Running on the Roof of the World

This book is for the junior or young adult reader and can be compared to the adult book Kite Runner due to the themes and style. The author draws from her experience growing up between India and England. She began writing this book whilst she lived in the Himalayas. “I focus on my beating heart. I know my Mum and Dad are still alive. My heart would feel different if they weren’t...wouldn’t it?” After twelve year old Tash’s parents are seized by soldiers, she and her best friend Sam resolve to rescue them. But to do so, they must escape Tibet, cross the mountains and seek help from the Dalai Lama in India - so the extraordinary journey begins...” Full of adventure, survival and courage within a setting that still happens today – Tibetans fleeing and of a persecuted people. Jess Butterworth brings an authenticity, after all – she’s heard their stories first hand.
