The Lemonade War by Jacqueline Davies
In Jacqueline Davies’ The Lemonade War, Jessie Treski and her brother Evan have a pretty good relationship…usually. But when Evan finds out that Jessie will be skipping third grade and will share his fourth-grade classroom, he gets pretty angry. It’s bad enough that his sister gets all the good grades, but now she is going to mess up things with his friends as well. His anger grows…and grows…and then he explodes, saying awful things to her that he knows he will regret later. Jessie responds and their argument swells until they make a wager with high odds, all riding on who can sell the most lemonade in the last five days before school starts.
The Lemonade War is a fun, light-hearted book that would be perfect for summer reading. You can read more about the book and see the book trailer, brain teasers and more at www.lemonadewar.com. A second book, The Lemonade Crime, has recently been published.
