Book reviews are subjective. I tend to rate books not according to how “perfect” they are, seem to be, or are said to be in general but rather to how perfect they are to me.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Triple T Token is taking Arcade, his sister, his cousins, and his friends on international adventures through time for reasons that are gradually revealed. But Arcade’s possession of the token may spell increasing danger in Arcade and the Golden Travel Guide by author Rashad Jennings.
Okay! Now that I’m two books into The Coin Slot Chronicles, I’m getting a better feel for this middle grade ChristFic fantasy series: an ongoing adventure and an unfolding mystery with lessons along the way.
As with the first book, different parts of this one were a bit slow for me, the punctuation coming out of the dialogue is incorrect in a few places, and the italics and ALL CAPS go overboard sometimes. But I love how these young characters use their brains and talents for good, learning to listen to their hearts. The read is funny and ultimately energizing, with messages about generosity, compassion, forgiveness, and more.
And yeah, after a resolution, there’s another cliffhanger ending, but I wasn’t unprepared for it this time. I’m looking forward to Book Three!
Here’s my review of Book One in The Coin Slot Chronicles, Arcade and the Triple T Token.
