Wow, this is a great book for youth to read about business. There are so many great lessons to be learned for this book. The Lemonade War is started because a brother and sister who have been very close, have some common misunderstandings about the other persons motives.

There are pertinent lessons about budgeting, profit margins, marketing & advertising, value added service, location and franchising. Really all of these issues are discussed with a kids perspective.

There is also a great bases for a discussion about business ethics. The motivations of the youth change as the book progresses and you see a progression through their motives, common to what you see in some business people. Things deteriorate until they get to the point that the ends justifies the means, and winning becomes so important that they will do anything for the win.

If you have kids and you want to have a great discussion about business - I highly recommend this book.
