Evan and Jessie are brother and sister who are fourteen months apart. To Evan's alarm, his little sister is going to join him in the same class this fall because she's skipping grades. It's going to be embarrassing, particularly because she's so much smarter than he is. She can do difficult math problems fast and without a calculator, while he's bad at math. Jessie may be intelligent, but she's not savvy with people. She doesn't make friends easily and doesn't notice social cues on whether or not people like her or are making fun of her. Evan, who is a people person, has helped her with that, but he's no longer willing to assist her.

Stemming from Evan's discomfort about Jessie skipping grades, he's mean to her. With hurt and anger between them, they start a lemonade war to see who can make the most money selling lemonade. They recruit other people, move booths to different areas of the neighborhood, and they play dirty. Even though it's summer and they should be enjoying themselves and their lemonade businesses, things get real ugly between the two.

This is a finely crafted book. The dynamics between Evan and Jessie felt very real and both characters came to life. Sibling rivalry, misunderstandings, and other themes play well into the story. The business and money aspects of the novel should prove interesting to children. I'd love to read the other books in this series.

My 10 year old daughter and I enjoyed reading this story together. The story line was clever. I did think the author could have phrased some of the business concepts presented at the beginning of each chapter in a more child friendly manner. But, overall, we really enjoyed the story.

The Lemonade War

Jacqueline Davies

If you like EXCITING books then this book is for you. The Lemonade War by Jacqueline Davies is a FANTASTIC book. It has thirst quenching lemonade and the amount of money they earn is over the top. When Evan gets a letter in the mail EVERYTHING changes. This book will get you thinking of what you're going to do this summer.

Evan one of the main characters is the good guy or protagonist. He does change or he's a dynamic character. Evan isn't the best in math. He's 14 months older than his sister Jessie. Evan is in 4th grade. He called himself the LEMONADE KING. One of Evans best friends is Paul.Jessie the other main character is the good guy or protagonist. She does change or she's a dynamic character. Jessie was GREAT at math. Every time she gets really stressed out she reads Charlottes Web. Jessie got a lot of money while selling lemonade. Jessie is in 2nd grade. One of Jessie's best friends is Megan. Megan a secondary character is a good guy or an protagonist. She doesn't change or she's a static character. Megan is best friends with Jessie. Megan made a lot of money just like Jessie. Megan doesn't know about the war. In the end because of all of the hard work she takes Jessie to to the beach.

This book is TERRIFIC it has an important lesson to not let a letter get in the way of your relationship with one of your siblings. It was so realistic that I felt like I was in the book. Throughout the whole story it was so descriptive that I had pictures in my mind. I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars and 5 thumbs up. I would recommend this book to 9 and up. I guarantee that once you read this book you'll NEVER EVER forget this book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Grand daughter and I reading for one of her independent reading class assignments. We live in different parts of the country so We e-mail and Face- Time to discuss and share. Author Davies is a wonderful writer. Parents may even find some ideas on helping with math homework!
A book about siblings, growing up and love.
Enjoy!!

It was cute. The author's use of business strategies was clever. I'm sure children find this book a lot of fun. I wonder if the father is explored more in the sequels as the reader really connects with the children when he is first brought up. I also felt like the mother probably wouldn't be working so much if it weren't for the father.
