Franny K. Stein didn’t think the time would ever come when someone would realize what the K in her name stood for. And she REALLY didn’t think that same someone would say her middle name in front of the whole school! But that’s what happened at the Science Fair award ceremony, and all the kids and teachers burst out laughing. So Franny does what any respectable mad scientist would do—she goes back in time to change her name.
However, things don’t turn out quite as she calculated, and Franny ends up having to face her teenage self in a warped, fourth-dimensional, kid-versus-teen, good-versus-evil, Franny-versus-Franny battle of the minds!

Chapter 3: Franny Takes the Cake
The announcement of the yearly Science Fair at school always filled Franny with mixed emotions. On the one hand, Franny loved creating new inventions and sharing them with others.
On the other hand, Franny already had a long list of projects in her lab that she was anxious to complete.
And on the other hand, it was always an extra challenge to create a project that the kids at school would appreciate. Wait a second, that was three hands.
Well, this is Franny we're talking about.
Franny explained it to her mom. "I want to do a good Science Fair project, but I really don't like to take time away from the other lab projects."
Her mom smiled. "You can't have it both ways, Franny. You know what they say: You can't have your cake and eat it too."
A wide grin came across Fanny's face. "You can't have your cake and eat it too? We'll see about that."
Franny walked quickly to her lab, with the blueprint of her next creation beginning to form inside her head as she went.
