Interworld by Nail Gaiman & Michael Reaves

What a wonderful surprise!

Synopsis of Interworld by Neil Gaiman and Michael Reaves: 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.

My two cents: I LOVED this book! I can't believe that I've waited this long to read this one, after all this is product of a great partnership (Gaiman and Pratchett!). I vaguely remembered The Time Traveler's Wife when I started it. But wait, it's not quite. While this has an element of time travel, it is edgy and hip, action-packed, and with enough science appeal. A great quick read that will definitely draw in teens. I hope this gets made into a movie at some point! Kudos to this unexpected adventure piece!
