Ellen Emerson White: Titanic - An Edwardian girl's diary 1912

Margaret Anne dreams of leaving the orphanage behind, and she can hardly believe her luck when she is chosen to accompany wealth Mrs Carstairs aboard the great Titanic. But when the passengers are woken on a freezing night in April 1912, she finds herself caught up in an unimaginable nightmare...

I had this book at home for a long time, as I got it through a book club once. Now that the Titanic centenary had come around I wanted to see whether this book would be suitable for my son. It wasn't, but I thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt new facts about the Titanic, too.
