Everyone plays second fiddle at some point in their life. You aren’t chosen… as the one to love, to one to play on the team, as the best friend. It hurts. It makes you tougher. It teaches you a lesson. Or it burns your soul.
Characters sometimes become “sidekicks” instead of the main attraction. They don’t get the girl, save the day, or have much screen or page time… but we notice them, we care about them, we feel for them, sometimes we even secretly think they should have been the hero or heroine. They need to be the leading lady or man of their own life, right?
Over the next two months, in this issue of Femnista, we celebrate the sidekicks… the lesser-knowns who may spend more time in the background than at the forefront but who are never forgotten.

Taking Over The World Via the Internet: Valentine Wiggin in Ender’s Game, by Victoria Williams
