Archer's Quest by Linda Sue Park
It is 1999. Kevin is in his room after school, trying to relieve the boredom of his history homework by bouncing a ball, when an arrow shoots out of nowhere, taking off his cap and barely missing his head. The arrow shooter turns out to be a Korean king who has come from 2,000 years in the past. The adventure begins as Kevin tries to help Archie, the king, back to his own time period. I really enjoyed reading this book. It has great characters, and kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end. Review by Joyce Levine.
