are two ways of looking at this story First one I could just mention the fact that there s no character development, the characters in it are basic stereotypes of a lot of fantasy tropes, the world building is kept to a minimum, and then there s the fact that practically all characters are insane Bottom Line, this reads as a long farce and did I mention that my sense of humour is practically undeveloped when it comes to what I see as a long combination of crazy things The thing is, I m one of those people that after the first stand up comedy routine number, would get bored senseless with the whole thing This means that after having read the first pages of this, I started to get worriedInsanity was flowing around like large elephant clouds, the main character with her crazy and at times incomprehensible grammar was getting on my nerves, and I was ready to admit that I was not this book s intended audience.In fact, I may even have whinned a little to my co blogger Isa, you like comic books I have just the story for you But here s the strange thing, after a while Bremy s insaneway of beingstarted growing on me a tad like a fungus.Okay, it helped that I started seeing this in my head as a movie, or even a cartoon There were dashes of Sailor Moon villains, scenes a la Batman first movie with Jack Nicholson , Kim Possible and so on and onSecond one Well this is a story inspired by comic books Right lol with a comic book feeling to it, in which the main character is a hero wanna be.This means that the characters are stereotyped as they normally are in these type of stories The fact that the author managed to create an interesting story based on stereotypes, is something to give credit for.Being a hero isn t easy, which translates into a long number of oddities and disasters just waiting to happen to our reckless and impetuous heroine Things that every self possessed hero must be in possession of A master That Obi wan rat that trains the Kun Fu Panda or even what s the name of the Ninja Turtles sensei guy Yes, that exists in here, with his very zen characteristics So, master thing Check The nerd geek electronic friend able to produce magic with his fingers Check The strange friend who hates her guts but is willing, from time to time, to tolerate our heroine s presence.Yes, also here she s also a little scary oO The pose charm hair OUTFIT that very girl needs in order to be a proper heroine check, check and double check The idol, that elusive person that inspires our wanna be heroine to be greater than what she actually is Check hopefully in the next book there will beRyder yes That attractive dude who looks remarkably like Clark Kent except this guy s blonde lolThis was wickedly amusing Oh, and let s not forget the villain, who is muchclose to Bremy than she would likeAnd did I mention the twin sister who is in a wheelchair As you can see I decided to go with the second perspective.It s a book that needs to be approached in a very particular way just let yourself go with the flow , but whose imagination needs to be cheered.I still think this would make a great tv series or movie Hey, someone directed My Super Ex girlfriend and this is so much better for a younger audience.As an actual book, with another editing to rid it of some grammatical errors , some basic character development, keeping in mind, that it s always a positive thing when a story keeps some sort of equilibrium between theinsane parts and the story development, this would make an awesome story This means that despite its somewhat off to a rocky start , I ll definitely be reading any follow up to this story You know those party favors that you open and all kinds of confetti and streamers pop out at you That s what Sidekick by Auralee Wallace did when I opened page one and the frenzied, crazy and totally hysterical feel never left Not only is this so over the top funny that bursts of laughter could be heard about every fourth word, but at one point I think I was actually looking for a super hero costume and was disappointed when Bremy St James found the only one in the shop Face it, at one point You know those party favors that you open and all kinds of confetti and streamers pop out at you That s what Sidekick by Auralee Wallace did when I opened page one and the frenzied, crazy and totally hysterical feel never left Not only is this so over the top funny that bursts of laughter could be heard about every fourth word, but at one point I think I was actually looking for a super hero costume and was disappointed when Bremy St James found the only one in the shop Face it, at one point or another we ALL wanted to be a super hero, face down the bad guys, have cool gadgets, leap skyscrapers and run at super speed, wearing awesome high heeled boots, of course Bremy comes from money and power, she ran from it when things her father was doing were unconscionable Struggling to make it on her own and unprepared for the real world and what it entails, Bremy becomes fascinated by a vigilante crusader for justice, Dark Ryder, the woman she wished she could be When Bremy becomes determined to meet and apprentice under this larger than life woman, let s just say, our Bremy is a walking, breathing one woman disaster area, in spite of her noble intentions When she catches the eye of a young reporter, there is a tenuous romance blooming, but can she trust him And what about her evil father What heinous experiments is he up to now Is her handicapped twin going to be part of his next experiment How can she stop the all powerful Atticus St James What goes on inside the brilliantly clever mind of Auralee Wallace I believe she has written one of the best reads ever Being inside the mind of Bremy is like being in the eye of a tornado, chaos is pinning around you and you know soon it will shift and you will be flying at a hundred miles an hour Each scene, the world and each character addsbrilliance to this literary gem about a young woman ill prepared for reality who has only the best of intentions in her heart In turn, heart warming, comical and freeing, Ms Wallace and her writing hasthan connected with me, she

