Quick book description: When authorities threaten to take twelve-year-old Sophie from Charles, who has been her guardian since they both survived a shipwreck when she was one year old, the pair go to Paris to try to find Sophie’s mother. Once they arrive in the city, they are aided by Matteo and his band of “rooftoppers,” urchins who live in the sky. Together, they scour the city for Sophie’s mother before Sophie is caught and sent back to London, and most importantly, before she loses hope.
