Synopsis: Seventeen-year-old Gwen is preparing to audition for New York Citys top music schools when her grandfather mysteriously disappears, leaving Gwen only a phone message telling her not to worry. But theres nothing more stressful than practicing for her auditions, not knowing where her grandfather is, and being forced to lie about his whereabouts when her insistent great-uncle demands an audience with him. Then Gwen meets Robert, also in town for music auditions, and the two pair up to brave the city without supervision. As auditions approach and her great-uncle becomes more aggressive, Gwen and Robert make a startling discovery. Suddenly Gwens hopes are turned upside down, and she and Robert are united in ways neither of them could have foretold. . . .
Things Hoped For is the sequel to Things Not Seen. Honestly I felt that this book had to much involving music and the death of her grandfather. These stories are supposed to be about invisibility. This has maybe 20 pages in it that have the invisible man and another 20 that discuss it. Not a amazing sequel if you ask me. I mean the ending was good. But the beginning was really slow. I really enjoyed the first book. This one was eh. Didnt really enjoy it. It could have been a lot better. Im a violinist but I found it annoying she was so serious about her music. This book needs a good tweaking. The idea was great but the rest of it was eh.
