Capitalizing on the astronomical popularity of gaming and video games—as seen by the success of YouTube gamers like PewDiePie and DanTDM—this humorous middle-grade fiction book for readers 8 and up has the added backing of Rashad’s enormous social media and sports platform. Arcade and the Triple T Token includes black and white art and is perfect for reluctant readers.
Arcade is a 12-year-old boy who has a unique gift that allows him to travel into another dimension with his special token from a mysterious woman. However, he doesn't have an answer when his teachers ask his class the same simple question every year: What do you want to be when you grow up?
Arcade begins to pick up books on everything from entrepreneurship to football to piano to card tricks. As Arcade dives into books, he discovers that the possibilities for his future are endless. And the more Arcade learns about different professions and hobbies, the more Arcade notices that people from his school have characteristics that make them the perfect fit for each of them. Together with his sister, Zoe, the pair get into scrapes, scuffles, and the occasional extreme adventure as they lend their unique support to anyone who needs them.
Author and retired NFL running back Rashad Jennings's massive network of fans, and his huge crossover appeal thanks to his championship-winning season on Dancing With the Stars, will help make Arcade and The Triple T Token a surefire hit, even for reluctant readers.
