We ABSOLUTLEY love this book! Not only is it pretty much perfect for my nine year old son, but guys its written by Rashad Jennings former NFL running back and Liberty University alumni, now I realize that may not be as big of a deal for you as it is for my kids, but the Liberty University aspect is HUGE in our house…why? My husband is also a Liberty University alumni and all our children plan to attend!! Not an NFL fan or don’t know much about Liberty University, but still thinking the name Rashad Jennings still sounds familiar? Well, there is a reason why, he was on Dancing with the Stars and won!
From the Publisher:
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?”
Today I thought it would be fun to have my guy write the review so with out further ado here you go…From my 9yo son Simon: “I really like this book! Arcade is a cool name. Arcade loves the library and one day he meets a mysterious person and gets a cool token like the ones at the arcade but it isn’t for games its magic and takes him to different times and places. Arcade and Zoe do all kinds of really fun cool stuff, and the bullies get put in their place, I like that because I don’t like bullies who push people around. I think you would like this book and your son needs it, if you have a girl she will like it too. I love reading it with my dad. I want to go to Liberty like my dad and Rashad!”
Guys, its like this book was written specifically for him! It has been incredibly difficult to find a book series that is right for our little man but we have now! Fun Fact book 2 comes out right after Simon and his twin sisters birthday!!!
I highly recommend this book to anyone…boys, girls, parents, grandparents…seriously its great!
