Sidekick by Natalie Whipple blog tour/ review


Title: Sidekick
Author: Natalie Whipple
Publisher: Whipple House
Date of Publication: November 10, 2015


Russ is a high school football player who feels like he always comes in second to his best friend, Garret. In sports. In school. With girls. Well, he's tired of it, and he gets the rather foolish idea that if he can win the heart of the new girl in town before Garret he can prove he's not just sloppy seconds.

His plan? Use his anime-obsessed sister's group, who has befriended the new girl, to get closer to her. He'd never tell the team, but he's been going to Anime Night for years and might even enjoy it. That would ruin his reputation, just like his secret love for cooking and James Taylor.

But pretending to be something you aren't catches up to you eventually, and Russ can only get away with living two lives for so long. As more than one person reveals they have something to hide, Russ must figure out what and who he really wants in his life. And more than that, he needs the courage to make it happen.

My Review: 
5/5 stars 
 Amazing book. I love Natalie Whipples books. She does a fantastic job of packing so much into the little novels. You have a story however their is so much to get out of it.
  This book was great. Whipple teaches so many lessons that most teens face in their lifes. Not everybody is perfect so why try to be? 

Russ and the crew felt real. I felt like I was another person  in the novel watching the story unfold. There were twists making the book so interesting . There was never a point  to loose focus. The characters were lovely ( even the characters I wanted to hate) and so understandable. Whipple might not be in highschool but she sure understand how it is being a teenager. 

So much more. Read it and see for your selfs. Ps. All of her books are great. My two top favs are Transparent & Fish Out Of Water now adding this one to that list ! 
I own all of them but her very recent release! Still need to read RELAX , I'm A Ninja ! 

About Natalie Whipple

Natalie Whipple grew up in the Bay Area and relocated to Utah for high school, which was quite the culture shock for her anime-loving teen self. But the Rocky Mountains eventually won her over, and she stuck around to earn her degree in English linguistics at BYU, with a minor in editing. Natalie still lives in Utah with her husband and three kids, and keeps the local Asian market in business with all her attempts to cook.

She is the author of the TRANSPARENT series, HOUSE OF IVY & SORROW, the I'M A NINJA series, FISH OUT OF WATER, and MY LITTLE BRONY (under K.M. Hayes). In addition to that, she is on the writing team for the cRPG Torment: Tides of Numenera that should be out sometime in 2015.

Giveaway: ( Oops! I read again giveaway) We're giving away a Kindle copy of SIDEKICK, open internationally.
