  1. This book alluded to some things that happened in the first book The Lemonade War (which I have not read). But it was mostly easy to follow in spite of me missing the first book. Each chapter began with an easy-to-understand definition of a judicial term, and the following chapter showed it playing out in the kids' real life. I really liked how this book's plot was very realistic and engaging and the characters were very believable. The book is a very fast read. The writing is jerky at times. This will not win the Newbery. But overall a good read! I would recommend this book to kids who like Andrew Clement's book Frindle and other books of that type.
