It’s summertime, and school is out! To help beat the heat and make a little spending money, Brandon, Gabe, and JB decide to open a lemonade stand. The boys refuse to let Mya join them in their business, a decision which they may end up regretting. Sure enough, Mya rounds up a couple of her friends and they open their own stand right next to the boys’ stand! The boys realize they have real competition when many of their customers start going to the girls’ stand instead.
