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.

Fisher Bas ia a Geek Extraordinaire. His parents are both well-regarded scientists, and his mother is working on a supersecret growth hormone project. Fisher doesn't have much success at school and is mercilessly bullied by boys he refers to as "the Vikings". This only person who makes his life bearable is his science teacher, Mr. Granger, who saves him and feeds him lunch. Fisher's pet pig is his solace at home, since his parents are always working. Things improve when Fisher manages, after a series of experiments, to clone himself. He sends Two to school, but Two is not the rule follower that Fisher is, and starts to have a small modicum of popularity. Two is also really smart and more daring than Fisher. When Fisher's mother's project is endangered by the evil Dr. X, Fisher must find a way to save her withouth revealing that he made a clone. A rolicking romp, which includes a ninja suit for the pig, ensues, and a sequel may well be in the offing.
Good Points
This humorous tale also has a lot of action, and some nerd empowerment.
