The Swimmer. The Rebel. The Nerd.

All Ryan, Harley and Miles had in common was Isaac.

They lived different lives, had different interests and kept different secrets. But they shared the same best friend. They were sidekicks.

And now that Isaac's gone, what does that make them?

Will Kostakis, award-winning author of The First Third, perfectly depicts the pain and pleasure of this teenage world, piecing together three points of view with intricate splendour.

    Sidekicks has everything that I look for in a YA book, three excellent, well-developed characters, and an interesting story-telling technique, designed to give a multi-faceted view. The journey that passes as the story progresses is nothing short of captivating. The best 2016 YA book I have read so far, read it - you won't be disappointed!