everybody at some point during their life wanted to be a superhero What isn t to be desired about a life that thrives on secret identities, awesome gadgets, sick as bro costumes and lets face it hot men It is very rare however that you find a novel that has a woman in this role, let alone two It is also very rare that you find a novel that is excellently written with rich characters where you are left wantingThis is one of those ones fellow lovers of literature, and you need to snap this one up as soon as it is released Wallace has created a fantastic novel with a main character who will have you in stitches Bremy is ridiculous, but in a good way She is also a rather pathetic superhero, but in a good way I assure you.Bremy is trying to get her life together She has recently been exiled by her father and is trying to do what normal people do get a job and move out of their shitty apartment where their toilet is near their bed Her mob boss landlord is hounding her for rent in hilarious conversations I must add but just as she is collecting the money she gets robbed Her second attempt at paying her rent ends in hundreds of people being showered, unintentionally, with her money Then of course there is this mysterious Dark Ryder, the vigilante who saves people, who also ends up taking Bremy under her wing, unintentionally of course as is the Bremy way.I admire so much about Bremy, and I think this comes down to Wallace s writing She was able to brilliantly craft a main character that you loved to laugh at and at the same time you loved to root for Although the romance in this one falls a bit flat, the main character and the supporting characters are amazing Bart Queenie for LIFE This one needs to be a movie, at the very least a long running TV show.Wallace s writing is addictive and her dialogue is wittingly laugh out loud funny Like actually, there were bits were I was laughing like a weirdo because I was by myself..just laughing It happens The whole story was fantastic Definitely resembles a batman esk theme, which was rather great to read I can t wait to read what ever Wallace comes up with next, I m secretly hoping it is a sequel to Sidekick When I saw Sidekick pop up on Netgalley I was instantly intrigued by the superhero inspired cover I couldn t resist taking a chance on Sidekick and I m very glad I did The story follows Bremy the daughter of a very rich family who has left behind her socialite partying lifestyle for independence in the big city Living undercover and struggling to make rent Bremy needs to make money fast.After a couple of

various crimes and threatening local citizens, Bremy meets Dark Ryder the city s famous vigilante superhero With her money problems spiralling and her newfound taste for fighting crime Bremy embarks on a new venture to become Dark Ryder s sidekick Of course, this doesn t go all that smoothly for Bremy as with no real superhero skills she has to muddle her way through some tricky situations on her determined attitude alone.As a protagonist I really enjoyed following Bremy on her journey, she is a strong character and definitely grew over the course of the story The book also has a whole host of other interesting characters from Bremy s father twin sister, to handsome reporter Pierce and bizarre neighbour Queenie.Sidekick is a refreshing, fun read and an impressive debut This unique story is

character that I relate, connect and understand Bremy is so real for me and I have shared some good laughs with her and her gang having my own Scooby Gang Things were definitely looking up Now, technically, I did still owe money to two psychopaths, and the person I lovedthan anyone else in the world wasn t speaking to me This is not a particularly fresh idea, but still cool to read about It s not a superhero with power kind of book,like a superhero with gadgets, sort of like Batman I really like this book, it was ver addictive and not easy to put down It has a few weakeness such as a bit anti climatic ending and not a very descriptive world built I only want to say Please give meI need to know the rest I m certain this could not be the ending of it I totally love this genre, comics
