The Lemonade War by Jacqueline Davies

From Goodreads: Evan Treski is people-smart. He is good at talking with people, even grownups. His younger sister, Jessie, on the other hand, is math-smart—but not especially good at understanding people. She knows that feelings are her weakest subject. So when their lemonade war begins, there really is no telling who will win—and even more important, if their fight will ever end.

Here is a clever blend of humor and math fun. As it captures the one-of-a-kind bond between brother and sister, this poignant novel subtly explores how arguments can escalate beyond anyone’s intent.

My Two Cents: I loved the imperfect and realistic sibling relationship in this book and the way little bits of math and business were woven throughout. The alternating viewpoints help readers see both sides of the story really effectively, and the sibling relationship, with all its ups and downs, is really lovely foundation for all the fun and learning that takes place in the pages.

Grade Level: 3-5
