At the dawn of a reimagined 20th century, one girl must become the reluctant symbol of a new world.

The year is 1908. Seventeen-year-old Rosalind Wallace's blissful stay in England with her best friend, Cecily de Vere, ends abruptly when her father books Rosalind on the maiden voyage of his fabulous Transatlantic Express, the world's first railroad to travel under the sea. Rosalind is furious. But lucky for her, Cecily and her handsome older brother, Charles, volunteer to accompany her home.

But when Charles disappears and Cecily and her housemaid, Doris, are found stabbed to death in their state room, Rosalind finds herself trapped undersea, in a deadly fight to clear herself of her friend's murder and to thwart a sinister enemy.

This is an odd book, in the sense that while the characters are older teens, meaning the intended audience is YA, the writing style is simple enough to appeal to more of a middle grade crowd. In any case, the premise is intriguing -- it's like Murder on the Orient Express plus steampunk (in that the train in question is traveling under the Atlantic Ocean, in a glass tunnel). The characters are a bit simplistic, but I thought the last 25% of the book was fairly exciting. The ending left the door wide open for sequels, so readers who enjoy this will likely have additional installments to look forward to.
