Finalist for a Lambda Literary Award

Ryan, Harley, and Miles are very different people—the swimmer, the rebel, and the nerd. All they’ve ever had in common is Isaac, their shared best friend.

When Isaac dies unexpectedly, the three boys must come to terms with their grief and the impact Isaac had on each of their lives. In his absence, Ryan, Harley, and Miles discover things about one another they never saw before and realize there may be more tying them together than just Isaac.

In this intricately woven story told in three parts, award-winning Australian author Will Kostakis makes his American debut with a heartwarming, masterfully written novel about grief, self-discovery, and the connections that tie us all together.

Review Quotes

“A hypnotic story of friendship, loss, grief, self-discovery, and—most of all—love.”

Jennifer Niven, New York Times bestselling author

“A masterfully written story filled with heart, sorrow, and hope.”

Laurie Halse Anderson, New York Times bestselling author

“A poignant exploration of grief.”

Entertainment Weekly

“Will Kostakis has written a vibrant, engaging book about relationships, coming out, divorce, and loss—and still managed to work in lots of laughs.”

Sydney Morning Herald

“Kostakis’s…literary polish and deep understanding of teen storytelling is compelling and nuanced from the first page… An excellent exploration of grief from a rising talent that belongs in all libraries serving teens.”

School Library Journal (starred review)

“Kostakis makes good use of the three characters’ narratives, moving from relatable Ryan to sympathetic Harley and finally the initially unprepossessing Miles, whose inability to wear a social mask and habit of seeing his life as a movie make him a touching narrator.”

Publishers Weekly

“America, you are about to be introduced to the heartfelt, funny, wrenching, and absolutely wonderful work of Will Kostakis. The Sidekicks will make your heart ache for Ryan, Harley, and Miles’ loss, but also for what they gain in themselves and in each other.”

Sara Farizan, author of If You Could Be Mine
