Sidekick Showcase, previously known as Sidekick Saturday, is a weekly bookish meme, hosted here by Jaclyn at JC's Book Haven. There are many secondary characters that are as great as the primaries. In some cases, the sidekicks actually steal the show and you like them better than the heroine or hero. Maybe they didn't have enough page time for how great they were. Anyone can play along! I will post my Sidekicks on Saturday, then whichever day during the week that you would like to post yours, you can put your link in on my page. Just do the following:
• Choose a sidekick *or someone other than the hero or heroine* that you would like to put in the spotlight that fits in the week's topic
• Share a picture (if you can) and information about the character
• Give the title and author of a book the character can be found in
• Please don't include too many spoilers when describing why the character is such a great sidekick
• The day of your post, put your link in below and grab the code for your post so you can see the others that post their's throughout the week as well
Sidekick Showcase April - silly, joker, prankster, comedic relief, outrageous, and the like.
My choice is Suzume Hollis
Generation V by M.L. Brennan

AH I LOVE her!! I wanted to keep her a surprise for anyone reading the book, but I just can't help myself on this one. Suzume Hollis is a kitsune and her sly trickster personality fits it so well. She becomes Fortitude Scott's bodyguard, one you would definitely not want to cross. Her antics definitely bring humor to the story. She's quite hilarious, blunt, and pranks Fort a number of times. I would always be watching my back around her. Between changing his passwords for every online account he has, and being a constant pain in Fort's neck, she adorably becomes the catalyst for him growing a pair.
"No, I'm really sure that if you're going to have an open relationship, it has to be preagreed upon by both parties beforehand. Otherwise, that's just postsanctioned cheating, which is still cheating."
"Your mother will dock my pay if she sees you like this. And my family will never let me live it down if they know I let someone wipe the floor with you when it was my job to keep you safe."
"I'm so sorry. I never stopped to think about how my pain was going to inconvenience you."
"I understand, Fort, and you're forgiven."
"Facebook. Your settings don't log out when you close your browser."
"My computer is password-protected!"
"Which might have slowed me down if you didn't keep your passwords listed on an index card in your desk drawer."
Horror filled me. "You have my passwords?" I asked.
"Don't worry, I changed all of them for you."
"How did you get in?" I asked. It didn't bother me how she got in; I just cared that she was here at all, but I knew that she'd love the chance to show how clever she was.
"You have a loose window screen and a really nice maple tree that is a few years overdue for a pruning. I'm surprised that you don't have colonies of squirrels camping out under your bed." She was pleased, and her eyes sparkled even in the darkness.
