The Clone Chronicles, Book 1
Borrow Borrow Borrow

"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: a 12-year-old, growth-stunted, geeky science genius who is the son of Nobel Prize -winning parents. Despite his outsized IQ, Fisher is far from the most popular kid in his middle school--he's actually tormented daily by the beefy, overgrown goons he calls the Vikings.

Holed up in his home lab over a long weekend, Fisher uses his mother's revolutionary Advanced Growth Hormone to clone himself. Now Fisher Two can go to school each day while the real Fisher stays at home playing video games, eating Cheetos, and working on his latest inventions. It's an ingenious plan that works brilliantly . . . until Fisher's clone turns out to be more popular than him and then gets clone-napped by the evil scientist Dr. Xander. As his simple plan to literally avoid the toilet bowl of middle school collapses, Fisher's life gets even more complicated, and he must set out on an epic adventure to rescue his genetic counterpart.
