To create the perfect middle-grade formula, Cloneward Bound takes a slice of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and mixes it with Michael Buckley's NERD series to create a scientifically engineered middle-grade series full of humor, adventure, and a flying pig: The Clone Chronicles.
Fisher Bas and Two were able to thwart the evil Dr. X, but after somehow surviving the explosion at TechX Enterprises, Two is in Hollywood looking for his "mother." Fisher must bring him back to Palo Alto before his cloning secret is discovered. When a class field trip to see the Dr. Devilish science show arises, it becomes the perfect opportunity for Fisher to find his clone. But all kinds of complications will get in the way - including Amanda Cantrell, who knows more than Fisher would like about Two's identity.
As Fisher, FP, and Amanda team up to find Two, they find trouble, hijinx, and the return of an evil mastermind - all set in the glitz of Hollywood.
The Clone Chronicles series has been created by Paper Lantern Lit--the "literary incubator" co-founded by Lauren Oliver. You can visit them online at www.paperlanternlit.com.
