Sidekick Showcase Wk 4

This weekly book meme is hosted by the fantastic Jaclyn over at JC's Book Haven 

My pick of the week:
Ruthie from A Charmed Life series!

One of these days, I will move on from all these Jenny B. Jones sidekicks... But today is not that day! :D

The best way to describe Ruthie is that she's like a bumble-bee full of honey returning to its queen (with Bella, of course, being the queen).  Weird description, eh? But that's what she reminds me of.  She's a loyal puppy and the perfect side-kick for sassy Bella.   She is hilarious in her own way, and her romance with Budge is so adorable! I also love how Ruthie isn't your traditional PK.  She may dress like a punk-rock, and look all tough, but she's a total teddy bear.  There's this one scene that I really love, where Cherry is questioning her faith in God, and Bella is trying to reassure her, but feeling like she's failing miserably.  Afterwards, Bella asks Ruthie why she didn't help out or something because after all, she is the pastor's daughter.  Surely, Bella grouches, Ruthie would have been better at this; Ruthie merely says that she did help.  Bella challenges her and asks what "one thing of significance" she did. Ruthie's reply? 

"Prayed."  Ruthie locks her eyes with mine. "I prayed the entire time you were talking."
-Jenny B Jones

Hope all of you had a wonderful Valentine's! <3

I have a handful of characters I cast multiple times for the Sidekick meme, I love them so much. I like the sound of Ruthie, punk rock, but soft and gooey. Great pick!!

Oh I love that cover! Ruthie sounds amazing though. I love your bumble-bee description of her. That quote! Incredibly awesome. I hope your Valentine's was spectacular :D Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.
