The following is from the book's back cover:

Tyler has been acting a little weird lately. His friends say he is pretending that he lives on a ship that sank in 1912. His parents think it's time for him to get a life. Only the local librarian appreciates what he's up to.

You see, Tyler is going to make history by actually going aboard the wreck of the Titanic. He is unearthing the story of what really happened when the great ship went down.

Escorted by ghosts of the crew and passengers, Tyler visits the unsinkable ocean liner on the floor of the Atlantic. Accompanied by his dog, Spoofer, he answers questions that have been raised for nearly a century. What went wrong on the night of April 15, 1912? What happened during the ship's final hours? And why did some of the victims return to the ship after their lives ended?

While his classmates play video games and surf the Internet, Tyler speaks to original sources and offers a fresh look at a story uniquely his. When you finish his account you'll want to shake Tyler's hand and thank him for setting the record straight.
