Sophie was rescued from a sinking ship
No records survived and everyone believes that no woman remained alive. Sophie was saved by kind Charles; who brings her up. No one knows her mother and everyone thinks she's orphaned. She sets out to prove everyone wrong. Running away from the law, Sophie befriends wild Matteo, who scrambles round rooftops and owns the sky. Together, with help from other Rooftoppers, will they find Sophie's mother?
What I think:
I've rated it 5/5 as it is cleverly written and exciting. It's original, as it's set on the rooftops Paris, which makes it a lot more interesting. Sophie is a stubborn but lovable character.
This story is great for girls and boys aged 10+.
