He loved the book and couldn't put it down. I will be buying him the other books from the series as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing When I got it in grade 7, I stayed up until 10:30 (which was really late for me at that time) to finish the book. It was very well-written, as you see the story from four very different perspectives. As the book progresses, you just falls in love with the characters and you are screaming internally when they find themselves in a possibly dangerous situation. I recommand this to pre and early teens, as it does kind of lose its charm when you read it over again at the age of 17.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Read!!! A good book to read if you want something a bit easy to read (this is coming from a 15 year old). The characters are all very relatable and reading the book will give you more depth on the time of the Titanic, the place, and the Titanic itself. I will defiantly start reading the second and then the third book because I am now hooked on the Titanic series.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Great Read Now here is a cute little book, it is the first book of a three book series, that has a story within a story in it. The first part of the story takes place on the most famous ship in the world, the Titanic, which hits an iceberg and then sinks, in April of 1912. The second part of the story, deals with the lives of four passengers, a stowaway, a daugther and her mother who have been delivered to the ship after being arrested, a rich girl and her eccentric father who can barley hide his madness, and a under age boy who is working on the ship that has a secret or two that could get him kicked off the ship immediately, will be forever linked with the fate of Titanic, and the farther they get from shore, the more the danger looms. I enjoyed this book and can not wait to start reading book two too see what happens next.

Read from the Book

From Titanic Book One: UnsinkableRMS CARPATHIAMonday, April 15, 1912, 9:30 A.M.They stood four deep on the afterdeck of the Carpathia, chilled to the bone, staring out at nothing. Dark water, light swells-no evidence that barely seven hours before, the largest and most magnificent ship the world had ever seen had sailed there in all her glory. The truth was nearly impossible to believe: The RMS Titanic lay at the bottom of the sea, along with everyone who sailed in her, save the 706 souls rescued and now aboard the Carpathia."Look!"The cry energized the exhausted throng. A flash of color among the endless waves.A survivor?And then the swell turned over the item that stirred their frozen hearts with momentary hope. A deck chair. Nothing more.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Gordon Korman's Titanic series:"Though best known and loved for his humorous books, Korman has proven here, as he has with the other adventure series he's penned, that he is far from a one-trick pony." - Quill & Quire"[Korman] knows how to spin a lively and engaging tale. Hanging it on an already fascinating, albeit tragic, slice of history means it wins on all levels: a thrilling account of a heart-stopping disaster, and a set of fictional characters seamlessly intertwined with real life." - The Montreal Gazette"Korman manages to tell the story of the Titanic smoothly while also introducing other elements of the early twentieth century...Altogether an enjoyable read that makes this tragic story come alive with personal narratives." - Resource Links"Highly Recommended" - Canadian Review of Materials
