Theme (Social Issue):
Their one, normal world gets divided into three completely different worlds and there becomes a goal of finding back their family and loved ones.
Hope is graduating from Shantland High School as class of 2020. She has a lot to look forward in life, for she just received her acceptance letter from the college of her dreams to become an accountant. She is living in a world of wonders that every teenage girl would love to live. After she starts college in the fall, she meets a guy named Peter and he soon becomes the love of her life. Unless they are in classes they are inseparable.
Hope is living the life until one day the world turns pitch black for a short period of time and when it comes back to light she is in a whole new world. She goes back to the dorm for the rest of the day. Hope calls her parents and her sister Nevaeh but no one answers. She doesn't really think anything of in until her roommate Jamie comes home and says there is news on the streets that the world has divided into three separate worlds and some people are not in the same world as they started from. Just then she runs to find Peter. He is no where to be found. They are all in different worlds.
Hope sets out to find her family and Peter.
She finds out shortly that there isn't access to the other worlds unless you have codes to get across electronic borders, but the codes are only in special places that only certain people have access to. As she worries for day on end how to get to her loved ones, she sees an emergency job opening for an accountant in one of the smaller government agency buildings. Hope figures this is the only chance she has left to find them in the other worlds. She applies, gets the job, and finds out she has access to the accounting systems and access codes to all the worlds. One night she sneaks out with the codes and unlocks the worlds borders.
Hope finds her family in the first world and Peter in the other. She becomes really close with both her family and Peter in fear of losing them again. Peter asks Hope to marry him and they live happily ever after.
