The Lemonade War
The book begins with Evan in his parents' basement, avoiding his younger sister, Jessie. It is revealed he is annoyed about a letter notifying their mother that Jessie is skipping third grade to be in Evan's fourth grade class. Jessie is excited about moving up, but Evan is irritated because his sister is good at math and is worried she might embarrass him. As payback, he makes a lemonade stand with his friend Scott, rudely rebuffing Jessie. In retaliation, Jessie sets up her own lemonade stand, and gets a friend, Megan, to help out. The two siblings concoct a plan to earn $100, and whoever has the more successful lemonade stand gets the loser's earnings. Jessie uses her math and business skills to set goals (such as creating a franchise scheme with many girls selling lemonade for her) and Evan utilizes his skills at talking to people. The five-day war takes a disastrous turn when Jessie mixes dead fruit flies in Evan's lemonade, leading to his sales tanking. Evan steals Jessie's earnings in revenge, but then loses the money while he attends a friend's pool party. The two siblings reconcile by expressing regret for their actions towards each other.
