Arcade and the Golden Travel Guide is the second book in the humorous and imaginative Coin Slot Chronicles series by New York Times bestselling author, former NFL running back, and Dancing with the Stars champion Rashad Jennings.
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?
ABOUT THE COIN SLOT CHRONICLES SERIES
Arcade and his sister, Zoe, are on a hunt for answers to life's tough questions, starting with a mysterious "Triple T Token" that was given to Arcade by an old woman at the library. "Happy travels," was all she said before she vanished.
The token has a mind of its own: heating up, pulsating light, and causing a golden coin slot to appear. When Arcade inserts the token into the slot, doors of opportunity open. And when he steps through them, thrilling, amusing, and sometimes scary adventures await. Arcade believes that the token was meant for him to learn about life so he can help others along the way. Right now, he has a lot to learn.
