Book Review: Rooftoppers

Picture and synopsis from Goodreads

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.

I'm rubbish at finding books to read for myself, I rely almost entirely off recommendations from other people. And one person who has been influencing my commute reads recently is Sanne from the youtube channel Books and Quills. Not only does she recommend some really fab books, she also reviews them in a descriptive and enticing way I could only dream of. 

So, if you're interested in this book, please head on over to Sanne's channel and check out her review because she'll do a much better job of convincing you, than I ever could.

As always, please leave any book recommendations in the comments. I'm always on the hunt for my next read.
