How would you like to be a sidekick to a superhero? Sounds like a pretty sweet right? Maybe not, at least not if the hero you are supposed to be a sidekick to has checked out of the superhero business and is definitely not in peak superhero condition. The problem is that Drew and the city’s other super hero personnel are being captured by a mysterious supervillain and he is constantly being rescued by another sidekick’s superhero. If middle school wasn’t bad enough! Not only does he have to deal with horrible lunches, homework, and girl problems like other middle school students, he also has to worry about trying to survive danger with not-so-super superpowers. Find out how a 13-year-old, superish sidekick is supposed to save his city and manage middle school. Read Sidekicked by John David Anderson.  (Prepared by:  Leslie Cooper, Stiles Point Elementary, South Carolina Children's Books Award Nominee, 2016)
