Sidekick Showcase [77] - A bit overprotective

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

For May let's honor thy Mother. We'll choose some awesome moms and also those characters that are mom-like or mentor-like that are females for Mother's Day May :D

My choice is Jocelyn Fray
The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Claire

Jocelyn isn't seen much early in the series, just talked about often by Clary. She whisked her daughter away to New York to keep her safe. There she raised her as a single parent with help from her friend Luke Garroway. Clary harbors a lot of resentment about secrets that Jocelyn kept from her, but as the reader I knew she wanted to protect her because she loved her daughter very much. Thankfully, she realizes that she made a mistake by withholding so much about her past from Clary, and opens up a lot more.

She is kind, loves her daughter more than anything, stubborn, brave, and revered by others.


“If you really love something, you never try to keep it the way it is forever. You have to let it be free to change.”

“I don't think she doesn't believe she can die. I think, just like you always did, she believes there are things worth dying for.”

“But Jocelyn...was not the kind of woman who wept, not the kind of woman who broke, or Valentine would have broken her long since.”
