Description

 

From avalanches to shipwrecks, this brand-new fiction series hurtles its characters into dangerous situations, leaving them with only their wits and and courage to survive!

At 1:55 AM on the morning of May 29, 1914, two young friends, Grace and Albert stand on the deck of the Empress of Ireland, a ship sailing from Canada to Liverpool, England.

But excitement soon turns to terror, as the friends feel a sharp jolt. The ship begins to tilt. People scream. Stewards order passengers to head for the lifeboats. It is a full-on nautical disaster, and only one question remains…

Will they survive?
