All the superheroes died, who’s left?

My life is full of choices. Paper or plastic, cake or pie, tackle my chem homework or give a supervillain a well-deserved smackdown? (The answer’s obvious: cake.) When the leader of the world’s most powerful superhero team asked me to become Raven, his apprentice, that was the easiest choice ever. But I blew it.

This was a fun book. The plot wasn't really anything new, but the story was interesting, fun, and action packed enough. It was an easy read that hooked me in pretty quick, and kept me wanting to keep reading the whole time.

Great story

Really well thought out characters and situations. The action is non stop and exciting. Getting to know the other Sidekicks and their powers is interesting and they keep you guessing clear through to the end. I can't wait to start the next book in this series. I would recommend this story to any reader who is into superhero stories.

"Sidekicks" by Arthur Mayor is a bit edgier than some of the other teen superhero novels I've read, but it's cool. Great narrative voice (Raven is an excellent hero with hints at a troubled background), genuine emotion and relationship conflict, and a fast-pace. Great action scenes.

Great story, love the super hero sidekicks

I really enjoyed this book. Not used to the language but most wouldn’t have even noticed. This book was nonstop action with plenty of twists.

I love the realistic feel.

Their is very lil plot armor here. Actions have effects and no explain shit way with advanced tech or powers. You just picked up a new fan.
