KMLF: Jess Butterworth - When The Mountains Roared

Details

A vivid, warm and atmospheric adventure set in the mountains of India, about a girl who is determined to protect the wild leopards of the mountain from poachers.

When Ruby’s dad uproots her from Australia to set up a hotel in the mountains of India, Ruby is devastated. Not only are they living in a run-down building in the middle of the wilderness surrounded by scorpions, bears and leopards, but Ruby is sure that India will never truly feel like home – not without her mum there.

Ever since her mum died, Ruby has been afraid. Of cars. Of the dark. Of going to sleep and never waking up.

But then the last remaining leopards of the mountain are threatened and everything changes. Ruby vows to do all she can to protect them – if she can only overcome her fears…

"Butterworth’s vivid, energetic descriptions of the Himalayan landscape and wildlife are wonderful to read. Wrought from her own childhood memories and family stories handed down from her grandparents, you can really feel the abiding love and passion that sit at the heart of this book." – Jill Murphy, The Book Bag
