Overview

As the world's first completely illegal clone of America's 16th President, Abe Finkelstein grew up with just one wish: to live his life just like anybody else. But when you're a living ringer for one of the country's best-loved historical figures, privacy is hard to come by-especially when your face is on money. Across town, Norma Greenberg, one of the world's many Marilyn Monroe clones, is struggling with identity issues of a different sort. It's not easy going through life as a copy of the beautiful Norma Jeane Baker! When Abe is taken away by government agents eager to discover the secrets of his illustrious ancestor, Norma could be Abe's last hope of escape-or, thanks to her kleptomania, his worst chance of recapture. With only their wits, a cigarette lighter, a bottle of perfume, and the disembodied arm of Richard Nixon, can Abe and Norma make it back to safety and anonymity?
