I'm a sucker for anything Titanic, but it has to be done right. Luck of the Titanic is done RIGHT. The story is told through the viewpoint of Valora Luck, a Chinese girl who is attempting to make her way to the United States via the Titanic so that she and her twin brother Jamie can make their way in a land seemingly filled with opportunity. There's one problem though: Jamie doesn't have his heart set on the United States, and Valora has tasked herself with convincing her twin that their old life of acrobatics is their ticket into a new world of possibility. Luck of the Titanic is told from a character's perspective lost in time, and deviates from the most oft seen stories of rich, white protagonists. Lee pays homage to the Chinese passengers on the Titanic, whose own experiences on the ship were buried in history. A gorgeous novel with rich prose, Luck of the Titanic is sure to intrigue historical fiction fans of all ages.
