Twins Evan and Jessie approach Valentine's Day as differently as they approach everything else. Evan writes poetry (though he's afraid of admitting that to anyone) and Jessie puts her scientific mind to work solving a classroom Valentine mystery. The Lemonade War series' fourth book captures the nuances of elementary-school drama and sibling dynamics. School-newspaper excerpts, poetry terms, and famous poems are appended.
