Arcade and the Triple T Token By New York Times bestselling author Rashad Jennings

I was given a free copy of this book for the purpose of review.


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?”
I got this book for my 11 year old son!  Most of this review will be written by him!  This is going to be his first post on my blog
So please welcome Brandon Jr 
This book is about this boy named arcade.  And his sister Zoe.  The person who made the bool was Rashad Jennings(he use to play for the NFL!).   At the library he gets a token that allows him to travel to different times and places.  They get to do a lot of fun stuff!  And there was bullies, there is bullies at my school too.


Me again!  So as a mom I can tell you he was super excited about this book.  The fact an NFL player wrote it and it is my sons dream to be an NFL player/author.  I think he may have a new idol 
This book is just plain fun, every night my little guy would tell me about the new adventure the characters were having.  The book also touched on real life issues such as bullying and big questions we all ask ourselves.  It was funny and had lots of action, the perfect blend of real life and fantasy.  My son cannot wait for the next book in the series
