LaVaughn discovers what it is like to be selfless as well as smart as she helps Jolly to turn her life around, and in the end, find herself. Wolff helps to solidify the fact that your life does not have to perfect in order to life.

She uses the motif of lemons and lemonade throughout the entire story to show that 1 while somebody may have handed you a lemon without you realizing it at the beginning, you can still turn it into lemonade, and 2 even if you have to wait months and months for the lemon seeds to bloom, they will bloom. Jolly has been handed some of the hardest lemons imaginable, but she is still able to find the humor in her life.

LaVaughn is able to see this in Jolly and benefit from this. It is a pretty easy read, and she splits up her writing well that helps the reader to not get overwhelmed.

She spaces out her thoughts well and is very good at helping the reader get inside the head of the protagonist. Bought Make Lemonade for my granddaughter’s summer reading, and thought I’d sneak a peek myself.

Make Lemonade

Easy reading – and interesting plot! I know nothing about the author, but was searching for recommended reading online. I’m anxious to see what my granddaughter has to say about it after she reads it this summer. Loved this book so much! This book is a wonderful introduction to issues in real life. I read the book with my grand daughter and it made it easy to talk about issues I would otherwise wait to even breach with her. To really enjoyed the book and recommend it to all readers.


I strongly recommend it!!! Engage youth in real-life challenges, and welcome parents to the discussion.

Make Lemonade — not always easy to confront what youth experience. I look forward to Book 2 from this author. See all reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.
