Overview

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 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 gets clone-napped by the evil scientist Dr. X. As his simple plan collapses, Fisher must set out on an epic adventure to rescue his genetic counterpart.

3 Stars/Fiction;YouthFisher Bas is a student at Wampanog Middle School. While being bullied by a group of boys that Fisher refers to as "The Vikings", he decides that cloning himself would be better than having to endure any more school. After a successful clone, he sends Two in his place but as can be expected, things rarely turn out as planned. When things spiral out of control, Fisher must think fast to keep from spoiling his secret.This was a fun book that is sure to keep it's audience engaged and entertained. The story is a bit slow to get started, but once it takes off--- it is one wild adventure.

4 STARSI liked it but wonder about what age would read it. Their are a lot of big words. I am not sure if the kids would know the words or would look them up. I know I was bad at looking up words when I was in schoolFisher is a 12 year old who is really smart. His parents are too in fact they are all scienists and inventers. Even have won a noble prize. Fisher is picked on and bullied by the vikings 3 bigger kids. He is shy and wants out of school maybe start collage.His mom invented a flying pig because his dad said when pigs fly so of course they invented FP. One of his parents invented talking appliances, big vegatables that could only come into the garage they were so big. His mom was working on a new chemical that made things grow fast.Fisher got the idea to take a little and break it down so he could make more and clone himself. So the clone would go to school and deal with the bullies and other problems their. Fisher through trial and error made a clone of himself in a three day weekend.The clone Fisher calls him Fisher two or just Two for short. Well Two saw a commercial and thought the mom on it disappeared was their mom. Two also read wikipedia got a lot of knowledge from their. Two became popular fast made lots of friends, fought the vikings back,played jokes got called to princable office.Doctor X was evil scientist that was trying to find out the formula His mom invented. Two different times his spies tried to break into house while Fisher was hiding and scared them off. It used science, and smarts to invent stuff, action to take care of bad guys and stand up too bullies.I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review by Netgalley.01/24/2012 PUB Egmont USA

available Jan 24th, 2012publisher EgmontUSAMarketing Info: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. The book Popular Clone by M.E. Castle revolves around a young boy named Fischer Bas. We all either knew or were a Fischer Bas in school. The geeky, nerdy kid who blew the curve in science class. This kid picked on by the bullies and ignored by just about everyone else. The kid who's at the bottom of the popularity grid. Well, this kid is different. He feels so despondent he decides to use his mother's genetic invention to clone himself. To create a new Fischer to take his place at school. A new Fischer who can bear the brunt of the bullies attacks. Well, things don't work out as planned. A mad scientist is trying to steal Mrs. Bas's invention. The cloned Fischer, called Two, is captured and boy do things get fun.This book is a voyage of discovery for Fischer. By creating another Fischer, he discovers not only who he really is, but who he wants to be. Kids will enjoy Fischer's adventures with his clone and the mad scientist. They will learn a valuable moral lesson, without realizing it. The author of this book. M.E. Castle is a gifted writer with a talent for turning the down and out geek into a hero. I read this book to my 10 year old son. He is neither a bully nor a genius. He was yelling out loud- "Get the bullies" and "Go Fischer!" during many parts of this book. I think kids, both boys and girls, will love this book. Some will relate to Fischer, others will know someone like Fischer. Either way, a great story. The end is left open enough for further adventures of Fischer and Two.A great book for parents to give their children. It deals not only with bullies but with a young boy learning self confidence and acceptance. 5/5 stars for this book!! M.E.Castle has a winner on his hands!

This is a terrific book for middle-graders, especially the boys. While it wasn’t something I’d ever read again, it’s something that speaks to each middle grader. The feelings of inadequacy, the bullies, the cliques, the evil scientist trying to steal your parents inventions – well, I didn’t say we can’t dream!
