Sidekicks!

If you're looking for an older chapter book or a young YA book for your child (or yourself), look no further! Sidekicks, by Jack Ferraiolo (who also writes for WordGirl), is out in paperback as of today, and it is AWESOME. It had never occurred to us to wonder what would happen if a superhero's sidekick and a supervillain's sidekick went to the same school- and discovered each other's secret identities. It seems like tons of stories are written about the hero or the villain, but this book proves that sometimes the sidekicks are way more interesting.

We're extra-excited about this book right now, because the author is very cool and has agreed to talk with our Heroes and Villains summer camp via Skype. Campers, start thinking of the questions you want to ask!
