Titanic Crossing had a great mix of fact and fiction. I enjoyed reading it a lot! I'm not sure about the author's descriptions of the ship itself, they seemed a bit off (Now that I've read Titanic Sinks!), but that might just be me, right? :P

I really did like this book- A LOT! The author added great characters, and Albert Trask was a fun main character, although his little sister, Virginia (Ginny, age 6), can be especially irritating at times. Claybourne, Albert's uncle, was a bit irritating too, but was a great character. Emily Brewer, was a good add to the story, but seemed a bit stuck up at times, which might or might not've been the author's goal. I still enjoyed having someone Albert's age in the story (she's 12 and a half or so)….and besides they become good friends, which is nice. The parts surrounding the sinking of the Titanic were great, but the actually sinking or the hours waiting for the Carpathia are not told, probably because Barbara Williams didn't want it to be too much for younger readers, which was fine, I actually enjoyed it.

It's also cool that Barbara Williams based Albert's character on a real boy whom she'd read and article about. The boy wasn't permitted entrance to a lifeboat because he was considered a man.

I actually really like this book, and have read it at least three times…Barbara Williams did a great job with this novel. It's an easy read, enjoyable, well-written…I would recommend!!!! It's a great book. I love it!

Great Book!!

was so easy to order. came quick and fast no hassels. I found this much easier then going to the libary, paying overdue fees when not returned on time, and now I have the book for other children in the house to read.

Well,it's a very good book! I cried when Virginia's mother (mummy,thats what she calls her),and her uncle had died(whan they said that they died). It was a ineresting story because it's so long,and it was challinging to me,but I read it! It was also a good story because it had a lot of great detail in the story and a very interesting plot. It is about Albert a person who's been reading about the Titanic in England. Then he had a once-of-a-lifetime chance to go on the Titanic to America.Everybody said that she was unsinkable.But in 4 days after she left port in England,she hits an lceburg and starts to sink. He was to make choices that could save his life. This is whats it says on the back cover on the book: "It was a ship bigger and better than anything the world had ever seen. Albert had been reading about the ocean liner while he was staying in England. And now he had the once-of-the-lifetime chance the sail aboard the Titanic. It was the ship that would take him back home to America. Albert believed what he'd read. That this ship was the saftest vessel on the sea: Nothing could sink her. Untill the Titanic hits an iceburg,and does began to sink. Now Albert is faced with decisions he's never had to make before. Grownup decisions.Dicisions that might save his life..." -Scholatic I think that this is the greatest chapter book on the Titanic of all time. Even more great than the Dear America created.Even it is was a diary that Dear America made,it was still be not be better than Titanic Crossing.(Well the Dear America people who made the Titanic one was a diary. Nota real one, but a fake one.) And one more thing,Titanic Crossing and the Dear America Titanic is both owned by Scholastic.

I think that over all it was a good book but it really wasn't for me. I'm just not into books like this but it was good for a book. I'm not a strong reader but I have read SOS Titanic and it was a really good book over all.

The book starts out with Albert and his uncle Claybourne and his mom and ginny Alberts little sister are going to America again. They are living England to go to the states. Albert's mom gave them money to go on the ship the "unsinkable ship" the Titanic. They are going in second class on the wonderful ship.

Ginny said that she has appendicitis. Every time she doesn't get her way she holds her side and complains that it hurts. Albert notices that she is holding the wrong side of her stomach and he points it out to his mom and she just tells him that there is a very small chance that it can start on that side at least that is what the doctor told them. Albert and Ginny's dad died from appendicitis.

They are on there way to the states on the unsinkable ship so the think. All of the sudden they hit something really hard. Albert notices that it is an iceberg. The crew starts playing a really mellow song and Albert know's that the ship is going to sink.

My opinion on this book that it is a good book but it just wasnt for me. So you should read this book .

This summary is about a book called Titanic Crossing, which was written by Barbara Williams. This is the day the world would never forget. When Titanic sank into the ice water of the Atlantic because an iceberg hit the right frontal area of the Titanic. Where it was headed towards America when it sank.

The main character, Albert is sort of an outgoing person who wants to be an architect. He has a little sister named Virginia who bugs him a lot.

The problem Albert has to face is that he has accidentally locked his sister in their room and has to get her to the top of the deck to survive.

So that his sister wouldn't worry he told her they were just playing a game. He was able to get his sister to safety. Albert jumped off the boat and fell in the water and another life boat saved him.

I'd say this was a good book because somewhere at the end it made me want to cry. I would recommend this book. If anyone wants to learn another side of how the Titanic sank than from the movie version read this book.
