Jessie and Evan Treski have waged a lemonade war, sought justice in a class trial, and even unmasked a bell thief. Now they are at opposite ends over the right to keep secrets. Evan believes some things (such as his poetry) are private. Jessie believes scandal makes good news. When anonymously sent candy hearts appear in Class 4-0, self-appointed ace reporter Jessie determines to get the scoop on class crushes.

    I loved this book so so so so much!!!!!!!!!!!! It is a great realistic fiction story. It is about a boy and a girl who are brother and sister. Valentines day is coming up soon and some mysteries have been happening close to Valentines day. I think this book is for boys and girls because in the book the two main characters are a boy and a girl. I think the message in this book is ''Always tell the truth''. I hope you like it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      This story is such a sweet story. There's Evan and Jessie, and a mysterious character who plays into the story. Jessie wants to create a newspaper, which turns out a little too "successful." Jessie breaks a few rules to get things a little her way for the newspaper which makes everyone in the school crazy. Things go out of hand because of finding about other people's crushes. I really enjoyed this story because it was sweet and simple.

        It was a funny book. Evan & Jessie are brother and sister.

          Jessie and Evan are brother and sister. Jessie wants to be a journalist and Evan finds out he like to write poetry. Evan is not very out spoken and Jessie is just the opposite.

            Great book. Fun characters and lots of action. I like this series and have read others in it. I can't wait to see how it ends.

              I love this new series. Jessie and Even are brother and sister. They both love to write. But One is more quiet then the other. Although you should read Lemonade Wars before this book.

                It is a really good book, but you sort of have to read the other books first. It is about two siblings and Valentines day. Evan's sister is a year younger than him, but is smart so she is in the same grade as him. read it!

                    I wonder why the named the book the candy smash and who would smash candy? I really don't like candy even though my username has to do with candy.

                      I want to read this book. I have read all of the other books in the lemonade war series and they were great! I would recommend the lemonade war series.
