Format: Paperback
Synopsis: The book starts off with KC Corcoran and Marshall Li picking the name of a Present from their teacher Mr. Alubicki's baseball cap. KC gets President Thornton and Marshall gets Herbert Hoover. They have to write a report on the name of the President they get. KC goes home and does more research on President Thornton, like how he is left handed and got a lot of merit badges as a boy scout, as well as the newspaper article on how he says he is not into human cloning. When she sees a news report on the President on TV, she thinks it's strange that the President is signing papers with his right hand. She realizes that someone must have cloned the President, and calls Marshall to come over.

KC and Marshall decide to go to the White House to solve the mystery. At the White House, KC and Marshall join the tour group and manage to create a commotion by opening Marshall's jar of spiders. After hiding in the Lincoln bedroom till night, they start searching for the real President. When they meet the President and his clone, they cannot tell apart the real one from the fake, and soon find themselves kidnapped by the scientists who cloned the President. Will they be able to escape, and succeed in their efforts to rescue the real President?

Review: I really enjoyed reading some of the A to Z mysteries by Ron Roy, so I decided to pick up book 1 from Capital Mysteries and see how it would be. I thought this book was exciting at times, but overall I felt that it was a really strange story to read, where some parts were unexplained, which made it confusing to read at times. For instance, why was the cloned President locked in the room and drugged? And what did they do to the clone in the end?

the book had a lot of mischief and I also thought it was a little wacky at times when they broke into the White house and kept lying to those men but overall I think the book was 50-50.

My first-grader read it with little challenge and maximum enjoyment--she's ready for the whole series, too. My third-grader wanted to read it, too, but I had to redirect her to something more challenging. Cute series, and we're from Washington, DC, so we recognize a lot of the references.
