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.

School Library Journal

“Funny and adventurous with a theatrical flair, this story will keep readers turning pages. A fun, fast-paced romp.” —School Library Journal

Kirkus Reviews

“The heart of the story, however, is what makes this book special, and it resides with Fisher, who struggles mightily with his own sense of self-worth when faced with a mirror image of himself that seems to have it all.
A successful balance of fizz and substance.” —Kirkus Reviews
