    #3 How to Survive the Titanic

     How to Survive the Titanic

Bruce Ismay, the boat's captain who managed to survive the crash. Often regarded as coward and guilty of the crash, he had a miserable life once he got to safe land until his death, and this book explains why.

    "This book is more for younger readers, they'll probably love it. It goes over the voyage from the perspective of someone on the boat, so it's a fictional retelling of the Titanic's trip. It'd be great for any kids interested in that type of story, but adults would probably look elsewhere. "
