    1. Of the Titanic story, I always find it most difficult to get through reading or hearing about the crew who sacrificed their lives. What amazes me most is that the band selflessly played through the entire ordeal without rushing to the lifeboats and trying to save themselves. If there was one thing I could do with my musical career, it would be to play in a time like that to try to keep a panicky audience calmThe cooks, the stewards, the entrie crew and of course the captain went down with the sh [...]


    2. 'Robert let out his breath. "You know, you never told me how old you are, Margaret.""I will be fourteen in October," I said. Except that now I was unlikely to see October."For me, it would have been seventeen in August," Robert said.Would have been? God help us.'. After reading this line, I said "I am not going to cry, I will not make a fool of myself, I will not cry in a bus, in front of my friends." But still, I did. I made a fool of myself while my friends were watching me like I was a runawa [...]


    3. This was a pretty good book. The beginning of the book was a little bit boring, but the end got really good. Margaret is a poor girl that is assisting a VERY wealthy woman, so the women takes her on the ship, the Titanic, with her. Margaret feels very fortunate to be on such an amazing ship. I liked the ending, but it was also really sad because she described the whole event of the ship sinking. It made me kind of depressed!! You could just imagine how she felt and how bad the survivors guilt wa [...]


    4. My 9-year-old niece, Allison, is currently obsessed with the Titanic, so I picked this book up for her birthday. I thought I'd give it a quick read before I passed it along to her.I can't say this this was the most engaging book I've ever read. Though the main character, Margaret, was well developed, I didn't necessarily feel like I got to know the other characters very well. That's not too shocking, though, for a book for this age group, and I doubt my niece will care. There was a lot of backgr [...]


    5. Margaret sets sail on the Titanic and I enjoyed every minute of her voyage. Margaret has an excellent sense of humor and the writing was clever and the story moved forward nicely.


    6. As I looked for an Indian version of My Heart will go on,found a band called Tushar lal on YouTube. All I can say it was brilliant, the Indian instruments like the tabla,flute,sitar just blended:)


    7. Although the Titanic's 100th anniversary has come and gone, it's a story that never grows old. As James Cameron's Titanic starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet entrances a new audience now viewing it in theaters in 3D and countless television specials and books continue to be released, the tragic tale of man's arrogance and nature's power still intrigues the public.Margaret Ann Brady is an orphan living at St. Abernathy's Orphanage for Girls in Whitechapel, London, England. Her older broth [...]


    8. I absolutely love the Titanic story. I love the heroic people who stayed on the boat, and who gave up their places on the lifeboats for others, and above all the band who stayed at played throughout the whole sinking. It's such a heartbreaking story, but it makes me realise how amazing people are. So when I read a historical fiction book about the Titanic, I expect a lot. Luckily, I think this book did them justice. Margaret, the writer of the diary, realised how truly amazing these people were. [...]


    9. This has to be one of my favorites from the "Dear America" series! No girl should pass up this lovely book. It is the fictional story of Margaret Ann Brady as she sets sail on the Titanic's first voyage. Amidst all the excitement, no one realizes the devastating fate of that ship. It will be a horrible shock to all.I immensely loved "Voyage on the Great Titanic". It's worthy of being read a second time.


    10. This is another one of those books which I read several years ago, and finally picked up again.Yes, I remembered it perfectly.Yes, I cried again.


    11. (thrifted this book) - ayei'm passionate about history any other historical events, so yes, i loved this book and i'm also glad i bought this (even though it was merely because of the price tag). loved the vintage cover feels though, and also enjoyed a day living in the 19th century.


    12. So I guess I'm a minority with this one. I was not as impressed or touched as the other reviewers with this book. It could be that I've already read so many different accounts of the Titanic that I've become desensitized, but it's more than that.I felt like the storyline of the book was very similar to the movie. This is supposed to be a first person account of the disaster, as Margaret keeps a diary of her journey. So in theory, a first person account of the Titanic sinking is supposed to pull [...]


    13. I remembered this as better than it was. Which is not to say that it's bad! It's a very well-researched depiction of a journey on the Titanic by a thirteen-year-old lady's companion who lives through the sinking. The description of the ship is dead on and conveys the luxury of first class very well, and the horror of the sinking is also very accurately conveyed, with bittersweet notes about the gallantry of the men who stayed behind.I think my biggest problem with the book is that the sinking of [...]


    14. ‘Titanic, My Story’, written by Ellen Emerson White, is a wonderfully written story suitable for children of 9+ years. It is a vividly imagined account of life on the Titanic by a young girl. This book would be great to read as part of lessons focusing on the Titanic disaster on its 100 year anniversary. Written in diary form, it allows children to experience through the eyes of another child what happened in what remains one of the biggest maritime disasters of all time. This story rings so [...]


    15. it is a fictional tale but one that truly makes you think about the movie version that we have all seen. the sinking of the titanic is something that most of us have forgotten but this story about a real girl on the ship really gives a new perspective about what happened that fateful nite. a good kids book too. my mom got it for me a long time ago and i reread it and it was still amazing.


    16. I loved these books when I was younger so when a friend donated a bucket of books to my classroom and I saw this one in there, I read it for old times sake. I still love it!


    17. An awesome and well-written book. As the reader, you can really feel the emotions of Margaret through the word usage. These are real events that a young girl the same age as Margaret could have experienced on the Titanic. At the end of the book, there is a historical note section about the Titanic, real pictures, and a timeline of the Titanic, which was a great addition to the book. You are able to learn more about the history of the Titanic and you can see what the ship and the people looked li [...]


