Hello Fellow Readers,
I read the first book in the Sidekick in the Series; Sidekick (I also posted a Review), and I really loved it so when I saw the second book I knew I had to read that as well!
Fresh off thwarting the crime of the century, Bremy St. James is back and more determined than ever to fight by the side of the city’s top superhero, Dark Ryder. There’s just one problem: Dark Ryder’s disappeared.
To make matters worse, Bremy’s evil billionaire father, Atticus, is taking her lack of family loyalty very personally, and Bremy’s last tie to her old life, her reason behind her choices—her sister—is distancing herself as well.’
Oh Bremy! You just can’t take a hint can you? After Ryder Thwarts you fathers attempts at brainwashing the city you still under the assumption that your a super hero. Bremy dear, maybe you should get a day job (One that does not involve being a gopher to a place called The Pink Beaver, or wrestling.)
This book takes place a couple of months since the end of the last book. Bremy St. James is still dirt poor, making bad decisions, and she has been unable to find her mentor The Dark Ryder. Did I mention she’s also trying to avoid her boyfriend breaking up with her?
The Book opens with Bremy trying to catch a pair of robbers, where she gets into a very awkward scuffle and the robbers end up getting away. We find that since Ryder’s disappearance Bremy has been trying to catch some bad guys to hopefully catch Ryder’s attention and hopefully start some training and continue her ‘Super Hero’ life. Her dad is still free and rich, she also has not spoken to her Newly healed sister.
Wallace has done a fantastic job in keeping up with her characters in this book. Usually when I read a sequel, loses a bit of spark and the characters evolve into people that are difficult to relate with. I don’t have that problem with Sidekick Returns. I’m a Socially Awkward person, Bremy, without all her money, is a socially awkward person. I can see myself making some, if not all her mistakes. Wallace cast of characters are fun and lively and I really end up liking all of them.
I’m glad I read this sequel and I’m crossing my fingers for the third.
