Fascinating fictional retelling of the events that led to the tragedy of the Titanic, based on documents from the National Archives.

A boy works in the dockyard where the Titanic is being built, then gets a job on the ship. As he witnesses a series of mistakes, short-cuts and bad decisions, he becomes more and more worried about what could happen. But he's preoccupied by his rivalry with a fellow ship's boy and doesn't realise the full scale of what's happening until it's too late... (pb)
