The second book in the Coin Slot Chronicles series, Arcade and the Golden Travel Guide, by former NFL running back and Dancing with the Stars Champion Rashad Jennings is a humorous and imaginative series that will teach readers to never underestimate the power of friendship, imagination, and the potential of an underdog.
In Arcade and the Golden Travel Guide, Arcade, Zoe, and their new friend, Doug, travel from New York to Virginia to stay with cousins and best friends, Derek and Celeste. It's a chance for Arcade to feel "normal" again after all the thrilling adventures in Arcade and the Triple T Token, book one in The Coin Slot Chronicles series.
But nothing is normal as long as the Triple T Token is hanging around his neck. Plus, Derek claims he's stumbled upon some troubling information, and now a suspicious person is following him. Arcade wonders if the trouble is related to the token-after all, someone has already tried to take it from him once. Where did this Triple T Token come from? And are all the adventures it provides worth all the trouble it brings?
A trip through the token's fantastical doors reveals a clue-a hidden box of old notes. As Arcade, Zoe, and their friends start to put the pieces together, the value of the token becomes clear, and the stakes are higher than ever. Can Arcade keep the token for himself? Or will sinister forces steal it from his grasp? 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 Golden Travel Guide another surefire hit in the series, even for reluctant readers.
