**Sidekick Showcase ~ #37**

Sidekick Showcase (previously known as Sidekick Saturday) is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jaclyn at JC's Book Haven. There are many secondary characters that are as great as the primaries. In some cases, the sidekicks actually steal the show and you like them better than the heroine or hero. Maybe they didn't have enough page time for how great they were. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Choose a sidekick *or someone other than the hero or heroine* that you would like to put in the spotlight that fits in this week's type

• Share a picture (if possible) and information about the character
• Give the title and author of a book the character can be found in
• Please don't include too many spoilers when describing why the character is such a great sidekick
• Put your link in the Linky thing and comment

April's theme ~ silly, joker, prankster, comedic relief, outrageous, and the like...   

My choice of character: 
from C.J. Duggan's Summer Series

Ringer is one of those important element of the group. He's a jokester, the clown, never serious. He's never the one that gets the girl but he's always good for a laugh. Ringer's actually kinda charming...when he's not being absurd. :)

"NO WAY! He brought the SHAGGIN' WAGON!" Ringer called.

I spun around. "The what?"

A shirtless Ringer strode up the track with a fishing rod slung over his shoulder. Behind him trailed Stan, Toby and a petite girl with a pixie haircut.

Ringer passed me, admiring the van. "The Shaggin' Wagon; what's what it's called," he laughed.

"THAT'S what you call it?" I asked Ringer in horror, standing up from my chair.

Ringer shrugged, dumping his fishing gear in the back of Sean's ute. "The mattress is a bit of a red flag, don't you think?"

"Shut up, Ringer," warned Chris as he approached from the track. He gave Ringer a shove as he joined the group.

Ringer shoved him right back. "How many miles has she clocked up now, you old stud?"

The macho rough-housing escalated, scuffing up dust as Ringer trapped Chris in a headlock.
--Ringer, Tammy, & Chris, That One Summer

Not what you want to hear your friend telling the girl you see as a potential girlfriend. :)


  1. Oh! I've had my eye on Ringer, and now I really want to read it.

  2. Ringer sounds like a lot of fun! Thanks for introducing me to him Brandee. Have a great week :D


Now you know what I think...what are your thoughts??
