Death on the Water brings the great ship alive for young readers by combining both fact and fiction. The famous story of the sinking of the great ship Titantic has fascinated all who have heard it since the actual event took place 100 years ago. Told as seen through the eyes of a fourteen year old bell boy, this dramatic and touching story gives insight into the excitement of the maiden voyage of this ground-breaking ship followed by the absolute horror of its catastrophic end.

A great read for boys in particular because the protagonist is a 14 year old bell boy. Titanic My Story is a great read for girls for its protagonist is a young girl aboard the ship.

Synopsis

Titanic Death on the Water by Tom Bradman

Fascinating fictional retelling of the events that led to the tragedy of the Titanic, based on documents from the National Archives. A boy works in the dockyard where the Titanic is being built, then gets a job on the ship. As he witnesses a series of mistakes, short-cuts and bad decisions, he becomes more and more worried about what could happen. But he's preoccupied by his rivalry with a fellow ship's boy and doesn't realise the full scale of what's happening until it's too late...
