Twelve-year-old Fisher Bas is a geeky science genius and the son of Nobel-prize-winning parents. He should not have to hide in a science classroom to avoid the daily torment of overgrown goons he's dubbed the Vikings. But he does. When Fisher steals his mother's experimental growth hormones, he spends one long weekend successfully creating a replica of himself, Fisher-2. Now Fisher can spend all day working on his ground-breaking inventions, while his clone faces middle-school and the Vikings. But when his clone is kidnapped by an evil scientist, can Fischer save him in time or will his whole plan be exposed?
Popular Clone: The Clone Chronicles #1
"Castle’s debut, the first in a planned series, strikes just the right balance of humor and action and is sure to keep young readers turning the pages. Fisher’s struggles to fit in, to relate to girls and to uncover and preserve his true self feel genuine, making him a misfit and unlikely hero worth rooting for."—Kirkus Reviews Meet Fisher Bas: 12 years-old, growth-stunted, a geeky science genius, and son of the Nobel Prize-winning creators of the Bas-Hermaphrodite-Sea-Slug-Hypothesis. No surprise: Fisher isn't exactly the most popular kid in his middle-school, tormented daily by the beefy, overgrown goons he calls The Vikings. But he senses relief when he comes upon the idea of cloning himself--creating a second Fisher to go to school each day while he stays at home playing video games and eating cheetos with ketchup. It's an ingenious plan that works brilliantly, until Fisher's clone turns out to be more popular than him--and soon after gets clone-napped by the evil scientist Dr. Xander. Also available in simultaneous e-book edition (ISBN 978-1-60684-301-7).
