Everyone thinks that Sophie is an orphan. Found floating in a cello case, she is the only recorded female survivor of a shipwreck on the English Channel. But Sophie remembers seeing her mother wave for help… When the child welfare agency threatens to send Sophie to an orphanage, Sophie and her guardian flee to Paris to find her mother, starting with the only clue she has - the address of the cello maker.

I chose this title on a little bit of a whim and therefore was not sure what to expect. I can safely say I have been captivated from start to finish. Rundell's prose is easy, has a gorgeous flow and is full of mischief and wonder.

The characters of Sophie and Charles compliment one another so well and their relationship blossoms as the books progresses and they become more familiar with one another.

Sophie is a charming character with lots of quirks and traits that are not only build a clear image of her in your mind but also help you picture her mannerisms as she moves through life.

This is a wonderful book and I would recommend it to any one. The story is one that keeps you guessing with lots of twists and turns. Rundell's characters are interesting and this book will certainly make you think differently about the world above your head and the world of the Sky Steppers.

Rooftoppers is well worth the download. Gordon Griffin's voice is easy to listen to and I thoroughly enjoyed this title.
