Neither Mother nor Virginia, Albert's spoiled little sister, is very happy about the voyage. But nobody can dampen Albert's enthusiasm about sailing on the biggest, most luxurious ocean liner ever built--not even Emily, a know-it-all girl who thinks the ship doesn't have enough lifeboats. Everyone knows the "Titanic" is unsinkable!

Albert can't wait to see his friends back home, play baseball, and have fun. But when the "Titanic" hits an iceberg and begins to sink, he suddenly faces adult decisions. Can he save Virginia's life---and his own...?

The sinking of the "Titanic," one of the gretest maritime diasters of all time, has fascianted the world for over eighty years. This ripping and fast-paced novel puts human faces on the tragedy as it shows us one boy's viliant passage to manhood.
