    Quick Review: I wish I had read the first book in this series, because this book was awesome! Who doesn't love a good book about kids getting into a lemonade war? Especially a childhood courtroom! Sure, it sounds dull but it was an amazing premise! It's fun, fast paced and easy to read. It's a great middle grade read that adults can enjoy too!

    Jessie and her older brother Evan came to terms with gifted Jessie skipping third grade and joining Evan in the school's only fourth grade class, but it took a war to accomplish it. The two siblings and their friends squared off in a winner-take-all lemonade war in Davies' first book about the Treskis, The Lemonade War. I enjoyed that book but was frustrated that the issue of the missing money was never addressed.

The two siblings and their friends squared off in a winner-take-all lemonade war in Davies' first book about the Treskis, The Lemonade War. I enjoyed that book but was frustrated that the issue of the missing money was never addressed. Davies' latest work resolves the issue after Jessie, who has just read a book on the American justice system, serves Scott Spencer with papers charging him with stealing the money and demanding that he appear for trial by their classmates. Jessie assigns roles and explains the proceedings, sets the time and place for the trial, and prepares her argument as the plaintiff's attorney. She is confident of victory until her best friend Megan, Evan's secret crush, comes to Scott's defense. The legal information shared in this novel is age appropriate and plausible, unlike that in John Grisham's Theodore Boone, Kid Lawyer. The trial, its results, and the subsequent actions of both Evan and Scott point to the theme that one can be in the right and still be wrong, and vice versa. Young readers will appreciate that Davies does not condescend to her audience, offering no quick and simple solutions and presenting multi-faceted characters who learn and grow through their mistakes.

    Never having read The Lemonade Wars, this sequel by Davis succeeds in offering up a thirst-quenching tale that can stand on its own two feet. That said, I want to read The Lemonade Wars and imagine that readers who are coming to "the crime" after having done so will enjoy it all the more. Themes of symmetry, justice, and fairness are woven through-out this pitch-perfect novel for the 3rd and 4th grade set.

One of my favorite extension ideas is to have your students plan, organize, and run their own lemonade stand, with proceeds going to a charity of their choice.

    J. Davies wrote another awesome book that's sure to keep any kid's attention. I read this book with my son (9ys. old) and he loved it! Couldn't put it down -- even during summer break. The sibling relationship/rivalry, Evan's first "crush" and school drama between friends will connect with any 3rd-5th grade kid. We loved the story and can't wait to dive into the next Lemonade Wars series. J. Davies wrote another awesome book that's sure to keep any kid's attention.

    The Lemonade Crime is a very interesting book. It's a quick read and anyone would have fun with it! It could make more sense to you if you read the first book but you really don't need to! I hope everyone ends up in the recliner with your nose stuck in this book like I did! The Lemonade Crime is a very interesting book. It's a quick read and anyone would have fun with it!

    Picking up where The Lemonade War ended, this sequel tells the story of Jessie and Evan's efforts to prove Scott Spencer stole $208 from them at the end of the summer. Jessie sets up a mock courtroom on the playground after school, assigning the roles of judge, jury, and witnesses to members of their 4th grade classroom. Acting as Evan's lawyer, she sets out to prove Scott guilty.

Jessie sets up a mock courtroom on the playground after school, assigning the roles of judge, jury, and witnesses to members of their 4th grade classroom. Acting as Evan's lawyer, she sets out to prove Scott guilty. Evan, meanwhile, struggles with his friends' casual attitude toward the theft and with their willingness to remain friends with Scott in the face of his apparent guilt. Inside a well-written story, Davies has once again crafted genuine characters in Jessie, Evan, and Scott. Jessie obsesses over her plans as much as she does her schoolwork, focusing entirely on the logical and missing the social aspects of the situation, as very intelligent children often do. Evan, however, lets his emotions determine his actions when his anger gets the best of him. Readers also gain insight into Scott's behavior after witnessing interactions between Scott and his parents. The actions of each child are true to his or her personality inside the situation. Kids who liked The Lemonade War will be eager to get their hands on this book, not just to learn the truth of the missing money, but to revisit these dynamic characters.

