Overview

The Lemonade Crime (The Lemonade War Series #2) by Jacqueline Davies

Following the laws of our legal system, Evan and Jessie’s fourth grade class concocts a courtroom on the playground, putting Scott Spencer, alleged thief, on trial. They create a legitimate courtroom—with a judge, witnesses, a jury of their peers—and surprising consequences.
   As she explores the difficulties of fairness, Jacqueline Davies once again reveals how good she is at understanding the complex emotions of children this age.

This book features a teaser chapter from book three of the Lemonade War series, The Bell Bandit.

Lemonade Crimes is a wonderful fiction book for students grades 2nd to 5th. It is the second book in a series of three by Jacqueline Davies. A student in a fourth grade classroom has just gotten an X Box 20/20. All of the kids thought this was very cool, except for Jessie and Evan, who are in the same grade because Jessie has skipped a grade. Last summer Evan had a large amount of money stolen from the pocket of his shorts, and begins to ponder whether or not Scott Spencer took his money to buy this new X Box. The brother and sister team decide that they are going to set up a court to "judge" whether or not Scott is guilty of a crime. The student form a full courtroom setting with a judge, jury, and witnesses. This story could be a great tool in the classroom to teach about law and justice.

Complete with judge, jury, eye witnesses, and trial, the Jessie and Evan's fourth grade class learn about the judicial system while on the playground. Davies use of legal terms at the beginning of each chapter helps children understand complex situations with simplicity. In the sequel to the The Lemonade War, Jacqueline Davies tells the story of Evan and Jessie and how they take the law into their own hands. Who stole Evan's money? How did Scott afford his new game system? The siblings were sure they knew where Scott got the money and Jessie was determined to prove it

I thought this was a fantastic book! The average lives of two 4th grader siblings Jessie (who skipped 3rd grade), and Even are disrupted by the looming suspicion that Scott, a fellow 4th grader stole the hard earned $208 that Jessie and friend Megan earned selling lemonade. Scott was seen leaving the scene of the crime shortly before Even goes upstairs to find the $208 missing. [] The seeds of doubt grow when Jessie overhears Scott talking about his new Xbox 20/20 that his mom got from Japan. Jessie and Even are bitterly wondering how Scott could have possibly gotten the money for this and Jessie decides to take matters into her own hands. [] Soon, Jessie and Even have set up their own trial for Scott, and the question is: is the evidence that Scott's unruly nature and his hasty retreat from the swimming pool really enough to convict Scott of a serious crime?

This book was not one of my favorites. The whole story line was a little odd. You would have had to have read the first book to get this book at all. It was annoying to see how simple the whole book was after the first book being full of so much action. The only bit of action in the book was at the very end. She is such a good author and this book was realky her all time low. I dud not feel like this book was very good. It was definitely not the best that jaqueline davies could do. And i only know that from reading some of her previous books instead. They were a whoke lot better than this one.
