Joey Harker is an average kid--more or less. He has no sense of direction and feels out of place, until the day he takes a walk... and ends up in another world.
This misadventure kicks off Interworld, by Neil Gaiman and Michael Reaves. Based on a TV pitch they concocted in the '90s, the story follows Joey on a bizarre journey of self-discovery, leading to terrible danger and the chance to save the world--or perhaps a trillion worlds all at once.From official release/information:
Book Description: Joey Harker isn't a hero. In fact, he's the kind of guy who gets lost in his own house. But then one day, Joey gets really lost. He walks straight out of his world and into another dimension. Joey's walk between the worlds makes him prey to two terrible forces—armies of magic and science who will do anything to harness his power to travel between dimensions.
When he sees the evil those forces are capable of, Joey makes the only possible choice: to join an army of his own, an army of versions of himself from different dimensions who all share his amazing power and who are all determined to fight to save the worlds.
Master storyteller Neil Gaiman and Emmy Award-winning science-fiction writer Michael Reaves team up to create a dazzling tale of magic, science, honor, and the destiny of one very special boy—and all the others like him.
