Sidekicks by Jack Ferraiolo
By day, Scott Hutchinson is an ordinary teen. By night, he is Bright Boy, sidekick to Phantom Justice. Things are not always easy for a superhero and his sidekick. Scott longs to be rid of the school bully and to have a girlfriend. To make matters worse, during a fight with Phantom Justice’s arch enemy, Dr. Chaotic, Scott discovers Doctor Chaotic’s sidekick, Monkeywrench's, true identity. It turns out to be none other than Allison Mendez, the girl Scott has had a major crush on forever. As they start getting to know each other, they realize that the lines of good and evil are a lot more blurred than anyone could've ever imagined. Will Scott continue to be a superhero and fight his crush/arch nemesis, or will he become a lover instead of a fighter?
