Time Gangsters
Berin Stephens

296 pages
Published February 8, 2012

This is a pre-release review. Thanks to the publisher, Cedar Fort, and NetGalley for letting us read it early in exchange for an honest review.

When Billy discovers a hidden cache of ancient coins, it isn't long before a gang of thugs swipes them right from under Billy. Plotting to use the magical properties of the coins to seize power in the past, these power-hungry gangsters will do anything to reach their goal. Their future threatened, Billy and Danny must race through time to steal back the coins---before history is changed forever!

* * *

Imagine waking up to breaking window and a man standing over your bed with a Tommy gun pointed at you. Not something you'd expect? Billy never would have believed it if it hadn't happened to him. This late-night visitor sends Billy, his friend Wheezy, and his cousin Danny into a treasure hunt to top every adventure Billy had ever dreamed of.

Hidden treasure, time travel, old-time gangsters, adventure, self-discovery. This book has it all. I'd recommend it for anyone from age 8 to 200.

5/5 stars
