TGIF: My favorite sidekicks!
I'm joining TGIF again today. This meme is hosted by GReads. It's a chance to recap the week on our blog and answer a question.

As always on Tuesday, I did a round-up of all the new YA releasing this week. So many great titles, including these two I reviewed:
Last Rite by Lisa Desrochers and Hemlock by Kathleen Peacock? Click on those red titles to be taken to my reviews in a new page.
Finally, today is FREEBIE FRIDAY and there's great stuff up for grabs. Scroll down to the prior post to check it out.
This week's TGIF question: We tend to gush over lead characters, but what about those in supporting roles? Who are some of your favorites?
I love sidekick characters. Behind every great hero/heroine is a great sidekick. I definitely think that many of them have so much personality that they deserve their own books! Here are some of my favorites.
Simon from the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare.
Beau from the Eternal Ones series by Kirsten Miller
Hana from the Delirium series by Lauren Oliver. (Yeah, she got a novella. But I hope she pops up in book three.)
On the contemporary front, Sarah Dessen always writes great secondary characters: Deb from What Happened to Goodbye, the Clementine's girls from Along for the Ride. Call me crazy -- I even love control freak Jennifer from This Lullaby.
An online survey asked people their favorite sidekick characters. The winner?
