Booklist - 03/15/2017 Luke, Julia, David, and Isabel—millionaire inventor Miss Zandergoth’s Flashback Four— want another chance to time travel, despite their earlier failure to get a photo of Lincoln delivering the Gettysburg Address. Miss Z is reluctant, but the teens offer to photograph the sinking of the Titanic. The four are deposited on the ship mere hours before the event, but last-minute fumbles prevent their rescue. Will Miss Z be able to extract them from 1912 and return them to modern times? Fans of The Flashback Four: The Lincoln Project (2016) will welcome another entry in the series. Gutman keeps the easygoing tone of the first book, despite the seriousness of the tragedy, and his narrator regularly hops in and out of the story to provide background, historical facts, or instruct readers. Despite that choice, the gravity and heartbreak of the situation cannot help but come through. There are real and imaginary photos included, along with STEM content, a diagram or two, and an extended author’s note separating fact and fiction. - Copyright 2017 Booklist.
