Gr 4-6-This book takes readers from the past to the present in a story involving a ghost, a mystery, and time travel. It opens in present-day Victoria, British Columbia, where Kevin and his classmates are visiting the Titanic: Artifact Exhibition as a field trip. Subsequent chapters take readers to Halifax, Nova Scotia, in April 1912, as Ordinary Seaman Angus Seaton works with the crew of a ship charged with recovering the bodies of the Titanic victims. The lives of these two young men intertwine as Kevin in the present day seeks to solve the mystery of why his father inherited the estate of Angus Seaton, a man he did not know. Kevin sets out to quiet the ghost of a girl who haunts him and discovers the far-reaching effects of the tragedy. The action moves quickly, and readers learn about the recovery and identification of victims taken to Halifax. The author's note gives insight into the process of identification as well as the role Canadians had in the recovery effort. A prior knowledge of Titanic history will make this book more appealing as it begins where many other accounts end.-Denise Moore, O'Gorman Junior High School, Sioux Falls, SD (c) Copyright 2012.
