Terry Highland isn't like other kids. Or is she? Sure, Terry is the daughter of an ex-superhero sidekick and, yeah, she has powers of her own, too, but when you're a new student at a school like Shuster Academy that's hardly out of the ordinary! Terry has a pyromaniac firestarter in homeroom, a werewolf in Geometry, killer robots in gym--and that's just before lunch! Sounds like a superteen's dream come true, doesn't it? There's just one catch: In order to make the grade at this school, you can't use your powers. So when three new vigilantes burst on to the scene calling themselves "Biff," "Bam," and "Pow," it has the whole student body buzzing and the administration on the lookout for the kids that would dare to break the Academy's most essential rule. Can Terry and her friends solve the mystery without getting caught in the middle? SIDEKICKS turns the superhero genre on its head, following powered kids who would rather start food fights than fist fights and are more worried about what to do on a Friday night than the next contrived evil plot.
