The Walkers are a team of individuals who can travel through parallel worlds, each of which is different from the others. Their mission is to protect the InterWorld, a dimension that connects all other dimensions, from the forces of darkness known as the Hex and the Binary. The Hex and the Binary are two powerful groups that are trying to gain control of the InterWorld to dominate all other dimensions.
Joey soon learns that he is not alone in his ability to travel between dimensions, and he meets a group of other Walkers who help him understand his powers and teach him how to use them.

Details: Product Description When Newbery Medal winner Neil Gaiman and Emmy Award winner Michael Reaves teamed up, they created the bestselling YA novel InterWorld. InterWorld tells the story of Joey Harker, a very average kid who discovers that his world is only one of a trillion alternate earths. Some of these earths are ruled by magic. Some are ruled by science. All are at war. Joey teams up with alternate versions of himself from an array of these worlds. Together, the army of Joeys must battle evil magicians Lord Dogknife and Lady Indigo to keep the balance of power between all the earths stable. Teens—and tweens and adults—who obsessively read the His Dark Materials and Harry Potter series will be riveted by InterWorld and its sequel, The Silver Dream. Review “A mind-stretching ride for which all tweens and teens (and many adults) will be grateful.” -- Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (starred review) From the Back Cover An astounding tale of adventure, danger, magic, science, friendship, spaceships, and, oh yeah, the battle to save all the people in all the worlds in all possible dimensions. Joey Harker isn't a hero. In fact, he's the kind of guy who gets lost in his own house. But one day, Joey gets really lost. He walks straight out of his world and into another dimension. Joey's walk between worlds makes him prey to armies of magic and science, both determined to harness Joey's power to travel between the dimensions. The only thing standing in their way is Joey—or, more precisely, an army of Joeys, all from different dimensions and all determined to save the worlds. Now Joey must make a choice: return to the life he knows or join the battle to the end.
