Latest in the Dear Canada series, fictional diaries of girls in different times in Canadian history, this is the diary of Dorothy, who survived the Titanic disaster but DOESN'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT and wishes people would stop asking.

I love all the books in this series!! The nice things is how the chapters are so short you don't feel like you have to read for so long! I also recommend the polio epidemic diary it is very well written!

: After a wonderful two-month visit with her grandparents in England, 12-year-old Dorothy was returning home to Halifax when the great ship she was on hit an iceberg and sank. Her escort, Miss Pugh, died in the tragedy. Dorothy survived. Now home, and banned from school for hitting a girl who was taunting her about the sinking, Dorothy is trying to come to terms with her guilt. Her favourite teacher brings her a journal and suggests she write about her experience, but instead she writes of her bohemian grandparents, her English friends Owen and Millie and the plays they put on. But the nightmares persist, and finally, with some deft questioning by the teacher, Dorothy is finally able to recall the events of that fateful night – and the secret she’s been hiding. Ellis concludes the novel with photos of the Titanic and its survivors and fascinating historical and author’s notes.
