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.

Great but…

Review by BizzyIzzy

This was an amazing book! It was full of twists and turns, was very interesting and well written. This was one of my favorite PJ our way books yet. But parts of it were sad and did not make sense.

Awsome book!

Review by NettaAmani

it's a really good book about a girl named Charlie who tries to find out more about her great aunt, Lottie. she also learns a lot about the holocaust, and it is very interesting. it also talks about Charlie's life in school and her( and Lottie's!) passion for music. i would add more but i don't want to spoil anything so you'll have to read it to find out. overall it is a super good book!+
