Knox looked up to see her lying still sprawled on the bed. I have to get my bike taken care of before the cops come by and tow it off. His cell phone rang. What’s up? Viper’s cool voice on the phone made Knox even more furious at himself for betraying the club’s decision not to have any contact with Samantha. When the president of The Last Rider’s found out who he had spent the last few hours fucking, Knox was going to get his ass kicked. Sam was responsible for attacking Viper’s fiancée and almost getting two other women raped, who also belonged to two of The Last Riders. Sam was lucky she was still breathing.

Trapped on the Titanic is a work of children’s historical fiction set in 2012, the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. The thrilling, chilling story begins with Callie Elizabeth, an eighth grade girl with a normal life. At least her life was fairly normal until she finds herself alone and staring into the eyes of a weeping photograph that is over 100 years old. Who is the girl in the picture and why does she look so much like Callie? Why does the phantasmic image of the girl keep appearing to Callie? What does she want from her? As Callie searches for answers about the girl in the photograph, she finds herself engulfed in family secrets, haunting visits, and espionage. What really happened that night of April 14 and the early morning of April 15, 1912 as the majestic Titanic sank to her watery grave? How can Callie solve the mystery and put to rest the ghosts of her family’s past? With the help of a good friend, her grandmother’s love for history and her own keen perception, Callie discovers that things are not always as they seem. Learning from the past, Callie is able to find priceless treasures that have been hidden away since the sinking of the Titanic.

"God himself could not sink this ship!" - Unknown Titanic crew member to embarking passenger Mrs Sylvia Caldwell

Callie Elizabeth is in the eight grade and loves history. when her class goes to an exhibit about the RMS Titanic, Callie is drawn to a black and white photograph of a girl who looks like her. after the school trip, Callie's normal life is drastically altered when she experiences ghostly visitations from the little girl in the picture. determined to solve the mystery of the hauntings, Callie, together with her friend and her grandmother's help, delves deeper into her family's history. along the way, she uncovers secrets and brings to light treasures kept hidden for almost a hundred years.

this book appears to be intended for young readers and i think this group would be entertained by the story. there is a mystery to be solved, a ghost that keeps showing up and treasures to be discovered. in between, they will be treated to snippets of factual information about the tragic sinking of the "unsinkable" RMS Titanic on April 15, 1912. the timeline shifts from the present to the past but it is clearly drawn and the reader will never get lost.

a passionate educator with a creative mind could transform this fictional account into a great learning tool for young minds. it could complement lessons on maritime history, disasters at sea, shipbuilding and a lot more. the newspaper articles, journal entries, old photographs and letters have also great potential as learning materials in a writing and/or art class.

a few niggles. i saw a few errors that should be corrected. one example that stands out would be "broach." i know that one broaches a subject but one could never wear it. a "brooch" would be more appropriate, don't you agree?

there are also a few ancestors mentioned whose relation to Callie overwhelmed me. i can just see young readers scratching their heads with "A was her 'great-grand-' or B was her 'great-grand-grand -'or that C was her 'great-grand-grand-grand-'. a simple family tree at the beginning or end of the book would have helped lessen the confusion. there were already photographs in the book so why not include a chart as well. just my two cents.

pardon the pun but it was not a total disaster though. it did not even come close. it was still a good read. extra credits go to the author for managing to mesh fact and fiction and coming up with a novel that not only entertains but also informs.

Okay so first off I will admit that I got this book for a friend of mine whose daughters have issues with reading anything, but they both seem to be interested in the Titanic. As another reviewer said, I even thought there would be more about the true Titanic in the book based on the title yet the book did not disappoint in many areas. However there were a few points that I was kind of flustered. I realized when I downloaded it that it was written towards a young audience, that was one of the drawing points for me since the girls I was getting it for don't have good reading skills, but it didn't make a big difference because I was able to understand it easily and so were the girls.

I think the worst disappointment of the book for me, and even one of the girls, was the adoption of the little sister. To have this as a "surprise" for the main character just seemed to be forced, most adoptions are a whole family event so that there might not be as much resentment by the other children in the family. The fact that this teenager just immediately "loved" the new sister and never thought of the child with anything but great joy and love seemed too wrong, to me. I really believe that this whole part of the book could have been deleted and the story would have only been better.

This is a gentle ghost story for probably 8-12 year olds. The writing is rather inexperienced, especially the dialogue. The reader doesn't need a play by play and the conversation was not natural. But I think young girls would enjoy it.

Ironically I had been to see the Titantic exhibit in Pigeon Forge, TN, two days prior to reading this book. My character card was Ms. Coutts which registered on the "weird" meter. I really enjoyed it. Definitely for a younger audience but I wasn't looking for something to deep. Drags just a little toward the end but with a wonderful conclusion. Definitely would recommend if you want a light feel good mystery and you enjoy information on the titantic.

I didn't expect this book to be about ghosts but it is a good read. I would have liked it better if the heroine wasn't a rich little girl. I think I would have liked it better if she was a descendent of one of the poor people who were treated like cattle on the Titanic.

really enjoyed this book. I like time travel and have read several books on the Titanic so that was good for me. Young adult book....a little mystery.

What would you do if you were visiting a Titanic exhibit at your local museum and you saw a picture of a little girl who looks like you? What would you do if that picture started crying? That is the dilemma eighth-grade student Callie Elizabeth finds herself in. After some research, Callie discovers that the painting belongs to her long-ago ancestor, Elizabeth, who died on the Titanic. Callie's visited by the ghost of her ancestor who needs help telling the truth of her death. Were German spies involved in Elizabeth's death? Was Elizabeth's father responsible?
This young adult historical mystery mixes factual information on the Titanic disaster and fictional characters whose lives are forever changed by that one moment in time. The plot is fantastic, but I feel the characters are too good to be true. The eighth-grade protagonist is the perfect student, and daughter. She does nothing wrong, listens to her parents, and follows all the rules. (What??) Her grandmother and parents are the essence of good role models. Also, a little more editing would be beneficial.
Very nice family friendly fiction. Written from a teenager's view. Looking back at an unlikely Titanic occurrence. A ghost story.
