The book is very character driven. I loved the voice of the narrator Valora Luck. I loved her intelligence, street smarts, quick thinking, athletic abilities, and spunk. This book is one I had a difficult time putting down as the built in historical tension of this tragic event added an increased urgency for me to keep reading. Stacey Lee brought new information to light about Titanic I didn’t know. I knew about the racism and classism when it came to the sinking of the ship. I’ve been FASCINATED by this ships voyage ever since I heard about it when I was a kid. However, I didn’t know about the Chinese souls that basically went unaccounted for. Unless you were a researcher or someone truly, and quite deeply, invested in Titanic’s history from when it left port to when it sank chances are you, like me, had no idea about these souls and what they went through.
