Customer Review: Rooftoppers



Katherine Rundell

Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers


Out September 24. 2013

On the morning of her first birthday, a baby girl was found in a cello case floating in the middle of the English Channel among the remains of a ship. An eccentric scholar, Charles, who survived the wreck finds her and takes her in. He raises Sophie, the baby girl, to the best of his ability, but when child services threaten to take Sophie to an orphanage, the pair flee to France to try and find Sophie’s mother. In Paris, she meets a boy named Matteo and his rooftopper friends, all children who live on top of the roofs of the city. Together, they search Paris for Sophie’s mother, but does her mother even exist? And if so, where can they find her? I quite enjoyed this book, and highly recommend it when it comes out in September. If you like popular realistic fiction, you’ll like Rooftoppers as well.
