    7. This book was very happy and sad. When I was reading this, I had mixed emotions. When the hurricane happened, I was like, "WOAH!!! WHAT HAPPENED? What did I just read? I have to read these chapters again!!!". When they found the bunny under the porch I was jet like, "awww!! That poor little guy!". And in many other situations, I was like that tooI read this series backward and I hope you guys don't do that too! Start with this book and follow.And lastly, this book.

    10. The magic trap starts with Jessie in her room. She grabbed her locked box in her hiding spot and she had unlocked it looking at all the money she had in there. She had around 80 dollars and was saving up so that she could get 100 dollars and get her own bank account where her money would be safe. Then Evan came to the door and asked Jessie a question. Jessie quickly hid her box under her pillow and went to the door. Evan was holding an old magic book and he was asking Jessie what the book was ta [...]

    11. My 10 year-old-daughter loves this series, and I'm hooked now too. It's a nice read-aloud book For bedtime since it has short chapters. Most of the chapters end on a cliff hanger and make it hard to put down.

    16. The Magic TrapBy: Jacqueline DaviesReview By: Joon Sung OhThis book is about Evan and Jessie's mom having to leave for a business trip during the winter, but this causes a conflict-their babysitter, Peggy, had a car accident and could not babysit them because of her injury. So they were thinking of who could take care of them while their mom was gone, when their dad comes to visit (he was visiting because they were divorced). Then they decided that he could be with them. With their dad, they set [...]

    17. Jessie and Evan are a little apprehensive when their mother is preparing to go on a business trip and planning on leaving them in the care of her friend, while their grandmother goes to visit friends from her old neighborhood, but this almost falls through when the friend is hurt in an accident. Never fear: their father has just blown in to town between assignments and can stay with them. Jessie thinks this is great, since she misses her dad, but Evan knows how unreliable his father can be. Evan [...]

    23. This fifth book of the Lemonade War Series has Jessie and Evan teaming to perfect a magic show. Jessie and Evan are two believable children, brother and sister, who are in the same grade, although not the same age. Evan is the older of the two, much more athletic and well-liked, but he struggles in school. Jessie is a year younger, having skipped a grade in school because she is so smart, but she struggles with relationships, and has difficulty reading people's body language. Expecting to have t [...]

    24. I`m really disappointed that this series is over. I have enjoyed the books a lot. Jessie and Evan`s dad come back, because he`s been away a year. When the babysitter is in a minor car accident, it threatens their mom to not go to an important meeting. When their dad swoops in to say he`ll take care of them, Jessie and Evan`s mom is surprised. Then, after a while, their dad has to leave. It`s time for his business trip, and a storm`s coming. The morning he leaves, Jessie and Evan wake up to alarm [...]

    25. As far as I know, this is the conclusion of the Lemonade saga, and it's a satisfying one, even though the lessons are about magic (i.e. illusions), and I don't care about magic. Evan and Jessie's absent father finally shows up. He is a realistic-feeling character, a world-traveling, thrill-seeking reporter who's good at making grand gestures but not so much at being there for his kids. Where Evan mistrusts his father, Jessie thinks he's just amazing, but she's so wound up by his presence that it [...]

    26. In this fifth and final book in the Lemonade War Series, Jessie and Evan's father reappears in their life. Due to a series of unexpected events, he turns up at the perfect time to stay with them for a week while their mom travels for work. While Jessie is thrilled to have him home, Evan is less trusting. He is a war correspondent and rarely stays for more than a day or two. This time though, he seems to be making good on his word, helping Even learn magic tricks and supporting their attempts to [...]

    27. Book 5 in the Lemonade War series explores the feelings of Jessie & Evan as their father reappears and stays with them when their mother goes out of town for the first time. With the excitement of Evan's upcoming magic show and the incoming hurricane, everything gets complicated when Dad leaves a day early. How Evan supports his autistic sister (she is never identified as such during the story) through the changes of having Dad "take care of them" and then through the hurricane, was heart-wa [...]

    28. The characters are easy to like, but readers will feel sorry for them. There aren't very many books written where a parent is this irresponsible. I've read a few books where parents, usually dads, behave immaturely, but there's normally an underlying love and concern for the kids. The author weaves an enjoyable plot, but it's hard to find a positive lesson to the story. The kids had to get tough and survive.

    29. This was was right up there with The Bell Bandit for me. The issues it dealt with really hit home and were done really well. So that's why it gets 5 stars but really I would say 4.5 but doesn't let you do that. I wish this book had been around when I was a kid, it would have helped me deal with some of the stuff I was going through. I also might have become a magician! I hope there's a next one.

    30. Probably the weakest in this series about brother and sister Evan and Jessie Treski. The first two books in this series worked with a bit of a gimmick, but the concept did succeed - the stories revolved around a theme that was worked into the plot. The series has been erratic since then. I figured I'd better finish it up since this was the last volume, but it was outlandish and forced. Not a bad story, but not great.
