Historical fact and fiction blend in this riveting novel set aboard the Titanic .

Fourteen-year-old Jamie Laidlaw is returning to Canada from England aboard the Titanic . In his four days on board, he busies himself with new friends, finding ways to explore the ship's forbidden areas, and generally landing himself in trouble.

When disaster strikes and the horrifying scramble for survival ensues, Jamie is on the front lines - struggling to help free the lifeboats and get people on board them. When a huge wave washes over the ship's sloping deck, it's time for Jamie to take action - and take his fate into his own hands. With hundreds of others, he dives into the sea, hoping he will find a way to survive.

Since its launch in Fall 2010, the I Am Canada series has been praised for its accurate and energetic exploration of fascinating moments in Canadian history, through the eyes of young men who lived through them. In Deadly Voyage , award-winning author and noted Titanic historian Hugh Brewster draws from his vast knowledge of that fateful journey to create an enthralling tale of historical fiction - the ultimate adventure, whose terrifying end we know all too well.
