Jessie gets ready to celebrate the New Year at his grandmother's house, except things are different this year after the fire and his grandmother having to go to the hospital, but when the New Year's bell is stolen from atop Lovell Hill, Jessie wonders how they will manage to ring in the new year without it.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The Treski family's traditional trip to Grandma's house for Christmas and New Year's takes a wrenching turn in the third volume of the Lemonade War series. A kitchen fire has destroyed part of Grandma's home, she has just returned from the hospital, and sometimes she doesn't recognize her own grandchildren. The disappearance of the New Year's Bell, always rung at midnight with the whole community gathered on Grandma's wooded hill, seems minor in comparison, but its symbolic importance to the family is evident. In the days that follow, 10-year-old Evan lends a hand repairing the house and, pushing past his pain, finds other practical ways to help his grandmother. Meanwhile, nine-year-old Jessie tries to solve the bell mystery, befriends an unusual boy, and tangles with bullies. Taking readers and characters outside their comfort zones of neighborhood, school, and normalcy, Davies portrays Evan and Jessie with subtlety and conviction as their relationship shifts and the difference in their ages becomes apparent in a new way. A fresh addition to a well-written series.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2010 Booklist"
