Roof Toppers

Everyone thinks that Sophie is an orphan. True, there were no other recorded female survivors from the shipwreck

which left baby Sophie floating in the English Channel in a cello case, but Sophie remembers seeing her mother wave for help. Her guardian tells her it is almost impossible that her mother is still alive, but that means still possible. You should never ignore a possible. So when the Welfare Agency writes to her guardian threatening to send Sophie to an orphanage, she takes matters into her own hands and flees to Paris to look for her mother, starting with the only clue she has - the address of the cello maker. Evading the French authorities, she meets Matteo and his network of rooftoppers - urchins who live in the sky. Together they scour the city for Sophie's mother before she is caught and sent back to London, and most importantly before she loses hope.

My Thoughts

I loved The Explorer and Roof Toppers offers the same sense of adventure, carrying you through this beautifully written story at a great pace.

Roof Toppers has won so many awards and been praised by so many pundits it hardly needs me to add my tuppence worth.

Find out for yourself - you won’t regrett it.
