Book Review: Rooftoppers by Katherine Rundell by Alex S Yr6

'Rooftoppers' is a masterpiece as it shows a key message about pursuing your dreams and never ignoring a 'possible'. It was the winner of the Blue Peter Book Award, Waterstones Children's Book Prize, and was shortlisted for the CILIP Carnegie Medal, Guardian Children's Fiction Prize and the UKLA Children's Book Award. 

It follows the story of a curious, young girl named Sophie. She is an orphan who luckily survived a shipwreck at the age of one! Floating in a case, Sophie was wrapped in the music of Beethoven. As she is adopted by Charles, they immigrate to Paris, France to try and find her mother, Viveniena. She befriends a 'rooftopper' (a person who lives on the roofs) named Matteo and searches the land for her mother. 

I would rate it ***** (out of 5) because it is really enjoyable. It is my 4th favourite book.
