What kids think

    I love this book! I recently read my story suffragette from school and it was really good. So I decided To try My Story Titanic. I really loved how it was set out because in my opinion it is easier to learn about history in a diary form. At the start it is a little bit rushed in my opinion and not explained well enough on what is going on. Although the author has made up for that when we are eventually on the entry’s of the Titanic it is very well described and I felt like I was on their. It was so good in fact that I actually thought that Margaret Anne Brady was real. Would highly recommend to anyone who loves to learn a bout history. :)

    This book in the ‘My Story’ series is about Margaret Anne Brady, who, after years of living in an orphanage for girls, is given the chance of a lifetime to accompany the wealthy Mrs. Carstairs aboard the great Titanic, voyaging to New York, USA, from Southampton, England. Unaware of the unpredictable death trap ahead, Margaret plans ahead to live with her brother in Boston and rebuild her life.

    At the beginning of the book, most people will understand what is going to happen, but whilst reading it, you become so absorbed, and almost distracted by the characters’ own stories. Thus making a shocking realisation that the disaster really is going to happen, despite your willing it not to. This realisation comes on page 94, the paragraph starting, ‘a very strange thing just happened’.

    This story really emphasises the importance and consequences of the social standings during the beginning of George V’s reign. At the climax of the book this is emphasised even more, in the way that passengers are rescued. Or in too many cases, not rescued. A common phrase used as people are asked to board the lifeboats is ‘women and children first’. Perhaps it should have been ‘first class women and children first’ as in the book, these are the only people allowed to board the boats to safety because of the importance that they have a future, for the children, and etiquette of the ladies. Second class and steerage, as described, were left to fend for themselves, men were not permitted to travel to safety on the boats.

    A demonstration of the crew’s courage, as they would undoubtedly have known that they were going to die, was that the band kept playing, almost determined to not let their last minutes be ruined by the inevitable feeling of death on board, certainly felt by everyone around them. The saddest thing about this fact is that it was supposedly true.
