John David Anderson returns to the world of superheroes he created in Sidekicked with an entirely new cast of characters in Minion, a funny and emotional companion to his first breakout tween novel—perfect for superhero fans who also love the work of bestselling authors Rick Riordan, Louis Sachar, and Frank Cottrell Boyce.

Michael Morn might be a villain, but he’s really not a bad guy. When you live in New Liberty, known across the country as the City without a Super, there are only two kinds of people, after all: those who turn to crime and those who suffer. Michael and his adoptive father spend their days building boxes—special devices with mysterious abilities—which they sell to the mob. They provide for each other, they look out for each other, and they’d never betray each other.

But then a Super comes to town, and Michael’s world is thrown into disarray. The Comet could destroy everything Michael and his dad have built, the safe and secure life they’ve made for themselves. And now Michael and his father face a choice: to hold tight to their life or to let it unravel.

Quotes & Awards

  • “In this companion to Sidekicked, Anderson introduces a fascinating new cast of characters…The real strength lies in the writing, with its humorous, vivid descriptions, and strong, original voice…The story has a high-pitched climax, complete with a truly evil supervillain, yet leaves plenty of room for a sequel. This is an engaging, thought-provoking novel for middle-grade superhero fans.”

    Library Journal

  • “Michael’s musing that ‘sometimes it’s just hard to know what’s right and what’s best and why there even has to be a difference’ provides both a specific theme for this outing and an overall one for all of the author’s thought-provoking work to date.”

    Booklist

  • “One of the pleasures of superhero stories is guessing what’s coming next, but the joy here is that most of the time readers will guess wrong…The author trusts his readers enough to keep the characters ambiguous and to leave some mysteries unexplained at the end of the book. This novel should make Anderson’s parents proud, even if they threw away his comics when he was little. His readers will just be happy.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “As riveting a rendition of superdom as even Superman’s creator, Jerry Siegel, could have pulled off.”

    New York Times on Sidekicked

  • “From memorable characters to a complex yet accessible plot, this [is a] superhero story that any comics fan will enjoy.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Sidekicked
