    Right before the start of their freshman year, Emma’s family unexpectedly moves to England. The book club is stunned, but thanks to videoconferencing, they can keep the club alive. They decide to tackle Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, a particularly fitting choice. In England, Emma deals with a new queen bee, Annabelle, who makes her life miserable. And back home, Annabelle’s cousins—who have swapped homes with the Hawthornes—whip the rest of the school into a frenzy. Cassidy clashes with moody Tristan, Concord’s own version of Mr. Darcy, and everyone is taken with his younger brother Simon. Desperate for life to get back to normal, the girls throw a bake sale to raise money and bring Emma home—and suddenly, they have a thriving business, Pies & Prejudice. But when the plan they cook up falls short, will the book club ever all be together again?

    Jacqueline Davies’ The Lemonade War was praised for using subjects such as math and economics to create a “suspenseful, subtly educational plot that goes down as easily as a cool glass of lemonade in August” (Children’s Literature). The third novel in the series starring fourth-grader Evan Treski and his smarty-pants younger sister, Jessie, follows the siblings as they try to solve the mystery of who stole the New Year’s Bell from atop Lovell Hill. Everything about this trip to Grandma’s house was different. First, because of the fire, Mrs. Treski, Evan, and Jessie had driven up to Grandma’s two days after Christmas instead of the day before, missing Christmas with Grandma entirely. Second, the fire had left a hole in the back kitchen wall big enough to drive a car through. And with Grandma in the hospital, everything felt off. Third, someone had climbed the long, slow slope of Lovell Hill to the top and had stolen the old iron bell hanging on its heavy wooden crossbeam. Who on earth would steal the New Year’s Bell? And how could Grandma, Mrs.Treski, Evan, Jessie, and their neighbors ring in the New Year without it? Like a modern-day Beverly Cleary, Ms. Davies writes with heart, humor, and honesty about the inevitability of profound change and reveals just how well she understands the complex emotions of the children.
