This book was really good. Charlie was doing a report about a family member and she chose to write about Lottie. But Lottie had a mysterious past. She was in the holocaust and her only living family member was her sister, Rose. Rose is Charlie's grandmother now. When Charlie discovers more clues about getting closer to find information about Lottie, they discover a surprising secret.

I would read more books by this author.

This book made me think more about the importance of family.

It felt like a mystery to find out more about her long lost aunt, she would find out one thing and it would make her mind completely change. This talks a lot about family and the importance of "knowing your family". It was probably very hard for Charlie and the rest of her family to have someone close to them who could be lost at sea, or maybe even having a wonderful life, but they never new.

This book was really good. I liked that it switched between reading the Journal that Charlie found and Charlie's point of view. It was a good story. It was exciting and creative.

I loved this book so much! It is probably
my favorite book of all time! I would recommend this book no doubt to anyone but probably not if they are under 8. I might be a little dark and confusing for them. Even my mom read it! (Because I said she had to) Again this is one of the best the best Holocaust books i've read because its no too scary but still says truth.

This book is about a girl named Charlie who does a project on her great-aunt Lottie. But she wants to know more about her ancestor than just doing a project. Read this book if you want, but it isn't as interesting as it seems.

Everyone who ever lived MUST read this.

Searching for Lottie is a book about the Holocaust and how important it is to spend as much time with your family as possible. You never know when you may lose the ones you love.
I spent a whole hour lying on the couch with my cat and reading this book. It was beyond amazing! It had a plot twist which I think is something very important in a story. If you don't have a plot twist usually the book could be guessed about and usually they would be right.

great book

I loved how this book took place in the 2000s but still taught you about the holocaust. I also loved this book because it was a mystery but also a middle schoolers life. I would really recommend searching for Lotty to 10 to 12 year olders.

Very Good

This is a very good book and also kind of sad. Charolotte, the main character, is confident that Aunt Lottie is still alive and would like to find out more about that part of her family’s history. It is a great book and I would highly recommend it.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It taught me a lot more about history and how important your ancestors
can be. I am not really interested in history, but this book was still really good because of the modern day story line. I would recommend this book to anyone who was interested in music and basically everyone else too! :)

This is a book about a girl named Charlie Roth who looks for information about Lottie, her great-aunt, for a family project in 7th grade. I think the only sad part is when they meet Dr. Nathan Kulka who has Alzheimer's and can't remember anything. When I first picked up the book, I thought it had Nazis and guns and concentration camps and blah-blah-blah. But it doesn't, which I like the fact about.

Searching for Lottie was amazing; I couldn’t stop reading it! This book is about a girl named Charlie who writes a report about her Great Aunt Lottie. Lottie goes to a music school during World War II and her family loses contact with her right before they escape to New York. They think she died, but did she? You should definitely read this book to find out.