    This is the sequel to The Lemonade War, a lesson in economics cleverly disguised in a story about a brother/sister lemonade stand rivalry. Like the first, The Lemonade Crime starts every chapter off with a definition-in this case, one pertaining to the different aspects of court proceedings, as the students of 4-O attempt to figure out who stole the lemonade stand money that goes missing at the end of the first book.

Sadly, I didn't really enjoy this second installment. I found it to be trying too hard. It didn't capture the magic of the first book and the ending and "resolution" to the story seemed rushed. The author admits in the jacket flap that she wrote this book in response to readers who wanted to know what happened to the money, but it just didn't feel like it came from the same creative, organic spark that the first book did. It is a good basic introduction to the concept of trial by jury, and I think most kids and teachers would probably enjoy it.

    The lemonade crime, by Jacqueline Davies is a justice seeking adventure with the Treskie siblings. In the first book, “The Lemonade War,” a lot of money is stolen from Evan and Jessie. Now they are determined to prove that it was Scott Spencer. Jessie makes a courtroom from recess equipment. She gives everyone jobs and they have a trial. I like this book and I want to read the rest of the series. I like the first better but I still love this one.

I love how organized Jessie is and I wish I could be as organized. I also love that they don’t give up when things get hard. I think the theme of this book is to be honest, because Scott isn’t very honest and it gets him into trouble. Jessie is very honest and never tells a lie. I also think that anouther theme is to work hard and it will pay off. Jessie and Evan work really hard to find out who took the money and to get it back. Overall, I think this is a great book.

    I think this book is awesome because of the small court they had in the book mostly because I knew nothing about court until now. I like how this 4th grader set up everything for his brother so he can get his money back but I never knew a sister would do all this for her brother,would you? Now back to the small court I like how there was juries,witnesses,a lawyer, and a judge that all seems pretty cool to me and I like the suspense,who going to win the court stuff like that.

I think you should read it too.

    Evan and Jessie are siblings who are convinced that Scott Spencer took something from them. In the previous book, THE LEMONADE WAR, money made from selling lemonade was stolen. This sequel is a follow-up in which readers get to see what’s going on with the missing money. Accusing Scott of theft isn’t the easiest thing since Evan and Scott are friends, plus Scott is popular.

People take sides, argue about who’ll be the judge and attorney, and are shocked when the truth about the money comes out. This is a delightful sequel. Children are sure to learn about the legal process since Jessie and company aim to adhere to the law. Dynamics between friends and weaving a web of secrecy and lies are other themes found in this book.

    This book alluded to some things that happened in the first book The Lemonade War (which I have not read). But it was mostly easy to follow in spite of me missing the first book. Each chapter began with an easy-to-understand definition of a judicial term, and the following chapter showed in playing out in the kids' real life. I really liked how this book's plot was very realistic and engaging and the characters were very believable.

    "The Lemonade Crime" is an exciting book. At first I thought that the main person would win but then it totally changed. I was anxious to know what happened next. I chose this book because I read the first book,"The Lemonade War" and I liked it. I would recommend this book to anybody who likes realistic fiction. Students can relate to their problems happening at school. After this book is a book called "The Bell Bandit" which is a sequel to book 1 and 2.

    I really liked The Lemonade War, the first book in this series. There was a great infusion of math and the story even had a plot twist or two. This book continues that story, which isn't as interesting this go around. This time, there is a focus on the legal process and vocabulary related to that. They still sneak some math in, which is always great, but it's not as much or as good. If your kids are really attached to the characters of Evan and Jessie, they will love this one.

    I was surprised. Usually books always have a surprise when someone gets caught doing something big. But it was the total obvious! Which also made it a surprise because you usually expect the obvious to not be the answer. But in this case it's different. But it's revealed in a different than you'd expect, again.

