I was really impressed by the level of the writing in this book. Author Jacqueline Davies is a master of showing rather than telling, which makes the lessons her book offers very easy and even enjoyable to swallow. Jessie and Evan clearly have a very close relationship, a concept that can sometimes across as cheesy to kids who fight with their siblings, but Davies handles it in a very straightforward and emotionally honest way, which makes it very plausible and touching. The differences between the two kids are also very carefully and specifically described, and these differences in temperament, personality, and socialization add fuel to the fire of their fight once it begins. Yes, this book does teach the reader about business and math, but it’s also about family relationships, compromise, teamwork, and learning to forgive.
