Not Quite Human is the name of a series of young adult novels by Seth McEvoy about a widower scientist, Dr. Jonas Carson, whose lifetime work was to create an android. Dr. Carson names the android Chip. In order to conceal his project from those who would use Chip or Dr. Carson's skills for sinister purposes, Dr. Carson passes off Chip as a student at a junior high school and claims he is his son. His daughter, Becky, is the only other one who knows the secret, and Dr. Carson takes a job as a science teacher at the school to keep an eye on his "son". Chip has superior abilities such as great strength and a photographic memory, but also has a large density which gives him more weight than humans of his size. Chip also has a tendency to take every word in a literal sense. Throughout the novels Chip becomes more human as he gains a better understanding of the human race.