    Super smart Jesse takes her brother Evan’s case of the stolen lemonade stand money to court. Literally. When she sets up a play yard court for their fourth grade class after Evan accuses Scott of stealing during a pool party at the end of summer. A charming, thoughtful story of fairness and justice, even if the characters sometimes act a little above their ages.

    In this second book in The Lemonade War series, the entire fourth grade participates in a trial organized by Jessie to uncover the truth about the stolen lemonade stand earnings. The third-person POV alternates between the brother and sister. The author's masterful ability to show, not tell, brings the story to life. Legal principles are woven into the story.

    Even better than the first in the series, this book teaches valuable lessons about assuming, hearsay, burden of proof, revenge, and forgiveness.

    Evan and his little sister Jessie are both in the fourth grade, not because they're twins, but rather because Jessie skipped a grade. Jessie is particularly good at math, very focused, feels strongly that things should be fair, and believes that rules are meant to be followed. When one of their classmates, Scott, announces that he now owns a fancy new Xbox 2020, Evan sees red. He knows exactly where Scott got the money for it - Scott stole that money, over two hundred dollars, from Evan's short Evan and his little sister Jessie are both in the fourth grade, not because they're twins, but rather because Jessie skipped a grade. Jessie is particularly good at math, very focused, feels strongly that things should be fair, and believes that rules are meant to be followed. When one of their classmates, Scott, announces that he now owns a fancy new Xbox 2020, Evan sees red. He knows exactly where Scott got the money for it - Scott stole that money, over two hundred dollars, from Evan's shorts when they were swimming at a friend's house. Evan doesn't have any proof that Scott did it, but it's the only explanation. Then Jessie comes up with a plan: she's going to bring the truth to light in a court of law created by her and her classmates. I checked this out from my library's Overdrive without realizing that the library owned the first book in audio as well, or I'd have started with the first book instead. It looks like I'll be listening to this series out of order. And I do plan on listening to the first book. I enjoyed this second book in the series more than I expected to, considering that Middle Grade fiction usually reads too young for me (yes, I know that's the point - I'm not the intended audience for these books and I realize that). Jessie and Evan were great characters, both flawed in their own ways but still good kids. Jessie didn't quite feel like she fit in. I sympathized with her trouble figuring out where to hang out during recess (or was it lunch? I can't remember). The way she really got into her courtroom plan reminded me a bit of myself. I could imagine her tossing and turning in bed, unable to stop thinking about all the things she still needed to do before the trial. She'd taken on the responsibility of both setting up as realistic a trial as possible and acting as Evan's lawyer. Evan was really into basketball and had a bit of a crush on one of his classmates, Megan, who was also his sister's friend. I hated the way Evan acted in one particular scene, but the good thing was that he hated how he'd acted too, once it was all over, and took the time to try to do something about it. This ended in a way that was more peaceful and friendly than I expected, and I liked the layers it added to the characters. (view spoiler)[The peeks at Scott's home life hinted at his motives, even if Evan couldn't see them, and I'm looking forward to finding out character information I missed by skipping the first book. (hide spoiler)] One nice detail: each chapter began with a definition of a term or phrase relating to courtroom proceedings (for example, "perjury"). Usually it was something illustrated by a character's words or actions in that particular chapter. (Original review posted on A Library Girl's Familiar Diversions.)

'You and me!' he said, poking Scott Spencer in the chest so hard, Scott took a step back. 'On the court. The basketball court."' I thought this scene played a major role in the book because right after the verdict was not guilty which didn't favor Evan Treski. He instead challenged Scott Spencer to a game of basketball. When it was over Scott Spencer got injured by Evan but Evan felt bad and both Scott Spencer and Evan made up. This book is a great book for readers who like action and suspense.

    Lemonade War Crime means there is a crime that happened after the war, the war is about Evan, and Jessie competing against each other to see who can earn the most money by selling lemonade. This book is about one week ago, two hundred and eight dollars disappeared from the pocket of Evan Treski’s shorts.

I would give this book five stars because the detail in it makes you feel like you are sitting there watching it all happen. If you love an interesting and very well detailed book this is the book for you.
