This engaging tale by Jacqueline Davies is “filled with real-life problems that relate to math, getting along with siblings and friends, [and] dealing with pride” (School Library Journal). Evan’s little sister Jessie may be a smartypants, but he usually doesn’t mind her. That is, until he hears Jessie’s going to skip third grade and be in his year at school. Now, with tempers flaring, their friendly lemonade-selling competition is turning into an all-out war.

I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.
This is a cute story about how sibling rivalry gets out of control when the younger is advanced two grade levels and now they are in the same class. Oh no! There is no allowance for fair play when things turn into a war. The kids are highly competitive yet they also have a sense of companionship from the divorce of their parents. The kids finally work things out yet there are a few whopping crimes committed along the way.
