“Your future lies beyond a mountain of ice, where you will die, and live again.” The wisewoman’s prophecy disturbs Miranda, a maidservant who bears an uncanny resemblance to her rich and arrogant mistress, Amanda Whitwell. Thrust into a tangled web of lies by Amanda, Miranda watches helplessly as one fateful night, a prophecy once foretold becomes reality . . . aboard the Titanic. Richard Peck’s newly abridged edition of his popular adult novel is an enthralling adventure that will capture the reader’s imagination.

“A sure winner . . . A charming novel, full of mistaken identity, thwarted love and sweet revenge.”

“The kind of page turner that has rainy days and summer reading written all over it.”
-The Horn Book


This book is actually a reprint of the original, which came out in 1980! I love any book having to do with the Titanic, even though the probability of things turning out well is very unlikely, lol. Plus, the cover is really pretty. The description says this is an abridged edition of the adult version…where can I get the adult version?!

    Oh I absolutely LOVE the concept of this one… Except I hate the title. Definitely adding this to my TBR. Sigh. Your fault for sure.
