throws her into the path of the city’s top crime-fighter, Dark Ryder.
Suddenly, Bremy has a new goal: apprentice to a superhero, and start her
own crime-fighting career.
Ryder has no need for a sidekick, but
it turns out the city needs Bremy’s help. Atticus St James is planning
the crime of the century, and Bremy may be the only one able to get

the city from total annihilation.

Sidekick is a fun, sassy novel that will have you laughing and smiling all the way through. I loved some of the comedic touches, which really helped to bring the characters to life and the story moved along at a good pace, always holding my interest.
Sidekick is an entertaining and worthwhile read and I'd be interested to see more from this author in the future.
