We’ve had another helpful Reader in on work experience which means another Recommended Read to enjoy! Jennifer Edwards recommends Rooftoppers.

I do, I’m afraid, understand books far more readily than I understand people. Books are so easy to get along with.” – Katherine Rundell, Rooftoppers

Rooftoppers is a novel written by Katherine Rundell for young adults. Rundell is easily able to captivate her readers and submerge them into the charming world of Sophie and Charles.

After a shipwreck that left Sophie, the lead female character, orphaned from the age of 1, she is taken in by the charming scholar, Charles Maxim. Sophie is raised by Charles on Shakespeare and classical music and so, for her 12th Birthday Sophie is gifted a cello – much to the disappointment of the unrelenting Miss Eliot.

The night of her 12th birthday Sophie discovers a clue in her cello case that could possibly lead her and Charles to the beloved mother she lost during the shipwreck.

I would highly recommend Rooftoppers to anyone young adult as it is a fantastic story of loss, hope, love and friendship.

“If music can shine, Sophie thought, this music shone. It was like all the voices in all the choirs in the city rolled into a single melody”.  – Katherine Rundell, Rooftoppers
