I think anyone who has ever experienced sibling rivalry will enjoy The Lemonade Wars by Jacqueline Davies. There is something unique about wanting to beat a brother or sister at something! If you are an only child, you will still enjoy the story and anyone who is competitive will have strong feelings about who they want to win the war. While I was reading the book I found that I could relate to Evan and Jessie for different reasons, I wanted them both to put their stubbornness aside and work together. I like that the book made me think about how we act sometimes and that not only do we hurt someone else, but we are usually hurt in the end, too. The book is filled with interesting ideas that could help anyone have a lemonade stand over the summer. Each chapter starts with a vocabulary word that has to do with business, so it was fun to learn some new words. This is a great book for people ages 8 and up. This was a fast read that I was able to finish it in less than a day. It is part of a series, so I look forward to finding out what happens to this brother and sister in the next books. Crack open the pages and see if the Treskis can sell you on their lemonade ideas.
Has anyone else read The Lemonade Wars by Jacqueline Davies? Or another book by this author? What did you think?
Happy Reading! ~L
