Book Overview

Family, fairness, and . . . lemonade?This first installment in the best-selling Lemonade War series follows a battling brother-sister duo as they start competing businesses, gather savvy marketing tips, tackle practical math, learn business terms, and dig into a good old sibling rivalry.

When Evan Treski finds out that his younger sister is skipping third grade and joining his fourth-grade class, he is not happy. The last thing he wants is Jessie showing him up with her perfect grades, and he definitely doesn't need her help getting his lemonade stand up and running . . . even if the business side of things has got him confused.

Jessie doesn't understand why Evan won't team up with her, but she's got a plan to set up her own lemonade stand to prove her worth. Now if she can just figure out how to attract customers as easily as Evan can, she'll be able to show him what he's missing.

Can these siblings do it all on their own, or will they need each other after all? And will their lemonade war ever end? Brimming with ideas for making money at any business, definitions of business terms, charts, diagrams, and even math problems, this fresh, funny, emotionally charged novel explores how arguments can escalate beyond anyone's intent--and the unique rivalry (and partnership) that comes with having siblings.

   My daughter loved this book
My daughter loved this book! My daughter loved it! I didn 't even have to ask her to read, she would just hide in her room until she finished it, then ask me if she could get another one from this series!

   Great Series
My eight-year-old son enjoys reading these stories as well as having them read to them. It is about a brother and sister who usually have to solve their differences to overcome a problem.

   Exceptional middle grade novel
I have not read the entire series, but I am very impressed with the quality of this first novel in the series. Kudos to the author for presenting a positive view of entrepreneurship in an age when children are brought up on a diet of movies about the evil developer who wants to build a shopping mall on the Wildern preserve. This makes this book a stand out alone. The author weaves several sub-plots and themes skillfully into the story. When I teach this book my students learn about reading between the lines, fresh and imaginative exposition, skilful and well-paced metaphors, as well as neurodivergent children, learning disabilities, conflict resolution and first crushes. Terrific Book '', highly recommended.

   An instant Favorite
I read it to my third grade class for a character study unit and it was a big hit. I bought a copy for my son and he loved it. We read together the first two. This is one that he reads over and over again. He started reading it at 9 and is now 12!

   Nasty and unkind sibling argument
I love business vocabulary and math incorporated into the storyline. I thought it would have been a great compliment to our school work, but thought there were a lot of mean undertones between the siblings. A lot of hate and malicious behavior. The story could have delivered the same message without so much nastiness.

   Great book- definitely perfect for upper elementary
This book is perfect for any kid ranging from the 3rd to the 5th grade. It is perfect for any kid. The dual narratives, the emphasis on math and marketing, the depiction of sibling rivalry, all make for a book that every kid can find something to enjoy!

   Great condition.
This book was shipped quickly and was exactly as described. It was required summer reading for my soon to be fourth grader. Neither he nor his brother loved the story, but it had a good lesson.

   I wasn't ready for this book!
This was a book that was read at my son's school school nationwide. I personally did not care for the book because the children in this book were awful. Always bickering and always mean to each other. At the end there is a cliffhanger and you have to read the next book to find out what happened.
