Bremy St James, daughter of billionaire Atticus St James, has been cut off from the family fortune and is struggling to survive in a world that no longer holds its breath every time she buys a new outfit. To make matters worse, her twin sister is keeping secrets, loan sharks are circling, and the man of her dreams — a newspaper reporter — is on assignment to bring down everyone with the last name St James.
Things are certainly looking bleak for the down-and-out socialite until a good deed 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 close enough to her father to stop him.
Now all she needs to do is figure out this superhero thing in less than a month, keep her identity secret from the man who could very well be The One, and save the city from total annihilation.
Well, no one ever said being a superhero would be easy...

Superhero-isim is a lost art!  Reformed villains are so popular now they have become the new norm.  Sidekick brings back the “good guy”, um gal.  Meet Bremy St Claire.  She’s brave. She’s cute. She takes orders well from the lead hero, Knight Rider.  She’s beyond reproach. Um okay, so maybe she needs a small push from time to time to act.  So what if she wears the wrong shoes, has bad hair days, and seriously has no “hero gal style”.  Oh and like you listen to EVERYTHING people tell you.  Sure she has a past, she’s not particularly proud off and rather not discuss.  But hey, that’s what’s made her the crime fighter she is today, “Bre…., um Brenda.” She has an alias.  That should count for something. Right?

Sidekick is the type of story that really jumps right intro the action.  Bremy StClair is instantly loveable and ridiculously hilarious.  Sidekick delivers without the magic, but loads of glam.

If you’re looking for a quick lighthearted contemporary comedy about a normal girl looking to save the world, starting with her rich girl gilt, then this book is for you.  Caution: You will laugh while reading, so refrain from doing so in public places.
