            This is the day when everything changed. The day when many lives were lost. George was lucky, why? Because he got 1st class in the TITANIC!!! Crazy? I know. He was with his aunt and sister. Everything was splendid and wonderful! All the food he could possibly eat and all the luxury! No, not the day when everything turned around from wonderful to horrible!! It couldn't possibly happen! The Titanic is supposed to be unsinkable!! WRONG! Slowly, the Titanic began to sink, water pooled in, it was just to much for him then he blacked out. You: Awww. Me: I know, I know. you want to know what happens next, then read the book to find out!!

                      I soooooo want to read this book. I made up a little challenge for myself that i have to read 13 books before the next school year and that book is in my reading list online and in my book basket which holds all 13 books except 1 because I'm reading it. Tell me if any of you have read Saving Zasha. But i totally want to read the book "i survived the sinking of the titanic.
