Blurb:Fifteen-year-old Corinne LaRoche’s life changes one evening when she returns home and witnesses her father being harassed by racist French policemen. That’s it! Her frustrated father decides the family is leaving France and moving back to Canada.
What an enjoyable book! I have always loved reading about Titanic and watching programs about it, but this gives it a nice refreshing twist on how things were. I immediately fell in love with the LaRoche family and their story. I loved the fact that they were on that ship and that Corrine met a 1st class boy who was not ashamed to show her off and liked her for who she was, not defining her by what she was like so many people did. I enjoyed the interaction between sisters, Corrine and Astrid,and how in moments of conflict and tragedy, they are able to come together.
This book is so much more than just Titanic. Its about learning to rise above, selflessness, the act of truly loving another with all of your being, and the courage to face fear straight on.
Do yourself a favor and grab this book when it comes out!!
