For "something pretty" to share in today's #Riotgrams, I want to go with C.B. Lee's novel Not Your Sidekick. Many times, whether I get a novel in print or as an ebook makes little difference to me. This is one case where I'm so glad I went with the paperback. I loved the artwork on the cover and in the book. It really added something special to the experience. #CBLee #art #artwork #coverart #NotYourSidekick #WNDB #weneeddiversebooks

Pickpick

I loved Not Your Sidekick a lot. The book is charming and cute, cleverly placing a lot of weighty messages in the background. Anyone who loves comic book superhero fun should enjoy this. The twist is that it's set in a dystopian future, and all these superhero/supervillain fights are part of a larger conspiracy. The ending is a bit rough; I hope book two might better explain how Jess and her parents aren't in prison. #YALit #superhero #CBLee #WNDB

BillBlume Also want to add how much I enjoyed the artwork on the cover and in the chapter headers. Definitely added to my reading experience. 3y

I own a first gen nook and often use it to borrow books from the library, but Not Your Sidekick is one of those rare books that reminds me why there's no replacement for print. As much as I enjoy C.B. Lee's story, the artwork for the cover and chapter headers by C.B. Messer add something extra special to this paperback. #NotYourSidekick #CBLee #CBMesser #CoverPorn #artwork #CoverArt #superhero #superheroes

"Why is Shakespeare allowed but Star Wars isn't?"

WhaaaAAAAT?! There's no Star Wars in this future?!?!? C.B. Lee, what kind of hell have you created here? #AmReading #AmHorrified#YALit #NotYourSidekick #StarWars #Shakespeare #CBLee #Banned #superhero #superheroes #youngadultbooks #dystopian? #NOOOOOOOOO!

Been stalking the tracking info for this book for about a week now. I'd decided last night what I was going to read next, even started that book. Only, now that Not Your Sidekick has arrived, plans have changed. So many things about C.B. Lee's book excite me: a bisexual main character in a YA superhero story...I am so on board. #NotYourSidekick #CBLee #YALit #diversity #WeNeedDiverseBooks #WNDB #superhero #superheroes #bisexual #youngadultbooks
