The Lemonade War

TIttle : The Lemonade War

Author : Jacqueline Davies

Genre : Realistic Fiction

Rate : ★★★★★

Summary : Even Triski is good at understanding people. Jessie Triski, Even’s younger sister is on the other hand, math-smart. They were having a boring summer break, until Even finds out it was going to be horrible when school  starts, and their complicated war begins.

I really liked this book since I was in third grade, when my teacher read it out loud to the class. I also have a young sister, like Even, so I can understand how he really feels about Jessie, his little sister. I would really recommend it to the people who has siblings, and of course, people who doesn’t too.
