FIRST CLASS SUITE [1], B DECK, RMS TITANIC 

George woke up early that morning, half excepting to hear Papa calling him for chores.

But then he remembered: the Titanic!

He was on the greatest ship in the world.

It was their fifth day at sea. George and his eight-year-old sister, Phoebe, had spent two months in England with their aunt Daisy. What a time they had! As a surprise for George’s tenth birthday, Aunt Daisy took them to see the Tower of London, where they used to chop off your head if the king didn’t like you.

Now they were heading hack to [2] America.

Back to Papa and their little farm in upstate [3] New York.

George got out of bed and knelt by the small, round window that looked out on the ocean.

Morning,” said Phoebe, peering through the silk curtains of her bed and fumbling [4] for her spectacles [5]. Her curly [6] brown hair was practically standing straight up. “What were you looking for?”

George had to smile. Phoebe always had a question, even at the crack of dawn [7].

Maybe that’s why she was the smartest little sister in the world.

“1 thought I saw a giant squid [8],” George said. “And it’s coming to get us!”
