Booklist Review: "Similar to the You Wouldn't Want to . . . series from Scholastic, The Way It Was covers a number of lowly ways to make a living throughout history, but this title takes the cake. You the book makes the reader into the fictional protagonist are a 20-year-old attendant aboard the Titanic, one of only 18 female stewards. (An info box informs us that women ship workers were considered bad luck.) It's a fresh angle: you share your cramped cabin with three other stewards and rush to and fro responding to each passenger's whim. Though the conceit that this is a movie role feels unnecessary perhaps it was intended to make the story less frightening the book has decent educational value, aside from a cutaway diagram of the ship that doesn't benefit from the rough acrylic art. Enjoyable and exciting, though? Indeed, and lucky you you survive, thanks to the women and children first rule.--Kraus, Daniel Copyright 2010 Booklist"
