Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Batman has Robin, Wonder Woman has Wonder Girl, and Phantom Justice has Bright Boy, a.k.a. Scott Hutchinson, an ordinary schoolkid by day and a superfast, superstrong sidekick by night, fighting loyally next to his hero.But after an embarrassing incident involving his too-tight spandex costume, plus some signs that Phantom Justice may not be the good guy he pretends to be, Scott begins to question his role. With the help of a fellow sidekick, once his nemesis, Scott must decide if growing up means being loyal or stepping boldly to the center of things.Praise for SidekicksSTARRED REIVEW"Scott's present-tense narration keeps pedal to the metal from start to finish, and readers will be quickly won over as the two super-strong, super-fast, super-likable protagonists face both inner conflicts and a Dark Knight-ish villain as deeply psychotic and scary as he is super powerful. Look for more twists than a pretzel factory and a possible sequel." -Kirkus Reviews, starred reviewSTARRED REVIEW"A delightfully clever take on superheroes with this unpredictable adventure. Engaging territory as Ferraiolo reveals the story's true depths." -Publishers Weekly, starred review"An exciting, lightning-paced superhero plot that is also a thoughtful examination of superheroism."-The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"Ferraiolo starts the cape-flying action right from the opening pages. Ferraiolo is delightfully unafraid to inject irreverence into the superhero formula, adding plenty of humor to the high adventure high jinks."-Booklist
