    Voyage on the Great Titanic from the Dear America series, and I LOVE, LOVE Titanic the movie!! I even went to watch it in 3D with my friend who had never watched it before, and she said she LOVED IT. XD

    I love the movie cause it is about the titanic. I love the part when jack was drawing rose. I also love the part when the titanic was sinking and it riped in two. It was so sad when jack died in the water. One of my friends started to cry. It was so funny when she ran away from the guy that was chasing her. But out of the whole movie I loved the part when rose was going to go overboard and then jack saved her from falling. I love this movie.

    My favorite story about the tragic incident with the Titanic would be one of my favorite Dear America diaries, Voyage on the Great Titanic. I reccomeend this to all people who enjoy fictional stories that relate with the real past.
