When a meteorite blasts thirteen-year-old Jasper Snert's house into a million smithereens, his parents tell him it's time to get a job. They didn't have meteorite insurance. They need money for a new house. But new houses aren't cheap, and the only job Jasper can find is cleaning up around the old laundromat out on Highway 51. The pay is low, but Jasper is determined to help anyway he can.

The laundromat is a strange, lonely place. When the weird old washing machine repairman explains that he's actually the immortal sorcerer Ozmodis, who helped the Pharaohs build the Pyramids, it gets even stranger—especially when it turns out to be true.

Ozmo has another secret. A secret he wants to keep from Jasper Snert. The SuperWash 2000, the biggest machine in the place, is really a portal to other worlds. Worlds where even the dirt roads are paved with gold. Enough gold to buy Jasper and his parents a whole city of new houses. Unfortunately, these other worlds are full of something else, too.

Monsters.

Monsters who want to tap Jasper's brain—literally.

Monsters who believe Jasper knows something. Something he doesn't even know that he knows: The key to unlock the greatest mystery in the Multiverse. A mystery that will give the monsters the power to take over our world, and every other world the Multiverse holds. Only Jasper can stop them. The only problem is—Jasper doesn't even know what “the Multiverse” is.

He's about to find out. . . .
