Waiting on Wednesday with School For Sidekicks


Being a hero isn't always what it's cracked up to be in this funny and genuine novel from adult fantasy author Kelly McCullough.

Evan Quick is a GIANT superhero geek who dreams of one day becoming a superhero himself. Every morning he checks to see if he's developed his powers overnight, and every day there's nothing. No flying, no super strength, no invulnerability—that always hurts to check—no telepathy, no magic. Not even the ability to turn off the alarm clock without smacking the switch.

But then Evan somehow manages to survive a supervillian's death ray, and is sent to the Academy for Metahuman Operatives. Unfortunately, his new school is not what he expected, and instead of fighting bad guys, Evan finds himself blacklisted, and on the wrong side of the school's director. If Evan ever wants to realize his dream, he must convince his "mentor" Foxman, a semi-retired has-been, to become a real hero once again.

This kinda sounds like Sky High to me, so I am excited to see how it goes! I loved that movie!

  1. Sounds like it could be super fun. Sidekicks are underrated and do a lot of work that goes unrecognized. Lol!
    Happy reading!

  3. My first thought upon seeing the title was that it sounded just like Sky High. Then I read the post and see you thought the same! That's one of my favorite movies. And I'm on a bit of a superhero craze right now, so you can say I'm super excited for this one. Though I hadn't heard of it before today! Great pick.
