About this audiobook

Adiba Jaigirdar, author of one of Time's Best YA books of all time, gives Titanic an Ocean’s 8 makeover in this nail-biting heist set onboard the infamous ship.

Josefa is an unapologetic and charismatic thief, who loves the thrill of the chase. She has her eye on her biggest mark yet—the RMS Titanic, the most luxurious ship in the world. But she isn’t interested in stealing from wealthy first-class passengers onboard. No, she’s out for the ultimate prize: the Rubiyat, a one of a kind book encrusted with gems that’s worth millions.

Josefa can’t score it alone, so she enlists a team of girls with unique talents: Hinnah, a daring acrobat and contortionist; Violet, an actress and expert dissembler; and Emilie, an artist who can replicate any drawing by hand.

They couldn’t be more different and yet they have one very important thing in common: their lives depend on breaking into the vault and capturing the Rubiyat. But careless mistakes, old grudges, and new romance threaten to jeopardize everything they’ve worked for and put them in incredible danger when tragedy strikes.

While the odds of pulling off the heist are slim, the odds of survival are even slimmer…

Perfect for fans of Stalking Jack the Ripper and Girl in the Blue Coat, this high-seas heist from the author of The Henna Wars is an immersive story that makes readers forget one important detail—the ship sinks.

Editor's Note

Lively heist…

“A Million to One” is a YA sapphic romance, historical fiction, and lively heist all in one. In 1912, petty thief Josefa and her motley crew of misfits board the RMS Titanic where they’ll use their various skills, from contortionism to forgery, to steal a rare and bejeweled book of poetry. Jaigirdar (“The Henna Wars”) builds tension via the characters’ relationships and thieving antics along with a countdown to the real disaster.

    This narrator was so utterly *earnest* with her narration, especially Josefa. It’s a great heist story with a sapphic couple in the center as well.
