Popular Clone

Ok, I have to be honest with you.  I was actually more interested in reading the third book in this series Game of Clones, but felt guilty going out of order so I started with the first.  But who wouldn't love that title?  This is a fun series that should appeal to kids who like funny, realistic fiction

Title:       Popular Clone

Author:  M.E. Castle

Target:   Grades 3-7

Series:   Yes

What this book is about: 
Fisher Bas has a tough life.  He is a science genius, which is not that high on the social ladder at school.  In an effort to get away from bullies who are harassing him, he “borrows” some of the Advanced Growth Hormones is mother is working on to create a clone of himself.  Now Fisher can stay home and work on his own experiments while his clone suffers the torment at school.  However, when Fisher’s clone turns out to be more popular - much more popular - he draws attention to himself and the attention of an evil scientist who would love to get his hands on the Advanced Growth Hormones.  Will the evil Dr. X ruin all Fisher’s plans - well you take a guess?

Why I love this book: 
This book is just plain fun.  I had to read it when I saw that Castle’s other two books were Cloneward Bound and Game of Clones.  There is plenty of humor in this story, coupled with lots of action which keeps the story moving nicely.

Fisher is a likable character and you are rooting for him the whole time. I like that Fisher finds his courage but doesn’t abandon who he is, even if that means he won’t be the most popular kid in school.

Who this book is for: 
Kids who like Genius Files and Science Fair will find this book a home run.  Because of the humor and action, kids who are reluctant readers will find a lot to like in this story.

Final thoughts: 
A clone to do my housework … a mom can dream.
