Charles Darwin Gibson (Charlie) may have been a little distracted when he knocked over the beaker of super-secret experimental solution in science class. He was busy feeling sorry for himself. Mom had grounded him (for a week) for putting off his homework (forever) and he knew he wasn’t going to get to go to the pro basketball game that the rest of the team was going to on Friday. When he cut his hand on the broken beaker, he did what any self-respecting twelve-year-old guy would do. He wrapped his hand in a paper towel, threw the mess in the trashcan and high-tailed it out of the room before the teacher came back in. The accident, however, set off a chain of events that gives Charlie the amazing ability to make copies of himself at will, and suddenly homework and chores are not such a big deal. Everything is awesome until the wrong person learns what he can do and Charlie has to make some tough decisions while saving his friends, his sister (and maybe the world) from a nemesis that would stop at nothing to learn the secret to his ability. While Chucks engages the reader's imagination with a story of the extraordinary, Charlie must learn in the end that the skills he needs have been within him from the beginning.
Chucks is best suited for the 8-12 year old reader.
