On 21 October 1988 at 6.15pm the cruise liner Jupiter was sunk after a collision in the Aegean Sea with the Italian ship Adige. On board the Jupiter were 391 schoolchildren, 84 adults and 110 crew members. A teacher and a child were never found; two crew members died. In Jupiter’s Children, 16 girls, one boy and 12 adults from Cator Park School give their accounts of the events and their aftermath. Their stories are accompanied by photographs, letters, drawings and other documents.

"The reports give a moving catalogue of terrifying experience and individual courage... Jupiter’s Children is the account of a violent rite of passage which forced children to put away childish things."—Times Education Supplement