    18. Another great Dear America. I had been meaning to read this one for quite sometime. This one is about Margaret Ann Brady and orphan from the Whitechapel district in London. She is given the oppurtunity to be a companion to a wealthy American who is on her way back to the States by way of the Titanic. Margaret feels very lucky to have been chosen for this and also lucky because she gets to travel first class. She also seems to feel like a fraud because if she had paid for passage herself she woul [...]


    19. Voyage on the Great Titanic (R.M.S. Titanic) / 0-590-96273-6"Voyage on the Great Titanic" is unusual for a Dear America installation for several reasons. The narrator is not an American, nor does the story originate there - instead, Margaret is a native of the British isles and is traveling to America as a companion to a wealthy patron, with the intent to settle in America permanently on arrival. The novel is shorter than most, and deals very linearly with the Titanic disaster. Although these bo [...]


    20. When Margaret Ann Brady was seven years old, her father died, and her mother died not long after. Eventually, her brother left her at an orphanage in London and immigrated to America, hoping to find a good job there so that he could later pay for Margaret’s passage to America and they could be reunited. When Margaret is thirteen, in the spring of 1912, she gets the opportunity to travel to America and join her brother in Boston, in a different way than expected. Mrs. Carstairs, a wealthy Ameri [...]


    21. This has to be the best kid's book I've ever read, much less the best Dear America book!!Margaret Ann Brady is an orphan in London, and by chance, she gets chosen to be the lady's maid for a wealthy American lady . . . and she gets to go to America, to meet up with her brother William. Not only that, she gets to travel on the most luxuorious, the one and only unsinkable ship - Titanic!!Okay, so what if it was kind of predictable. It was one of the sweetest, most well-written books ever. Margaret [...]


    22. Thirteen-year-old Margaret Ann Brady lives at an orphanage in London. Her parents have died, and she longs to join her older brother, who has immigrated to Boston, in America. Margaret gets what she thinks is the opportunity of a lifetime: a job as the companion of Mrs. Carstairs, a wealthy American woman traveling home on the Titanic. All Margaret has to do is keep Mrs. Carstairs company on the voyage, and she will get free passage to America where she can join her brother. And she will get the [...]


    23. Its one of the best books i have read in a long time. That is all i can say. Though if you have read it you might disagree with me. Everybody does generally know how the Great Titanic sank and what become of it- old news, how boring. Though this book is very interesting and different for it shares with you right from getting onto the ship until the awful wreck its had become. This is personal diary of a twelve year old girl who's there to keep a very upper class and wealthy lady company through [...]


    24. Margaret is an orphan who gets a position as a traveling companion for Mrs. Carstairs who is traveling on the Titanic's maiden voyage. She hopes to reunite with her brother open arriving in America. The story, as all Dear America's stories are told, is through diary entries. We see the opulence and class distinctions through her eyes as her life in East End London changes for the better. Until, of course, the tragedy that occurs on the voyage. The author is good at giving a feel for the ship and [...]


    25. This book is set during the sinking of the Titanic. I liked the way the author uses the diary style writing to make you connect with the characters. It makes you feel as if you are on the sinking boat with them. The fact that the sinking of the Titanic was a real event that happened made me want to read the book even more. I found myself feeling very bad for Margaret and hoping that she would be one of the survivors. There was a lot of excitement and intense reading as you get to the end, not kn [...]


    26. I read this book when I was a kid. Even though it is historical fiction it gives plenty of factual evidence about the Titanic. The dates are accurate and the description of how the ship went down is factual as well. It was neat because in the back of the book there are pictures of the actual ship, people on it, and survivors. This book was gripping, because the author built of the suspence well to the day of the sinking of the ship. It is appropriate for young readers. There is an innocent roman [...]


    27. A part of the Dear America series, this particular book focuses on the voyage of the Titanic. These books are a wonderful way for students to learn more about these specific times in American history. The writers' stories make past events come alive for the readers and help instill a greater appreciation for our predecessors. Also included at the back of each book is a historical note about the time period as well as reproductions of important documents and paintings during that era. The only do [...]


    28. About being on the titanic & the great disaster of its sinking and the great display of courage within the crew and passengers on the ship And many more things about living in that time, where there was a very distinct, significant social classingYou were either First Class.(very rich & famous) 2nd Class (Normal society) or 3rd Class( street beggers, immigrants,workers) and also gave me a very deep insight into being on the Titanic & what it was like & the great tragedy of its si [...]


    29. I'm rating this on a level of 'I liked it' because I used to REALLY like it, but now I think it's 'okay.' So you know - nostalgic reasons and all that. I remember reading this book after I spotted on the shelf of a good friend of mine, and then promptly borrowed it. I loved the story; Margaret Jane's new adventure, her new wardrobe - and oh, I thought her little romance with Robert was ADORABLE. :-)It is a cute book, but as an older reader I did think that many diary entries were dull and kind o [...]


    30. Margaret Ann Brady's older brother left her in an orphanage and immigrated to America. When the orphanage receives an unusual request from an American woman looking for a traveling companion, Margaret's teachers agree that she is the perfect candidate to accompany Mrs. Carstairs on the TITANIC. So that once Margaret arrives in New York she will be free to join her brother in Boston. But the TITANIC is destined for tragedy, and Margaret's journey is thrown into a frozen nightmare when the ship co [...]
