Publisher Comments:

For a full hour, he poured lemonade. The world is a thirsty place, he thought as he nearly emptied his fourth pitcher of the day. And I am the Lemonade King.

Fourth-grader Evan Treski is people-smart. Heand#8217;s good at talking with people, even grownups. His younger sister, Jessie, on the other hand, is math-smart, but not especially good with people. So when the siblingsand#8217; lemonade stand war begins, there really is no telling who will winand#8212;or even if their fight will ever end. Brimming with savvy marketing tips for making money at any business, definitions of business terms, charts, diagrams, and even math problems, this fresh, funny, emotionally charged novel subtly explores how arguments can escalate beyond anyoneand#8217;s intent.

Awards: 2009 Rhode Island Children's Book Award, 2007 New York Public Library 100 Titles for Reading and Sharing, North Carolina Childrenand#8217;s Book Award 2011, 2011 Nutmeg Award (Connecticut)

Ella sabe que no demuestra sentimientos. Entonces, cuando comienza la guerra de limonada, no se sabe quiand#233;n ganarand#225;, y mucho menos si la guerra terminarand#225;.

Por primera vez en espaand#241;ol presentamos esta combinaciand#243;n perfecta de humor, matemand#225;ticas y negocios, escrita por Jacqueline Davies y traducida por las premiadas Alma Flor Ada y F. Isabel Campoy. Es una novela conmovedora que presenta una relaciand#243;n and#250;nica entre hermanos y analiza de manera sutil de quand#233; manera las discusiones pueden intensificarse mand#225;s alland#225; de lo esperado.

In this enduring favorite, now in a Spanish language edition for the first time ever, a season with the toughest soccer team in the county gives twelve-year-old Paul the confidence to stand up to his wicked brother.

Synopsis:

Evan Treski is people-smart. He is good at talking with people, even grownups. His younger sister, Jessie, on the other hand, is math-smartand#8212;but not especially good at understanding people. She knows that feelings are her weakest subject. So when their lemonade war begins, there really is no telling who will winand#8212;and even more important, if their fight will ever end.

Here is a clever blend of humor and math fun. As it captures the one-of-a-kind bond between brother and sister, this poignant novel subtly explores how arguments can escalate beyond anyoneand#8217;s intent.

Synopsis:

Welcome to the Whittaker Magnet School, where standardized testing truly is the work of the devil.

Synopsis:

From the author of Tangerine, the story of one brave teen's search for the truth

Synopsis:

Roberta Ritter hopes to be a journalist one day, but for now she's stuck working at her family's arcade in a dilapidated shopping mall. From her vantage point behind the counter, she sees all the goings-on at the mall--and some things she sees are disturbing. Racism, dirty politics, and drugs are all part of the scene. Roberta doesn't like it, but she's just a fifteen-year-old--so what can she do?

and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;

Roberta is surprised to find out just how much power she does have. To hone her journalistic skills, she begins to investigate hate crimes at the mall. In the process, she uncovers some shocking information concerning her own mother's death. And as she learns to stand up for herself and the truth, Roberta becomes the kind of person who makes things happen--a crusader.

Synopsis:

George and Kate are promised the finest education when they transfer to the Whittaker Magnet School. It boasts the highest test scores in the nation. But at what price? Their school's curriculum is focused on beating standardized tests; classes are held in dreary, windowless rooms; and students are force-fed noxious protein shakes to improve their test performance. Worst of all, there seems to be a demon loose in the building--one whose murderous work has only just begun.

A bitterly funny satire about the state of modern education from the author of Tangerine and Crusader.

Includes a reader's guide and an author's note.
