The year is 1908. Seventeen-year-old Rosalind Wallace’s blissful stay in England with her best friend, Cecily de Vere, has come to an abrupt end, which is fine with Rosalind. She was getting tired of being high society Cecily’s American “pet.” Her industrialist father is unveiling his fabulous new Transatlantic Express, the world’s first underwater railway. As a publicity stunt he has booked her on the maiden voyage—without asking. Rosalind is furious. But lucky for her, Cecily and her handsome older brother, Charles, volunteer to accompany her home.
Fun turns to worry when Charles disappears during boarding. Then, deep under the sea, Cecily and her housemaid, Doris, are found stabbed to death in their state-room. Rosalind is now trapped on Father’s train—fighting to clear herself of her friend’s murder, to find the killer, and ultimately to uncover the sinister truth behind the railway’s construction.
Why I’m excited – This book looks AMAZING! I love historical fiction but I always seem to struggle to find GOOD YA historical fiction. Hopefully this one will really impress me!

Yes! We all know the struggle of having so many books on our TBR’s, we feel like we’re drowning. Saying that, there’s a certain kind of comfort being surrounded by books and knowing you won’t run out of reading material in the near future.
I’m here today for another Book Travelling Thursdays. This meme was created by Danielle and Cátia. If you would like to take part, please go and check out the Goodreads group here.
This weeks topic is ‘Because friendship matters, choose your favourite bookish BFF.’ Of course I went with Hermione Granger because there is no one else in the bookish world that I’d want to be best friends with. She loves books just as much as me and she is totally badass.
