The Lemonade War
By: Jacqueline Davies
This book is the sequel to The Lemonade War. This book can be read without having read the first book. Evan and his sister, Jessie are accusing Scott Spencer of stealing $208 from Evan. Jessie sets up a mock courtroom on the playground after school assigning the roles of judge, jury and witness to members of their 4th grade class. Jessie, acting as Evan’s lawyer sets out to prove Scott guilty. Evan, however, lets his emotions determine his actions when his anger gets the best of him. The characters shine individually in this story and the story is nicely played out.
I picked this book for review because of the upcoming:
