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.

Roots or Spider-Man?

This was well written, maybe the best I’ve listen to and Guy Lockard... man dude is on point, gives allot of emotion. I don’t know allot about this back story but I the spiderverse movie, Miles pop was a police man, didn’t know which one is accurate.

My biggest problem with this is that this was some civil rights statement that was mixed in what I thought would b Spider-Man, doing what Spider-Man does.

I don’t like the fact that this was a book about the white man trying to keep the black man down... only thing that was missing was the “N” word, hey the used monkey. I mean the old white dude even had a whip. How does this even go on without the school knowing about it and then what school does this happen in? If this was set in the 60’s I’d get it, but it’s not.

I honestly can’t believe that this was published as a Spider-Man book, I would not recommend this book for kids. I just don’t understand why some of us black people cannot move forward and stop talking racism and slavery it just fills your head with negativity. Jesus died to forgive our sins and we are supposed to forgive as well. We were made in Gods imagine, he forgave the Israelites for turning to other Gods. If he didn’t forgive and send his son, we’d all be doomed. So get that hateraid out of your heart because it’s not good.

If you feel the need to write a book about this kind of stuff, please just keep it out of the superhero books.

Interesting Book

I enjoyed it a lot, but felt it ended fast. i was just getting into everything, but I suppose the plot had to be wrapped up. I wanted more adventures with miles, I wanted him to spill more salsa.

Great book for children and adults!

I got this book for my son to listen to for a school project and ended up liking it a lot myself. I have all ways loved comics and such, but the humor and sarcasm make it really enjoyable for all ages. It's well worth it for a family trip of even if you're a big kid at heart like me. I highly recommend it.
