The Lemonade War - Jacqueline Davies

Evan has learned that you need a permit to sell lemonade and that the only reason he and Jessie had gotten away with it before is because that law wasn't generally enforced in residential areas. Trying the same thing right near a bunch of shops did not go nearly as well. And Jessie has just learned why stores generally put limits on "buy X, get Y free" deals.


Jessie's math abilities come across more clearly in this book than they did in the second. It's also clearer that the author intends for her to be interpreted as autistic, although the word is never used. (I double-checked this, and the author confirmed it in an interview.)
