She doesn't make many friends but she and Wyatt Langmore, despite a rough start, end up forming a friendship.

As time goes on, Charlotte learns more about her parents' business. While she struggles with it, she supports them by keeping their secret and protecting them when she can. Even by the end of Season 3, she helps them continue to launder money in the casino by taking money from Buddy's grave and putting it into the casino.

In Season 4, Charlotte steps up more in the family business. She pays less attention to school and doesn't even take the SAT's.

She fights for him to come back with them.

At the end of Season 4, Charlotte agrees to move in with her grandfather along with Jonah, because he promises them safety and they want to get out of their family problems, believing that they'll never end. Ultimately, Wendy convinces them to come back to her and they reunite as a family.
