MONDAY: Popular Clone by M. E. Castle

Fisher Bas is sick of bullies. If he could only convince his parents he's too sick to go to school. Unfortunately, Fisher's parents are way too smart for that - like genius-scientist smart. If only there was a way to send someone to school in his place.... Someone like - a clone! Thanks to Mrs. Bas' super-secret hormone project, Fisher creates an almost perfect clone. But the clone, called Two, doesn't do anything right. He stands up to the bullies, pulls pranks on Fisher's favorite teacher, and actually becomes popular! Fisher knows something has to change, but an evil mastermind kidnaps Two and Fisher has to save the day.

Fun story with a NERDS feel. Clever inventions made by Fisher and the rest of his family. Great pet and sidekick - a flying pig. The cover says this is the first book in the Clone Chronicles. Good start for a series with a teaser right at the end for what might come next for Fisher and Two.

4 out of 5 stars
