Who stole the money? When Jessie and Evan had a lemonade stand Jessie earned $208. But Evan took it. Then, when Evan goes to his friends to swim in his pool, he notices that someone stole the $208. When Jessie finds out she makes a jury and pretends to have a mini court at their school. Will Jessie's plan work and will she get the $208 back?


In my opinion of the book I thought it was great! It really made you think about the clues and who stole the money. Also it had a lot of twists to it. I thought the ending was really good as well. I thought the plot was really interesting. It didn’t stay the same the whole time, it was exciting and not boring.


I would recommend this book to people who like mysteries because this book is a mystery. Also if you liked the first book in the series. The book is good for kids who are in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. Also if you like exciting books.
