The Lemonade War by Jacqueline Davies

Five stars

For a full hour, he poured lemonade. The world is a thirsty place, he thought as he nearly emptied his fourth pitcher of the day. And I am the Lemonade King.

Fourth-grader Evan Treski is people-smart. He’s good at talking with people, even grownups. His younger sister, Jessie, on the other hand, is math-smart, but not especially good with people. So when the siblings’ lemonade stand war begins, there really is no telling who will win—or even if their fight will ever end. Brimming with savvy marketing tips for making money at any business, definitions of business terms, charts, diagrams, and even math problems, this fresh, funny, emotionally charged novel subtly explores how arguments can escalate beyond anyone’s intent.

What a cute and fun little story! I loved the sibling relation between Evan and Jessie, even if they were at odds throughout the book. They each had their reasons for being upset which was worked out in the end. You could still see the love that was clearly there between the two of them and I really liked that. Too often books these days portray siblings hating each other and rarely show true, genuine relationships.

The bet was super fun! And centered around lemonade stands? What a great read!

I would definitely recommend this book as cute, clean, and super fun to read! Very well written as well.

“Sit back and watch the money roll in.”
