About the Author

Katherine Rundell is the author of Rooftoppers, Cartwheeling in Thunderstorms (a Boston Globe-Horn Book Award winner), The Wolf Wilder, and The Explorer. She grew up in Zimbabwe, Brussels, and London, and is currently a Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford. She begins each day with a cartwheel and believes that reading is almost exactly the same as cartwheeling: it turns the world upside down and leaves you breathless. In her spare time, she enjoys walking on tightropes and trespassing on the rooftops of Oxford colleges.

Reviews

"Cartwheeling in Thunderstorms is the work of a writer with an utterly distinctive voice and a wild imagination. I admire her novels very much, and I hope they find the success they deserve. I'm certainly looking forward to her next."--Philip Pullman, author of the His Dark Materials series

*"With debut novel Rooftoppers (2013), Rundell showed her capacity to write an entertaining story featuring a courageous female protagonist; this second novel surpasses by virtue of its striking, soaring prose."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review * "A gripping, magical, and heartwarming tale of resilience, friendship, and hope."--Publishers Weekly, starred review * "Rundell's language soars in this portrait of a fierce and largehearted girl."--Booklist, starred review "Instead of making Zimbabwe some mysterious "other" place, she imbues it with color, love and vibrancy...Cartwheeling in Thunderstorms offers readers a sympathetic and enticing portrait of a part of the world they might not have heard of before reading this book, but will certainly be intrigued by ever after."--BookPage "Katherine Rundell once again demonstrates her ability to weave a story with a strong, determined female character...This one's for readers who appreciate the classic elements of storytelling with a twist."--Shelf Awareness "Rundell's vivid and compelling prose brings both worlds to life on a visceral level and propels her characters forward. Readers will be engaged by Will's voice (and her colorful linguistic twists), ache for her through her sorrow and loss, and celebrate her newly sparked confidence and resolve. Warning: there will be cartwheels!"--School Library Journal, starred review "Rundell writes with a beautiful voice...both gripping and profound."--BCCB "Rundell's finely drawn etchings of the people in Will's sphere and rich descriptions of African colonial farm life sprawl across the page in sensual largesse."--Horn Book Magazine "Cartwheeling in Thunderstorms is a treasure of a book."--VOYA "Cartwheeling in Thunderstorms is the work of a writer with an utterly distinctive voice and a wild imagination. I admire her novels very much, and I hope they find the success they deserve. I'm certainly looking forward to her next."--Philip Pullman, author of the His Dark Materials series
