Gwen is a seventeen year old music student who will soon audition at some of New York's most elite music schools. Her future in music will be determined within the next few weeks. Then her grandfather suddenly disappears, leaving her with a note that merely says he has gone away, and that she is not to tell anyone.
Although she is concerned about her grandfather she is helped when she meets Robert, first introduced as Bobby in “Things Not Seen.” Robert helps Gwen to keep her grandfather's disappearance from becoming known, but all around them strange events seem to be mounting toward some mysterious climax. When everything comes to its finish Gwen will discover just how much her grandfather loved her.
“Things Hoped For” differs slightly in style from “Things Not Seen.” While “Things Not Seen” was more of a science fiction novel, “Things Hoped For” is more of a mystery. In addition “Things Hoped For” shows a different side of invisibility than “Things Not Seen.” Andrew Clements' writing style, however, is still spotless, his characters still wonderful, and his plot still attention grabbing.
