Publisher's Summary

"Everyone gets mad at hustlers, especially if you're on the victim side of the hustle. And Miles knew hustling was in his veins."

Miles Morales is just your average teenager. Dinner every Sunday with his parents, chilling out playing old-school video games with his best friend, Ganke, crushing on brainy, beautiful poet Alicia. He's even got a scholarship spot at the prestigious Brooklyn Visions Academy. Oh yeah, and he's Spider-Man.

But lately Miles' Spidey sense has been on the fritz. When a misunderstanding leads to his suspension from school, Miles begins to question his abilities. After all, his dad and uncle were Brooklyn jack-boys with criminal records. Maybe kids like Miles aren't meant to be superheroes. Maybe Miles should take his dad's advice and focus on saving himself.

As Miles tries to get his school life back on track, he can't shake the vivid nightmares that continue to haunt him. Nor can he avoid the relentless buzz of his Spidey sense every day in history class, amid his teacher's lectures on the historical benefits of slavery and the importance of the modern-day prison system. But after his scholarship is threatened, Miles uncovers a chilling plot, one that puts his friends, his neighborhood, and himself at risk.

It's time for Miles to suit up.

"You Are Just Like Me"

A haunting line that resonates through the book, resulting in expertly crafted and truly intimate tension. Reynolds managed to capture Miles's psyche and struggles, bringing social issues into the personal world of a super hero. Very relevant in today's America, the book presents antagonists that reflect a real and looming threat in contemporary society.

Great book but the ending makes me cry 😥 in a bad way

Why didn’t they just do mysterio

Look I love this book it is fantast from plot twist to plot twist but the last plot twist just makes me cry spoiler warning ⚠️ The villain is just a very old man what kind of villain is that i see what he was going for but It could’ve been much better it could’ve been fixed very easily after the villain is dead it could’ve been mysterio but overall I hope this turns into a movie or a tv show or even a book series but I loved it and recommend it.

Quick Thlughts

Guy Lockard does a great exasperated angsts teenage voice, but his Hispanic accent comes off Jamaican. The story takes a hard turn into antiquated racism in the third act that I didn’t quite care for. I didn’t think it really servered the character or the story.

All Miles Morales , Almost Zero Spiderma

so this book is about Miles Morales with a minutes of spiderman action. which if I'm being honest the later comics kind of follow this storyline of the kid behind the mask . I dont really like it especially since this book tackles race and breaking the trend subjects which I mean sage, white knight and March all do better job being entertaining and telling some truth on race. anyways not a spiderman story

Not What You Expect

I absolutely loved this book. Honestly, I thought it was going to be “another” super hero saves the world book. Not that there’s anything wrong with that because I’m a huge fan of this genre. However, the premise behind this book goes so much deeper. The message resonates deeply in our society around the perceptions we have regarding different backgrounds and the external and internal fight one undergoes dealing with these perceptions. Anyway, great book a definite read especially for those individuals from ethnic backgrounds that want to see themselves in literature.
