In her senior year of high school, her family moves across the country to Seattle, turning her already-small world upside down. She feels alone and lost… But then she finds a box of decades-old love letters between Martha and Frederick; she becomes best friends with her new midget neighbor, Miss T; and she meets Hans, a very symmetric German exchange student. But summer ends abruptly when she is forced to make a decision that will change her life. Forever. A warmhearted and humorous coming of age story, Lost in Seattle, is a celebration of family, love, friendship, motherhood, and that special bond between daughters, mothers, and women across generations. “If you love a fast-paced story, with snappy dialogue and lots of humor and heart, this is the book for you.”"Charlotte Roth caught my attention with the snappy chapter titles. She kept it with snappy dialogue, which I adore, unique characters, which I fell in love with, and a story filled with heartbreaking, humorous, and heartwarming moments. It hasn't been easy for Eleanor, living with her tree hugging, 'hippie-like' parents. She's not happy when they move her from the east coast all the way to Washington state. After an exhausting cross-country drive with her parents in a U-Haul truck, they finally reach their destination, only to find the truck is filled with another family's belongings. After five days of being stranded with nothing of their own and limited funds, they finally decide to get some use out of the unclaimed contents of the truck. When they find an iron mailbox full of letters from 30 years ago, the two women in the family decide to read them. The tales of a young couple's struggles three decades earlier weave a complex and interesting pattern into this already interesting web of entertaining story line. This first story of Ms. Roth reads like it's her tenth, with crisp, clean writing. I'm looking forward to reading more from her. I give it 5 stars and high recommendations!"

    Love this!I didn't want this book to end. I vote a follow up book. :) Having just moved to Washington last year I could relate to the apprehension.

    This is a story about finding oneself in life. Ella just graduated from high school and is embarking on life as an adult. She finally meets her first real crush and has her first heartbreak. She experiences death of a close loved one. She experiences the joy of the bond between a mother and child, and the pain of watching a true friend go through unspeakable heartache.It's a coming-of-age story that will stay with you long after the book has ended. I became a huge fan of Charlotte Roth with this book and have read two others by her since. Her writing style is witty and engaging and she never leaves you hanging, but somehow finds a way to leave you wanting more of her stories.I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys YA dramas or romance novels, or just a fun, lighthearted read.

    A coming of age story set in 2012 & goes back in time to the eighties in Seattle, WA. A tale of two stories intertwined. One based on thirty year old love letters between Martha & Frederick, the other revolves around seventeen-year-old Ella and her hippie parents. The secondary storyline revolved around love letters is complex, & a intriguing tale intricately weaved into a entertaining storyline. Characters are witty, & one-of-kind. Overall, a sweet, humorous, & heartwarming fun read. Looking forward to reading the next novel in this series if the author decides to write it. I volunteerily reviewed an advanced reading copy of this book.

    This book is a listed as a YA/coming-of-age story but I'm not sure I agree entirely. Yes, the style and language, which I really enjoyed, is definitively YA but after I finally put it down, I felt ii had a more grown-up feel to it. Eleanore is a shy 'old' teenager who is far from happy when her parents tell her that they're moving across the country, away from her home and a few but loyal friends. When they arrive in Seattle, she feels alone and lost, even more so when the family realize that they have been hauling the wrong U-Haul truck along. Everything is lost. But, then one day, Ella finds an old box of letters in the shed and she begins to read the captivating love story of Frank and Margaret. Soon, her mom and neighbor join her and they form a secret book club where they take turns reading the letters, dated back in the 1980's. In real life, Ella finally steps out of the house and meets Hans, a German exchange student, and they fall in love over night. But Hans has to leave the next day for Europe and Ella is devastated and heartbroken. No spoilers here... but what happens next will bring all the strong female in the story closer together despite the generations gap and different time zones.I read in another review that the ending kinda suggests that there might be a sequel, and I would love that, but it is a stand alone and lovely as it is. But one can always hope.

    Couldn't put it down. Read the whole thing in two days. The scene where they all try to speak German is hilarious! Wonderful and warm story.

    I just finished reading this on my Kindle and loved it. The story is touching, somewhat emotional in parts, and generally just a good book. I am impressed with the character development and the obvious theme of unconditional love and friendship. It made me smile, laugh and cry. Highly recommended.

    I feel like a creep for giving such a poor review. It started off good, but about halfway thru I started noticing lots of typos and grammar issues. Some inconsistencies in the story. Far too much use of the Fword. The plot suddenly became very predictable. The characters personalities seemed to abruptly change, then go back again. I was disappointed overall with a book I liked at first.

    Loved this book. So full of humor and heart. Easily read and a real page turner. Very different from what I normally read, but I definitely felt entertained and the story made me both cry and laugh. I cross my fingers that Charlotte is working on part two, (no pressure :-))

    This novel really surprised me. It's a story within a story. There's the story of a family of three, and there's the story of a couple told through letters. I loved both stories, and I didn't want the stories to end.

    Decent story, but needed editing. It was just too long and rambling at times, and also had a relatively major continuity error.

    Liked this book but ending seemed to drop off a cliff.
