High Score by Destiny Howell

book cover for High Score

“Well, if you’re as smart as you seem and as good as Conor made you sound, then maybe you can save your friend.”

DJ has been laying low in his new school – no cons, no complicated plans, no interfering with the status quo. Then his best friend Conor transfers in and quickly gets himself into trouble with the “number one” kid at the school, Lucky.

Lucky has fashioned himself up as a mafia-like boss with arcade tickets being the currency for his dealings. Lucky doesn’t mess around, and kids who get on his bad side get “rocket boosted” and then it is “pretty much game over.”

Now DJ has two weeks to get 100,000 arcade tickets for Conor is in deep deep troube. DJ needs a plan- good thing he likes making plans. Next, he needs a crew.

With heists and escapades similar to those in the movie Ocean’s Eleven or the tv show Leverage, this chapter book for upper elementary school readers is definitely a fun read.
