Excellent sci-fi! Joey Harker is one of those kids who couldn't find his own backside with a map and a flashlight normally -- he gets lost in his own neighborhood. One day, though, he gets really lost -- he walks into another parallel world. One in which everything he knows is just slightly different ... and he doesn't exist. Joey discovers that he is a Walker, who can travel between worlds, and there are billions of them. There are two powerful groups who want his powers for their own purposes, and they are out to kidnap him at all costs. There is another group, Interworld Prime, created to maintain order between the magical (HEX) and the scientific (BINARY) groups. Interworld gets to Joey first. That group is made up of hundreds of different versions of himself (different ages and even alien species), all Walkers of different levels of power. HEX and BINARY are both trying to take over the universe and all its multitudes of worlds, and it's up to Interworld's operatives to stop them. Inventive fast-paced action!
