Amy's boyfriend, Chris, gets a big shock when his long-lost dad shows up all of a sudden. But is Chris' dad up to something? It's up to Amy to find out before Chris ends up in big trouble!

Author: Marilyn Kaye

Amy Candler, the genetically engineered super clone, is trying to kick back at home and take it easy with her boyfriend, Chris. Suddenly Chris' long-lost dad shows up. Chris hasn't seen his old man in years so it's a big shock and he doesn't know how to feel about his, formerly rich, now down on his luck, father who abandoned him.


Unwilling Organ Donor

The next thing Amy knows, all kinds of rich and famous people are being reunited with their long-lost kids. It's reunion time, but there's something creepy going on. When Grace Morrison, the evil doctor behind Amy's super genes, shows up as well, Amy knows something's up. Is Amy going to be able to save her boyfriend Chris without revealing her powers? Or is Chris doomed to end up an unwilling organ donor?


The Bottom Line

Like Father, Like Son has an incredibly evil plot at work. I mean really evil, worse than anything Amy has ever had to stop. Good thing it's only a book, if your parents tried this it'd be totally freaky. Marilyn Kaye gets full points for pulling off a major creep-out just as stuff like this starts to happen in real life.

    "CabeAlmighty" wrote:Yes I am a christian and yes the death penalty in the Bible stands strong. Cause when Judgment day comes, he will send those who didn't work in his will, to eternity in hell. He won't show mercy anymore because he already did before, enough to send his son to sacrifice his life for us. Yeah and that's all good and gravy. But what did Jesus say? Jesus said to forgive those who wrong you/ Jesus said that we should turn the other cheek. When it comes to The Death Penalty in The Bible, Jesus ended the capitol punishment in the Mosaic Laws.

    If you get offended by a "Yo Mama" joke, you deserved it. Only way you could run into it is by you choosing to look at them or somebody jokingly saying it. The original purpose of "Yo Mama" jokes is to get offended. They were used to instigate fights so that person could "swing first." You are intentionally trying to aggravate someone when you say it.  If someone is saying it jokingly to you, then you must know that person. They know what your mother is like in real life and they know how you are. They know you won't get offended by it. Now, if they don't know you personally like that, then they are inconsiderate. That person should know before hand what the status of your mother is before even conceiving the idea of saying it.  And I mean seriously, they are pretty childish. You should know not to entertain the situation and just leave. Personally for me, these jokes never struck me. Ever. I know what my mother looks like, how she is. The person that's saying it doesn't. So how can anything they say about her be true?
