This book was the diary of Margaret Ann Brady.
I enjoy reading about history and learning what things happened in the past, and that is why I picked up this book. It was a very wonderful story, and you got to see the tragedy of the RMS Titanic through the eyes of a 13-year-old orphaned girl. There really isn’t anything I could dislike about this book considering that it is an actual diary of a young girl, so I don’t think it appropriate to criticize a young girl's diary. Considering that she probably didn’t want anyone to know about her diary in the first place. This book was a very quick read and I read it in 2 days, but I believe if you really wanted to you could finish it in a single day.
If you want to see the Titanic from a different viewpoint, then definitely give this book a try.

I’ve read 8 or 10 of the Dear America series. This is by far the best one I’ve read so far.

This is an amazing book! It is really sad though.

This was a touching, interesting and romantic story, and if you like sad endings this is the one for you. SPOILER ALERT: In the end the Margaret's love dies on the sinking titanic.

A great way to learn about the sinking of the Titanic, through the eyes of a young orphan girl who appreciates the smallest luxury and takes nothing for granted. Her amazement of the largest ocean liner and all it's luxuries as well as it's occupants is very eye-opening. She is concerned about the ones in steerage and wonders why the ones in first class need to dress up for each meal and have so many courses. Really enjoyed this book.

This was a good book. I couldn't put it down. It was one of my favourites!! Margaret writes about her journey on the Titanic.

I liked this book, but i felt sad too of the way it ended. I'm the kind of person that doesn't like any sad realistic deaths.

Very well written, and great for learning the history of the Titanic. Margret Ann's story kept me captivated, and her feelings afterwards are very real and natural. Love, love, love!
I also recommend the other books in the Dear America series, including the Winter of Red Snow, Down the Rabbit Hole, When Will This Cruel War Be Over, and Across the Wide and Lonesome Prairie.
