A must-read book!

Review by Elana B.

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.

Meaningful and quite a page turner

Review by CEF

This was a very interesting book. I loved how it brought in a very important tropic and thou it did not tell every major detail it did talk about the Holocaust. It also had young and older people talking together, which is something that we can all learn from. Additionally, it teaches us the very important massage of not judging before getting to know someone. Yet the book was bot only a insightful and meaningful story, bhut was an intriguing mystery. The perfect blead made this book near impossible to put down.
