Review: Arcade and the Triple T Token by:Rashad Jennings

 Arcade and the Triple T Token
**Disclosure**This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

About the Book:
The Coin Slot Chronicles series, by former NFL running back and Dancing with the Stars champion Rashad Jennings, is a humorous and imaginative series that explores the power of friendship and imagination, the challenges in finding your place, and the reality of missing home.

Eleven-year-old Arcade Livingston has a problem. Several, actually. The Tolley twins, a.k.a. neighborhood bullies, are making Arcade’s move to a new city even harder than it needs to be. They expect him to do their research papers and interactive displays for the sixth-grade career expo’s theme: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Besides doing their work, Arcade doesn’t even know his own answer to that question.

Then at the library—Arcade’s favorite place to chill—a mysterious old woman gives him a golden arcade token that grants him a unique gift. A gift that allows him to time travel between different places including his own future. From sitting in the dugout with Babe Ruth, to hanging on to the back of a bucking bull, to performing life-saving surgery on a dog, Arcade has no shortage of adventure! Together with his older sister, Zoe, Arcade explores life’s biggest thrills and challenges, and the two also have a big mystery to solve. Who is the rightful owner of the incredible Triple T Token that leads to such astounding adventures?

Arcade’s circle of friends begins to widen as the Triple T Token hangs from his neck. Pulsing. Beckoning another adventure. The question for Arcade, Zoe, and their new friends is no longer, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” It’s, “Where will we go next?”

My Review:
 Poor Arcade, just when he thinks his life can settle down a bit along comes two people that are anything but kind and it definitely shows. Arcade is given a somewhat impromptu gift at the library, his favorite hiding place.  Zoe, Arcades sister, figures she better go and keep her brother company, when he discovers that this gift is no ordinary gift.

 Arcade and Zoe are soon able to travel between time periods and events like nobody's business. Follow along with these two and discover some much more than you ever imagined could happen to two new city kids.

 A great book for grades 3-7. A fiction read that is nonstop action and fun.
