I can’t even start to describe how amazing this book is. Well, it has a very original story line and Katherine Rundell has a way with words that make fall head over heels in love with the characters. I have to say, my favourite characters was Safi and Sophie.

The book is about a girl who is found floating around the ocean in a cello case after a ship has sunk, her mother was on that ship and drowned. But Sophie still believes that she is alive. Then her and her guardian Charles set out to Paris to go mother hunting.

This book was a present from my best friend for Christmas, and it is by far the best book I have read this year, and it is definitely better than any of the books i read last year. This book has had really good reviews from other book bloggers and book stores. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves adventurous and mysterious books. I give this book a whopping 10 out of 10 stars and is perfect for both genders. If you have read this book, please contact me in the comments and tell me what you thought.
