The Candy Smash (The Lemonade War Series #4) (Paperback)
Winter 2012 Kids Next List
“This is a terrific addition to Davies' beloved Lemonade War series. Davies understands and respects kids -- both as her characters and as her readers. Jessie and Evan are back, as are Megan and Scott, and with Valentine's Day approaching Mrs. Overton's 4th-grade class is bursting with cards, crushes, and mystery. Who is leaving forbidden boxes of candy hearts in everyone's desk? Just like Evan, readers will be inspired by Mrs. Overton's infectious love of poetry. This is a perfect book for middle readers!”

The fourth installment of the popular Lemonade War series! Siblings Jessie and Evan Treski have waged a lemonade war, sought justice in a class trial, and even unmasked a bell thief. Now they are at opposite ends over the right to keep secrets...
Evan believes some things (such as his poetry) are private. Jessie believes scandal makes good news.
When anonymously sent candy hearts appear in Class 4-0, self-appointed ace reporter Jessie determines to get the scoop on class crushes.
Like a modern-day Beverly Cleary, Jacqueline Davies writes with heart, humor, and honesty about family and school life for middle schoolers.

- The Lemonade War
- The Lemonade Crime
- The Bell Bandit
