Pulling off the perfect heist is always a challenge, but here on the open seas, the chance of success and survival is truly put to the test.
From the author of The Henna Wars, we bring you the heist of all heists. Board the RMS Titanic and head to sea for the adventure of a lifetime.

If only life were that simple. As you read on, you will discover that old grudges, careless mistakes, and the potential of romance can change even the best of plans in an instant, and destroy everything they have worked for.
Get ready to navigate your way through first-class passengers and suspicious crew members in this heart-pounding romantic adventure centered around an impossible heist. As you find yourself caught up in this gripping suspense-filled story, remember that where the Titanic is concerned, danger and tragedy are always nearby. Your chances of survival? A million to one!
The Ultimate Heist
Who doesn't love a great heist story? It is the one time when we pray for the "criminals" to succeed. We sit back in admiration as their elaborate plan unfolds page by page. It is a game of wits and one we so desperately want them to win. It is the thrill and the escapism that attracts us from the beginning.
Perhaps it is their bravery or courage we applaud or the brilliance of their plan, but if we are honest, we know that we have inadvertently become their accomplices and are rooting for them. We begin to feel like them and see things the way they do. We've become a member of the gang, and we have a job to do!
Who should be reading this novel?
This is perfect for those young adults seeking an adventure filled with suspense and intrigue interspersed with those nail-biting moments we love to hate, and let's not forget that touch of romance. And for those fans of Stalking Jack the Ripper and Girl in the Blue Coat, this will be a welcome addition to their collection.
At Once Upon A Book Club, we believe in bringing books to life – it's all about the experience. So steady your balance as we whirl you into the world of high-seas heists; just remember to keep that life jacket in sight; it is the Titanic, after all!
