What if you suddenly met someone who's you--only better? That's what happens in this hilarious new series for fans of Stuart Gibb's Moon Base Alpha and quirky sci-fi animated shows like Rick and Morty and Regular Show.

It all starts with a note folded into the shape of an origami octopus: "Hi, Me. Yes, you. You're me, and I'm you." If you believe this and the other origami notes that follow--which middle schooler Meade Macon absolutely, positively does NOT --the concept of parallel dimensions is true, and there is a convention full of alternate versions of Meade waiting for his RSVP. It's got to be a joke.
Except . . . the octopus is an origami fold Meade thought he invented. And the note writer has a lot of intel on him that nobody else should know. I mean, he's told his best friend Twig a lot about himself, but he's definitely kept mum about that time he sleepwalk-peed into his Lego container when he was six. Could Me Con be a real thing? And why does the origami stalker want him to go so badly anyway?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Enticed by a string of weirdly knowledgeable invitations, 13-year-old Meade Macon boards a 100-button elevator in a creepy abandoned hotel and finds himself in the midst of Me Con, a teeming mass of nearly, but not quite, identical variations on . . . him, each from an alternate universe. Fortunately, each has been assigned a nickname to stave off confusion. Unfortunately, the assignments and the Con itself are the work of Meticulous Me from Earth 1, aka the "United States" of the British Empire, a sneering evil genius who invented the first elevator and is about to launch a second, much bigger one, despite the probability that it will devastate Meade's "floor" (and ours), Earth 99. Can Meade, dubbed Average Me since he has no obvious distinguishing feature aside from a knack for folding complex origami animals, save the multiverse from, well, himself? Plainly having great fun with the whole conceit, Wilson pits his bewildered but game narrator against arrogant Meticulous and thuggish minions Mobster Me and Ren Faire Me, while providing him with a motley squad of allies lead by tough, transgender Resist Me of Earth 57. Average turns out to be more than just a cognate of mediocre, and the climactic triumph over Meticulous is both clever and cheerworthy on more than just an allegorical level. Stay tuned for further button pushing. Finished illustrations not seen."
