Teen Book Review

Titanic: The Long Night by Diane Hoh

Rating 4

Reviewed by Elizabeth, grade 10

This incredible love story is made even more incredible by the fact that it takes place aboard the Titanic.  If you remember your history lessons, you'll remember what happeneed to this "unsinkable" ship.  Elizabeth Farr thought she had problems, and that was before her ship hit an iceberg.  She's now terrified for her life, and the lives of her loved ones.

As the characters of this book were one-by-one introduced, I was filled with dread, and kept asking:  With only seven hundred of the twenty-two hundred passengers surviving, who will escape with their life?
