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.

Don’t do a “Spider-Man No More” story as your first/only book

the first 4/5 of the story is Miles wanting to be a regular student so no Spider-Man action at all.
Miles first dons his costume in the last hour of the story. The story does stick to landing.

His Spidersense at one point somehow warns him someone below is going to steal the shoes of another.

The narrator gives Miles quite a deep voice and accent and his mom a thick Spanish terrible accent. Both not consistent with how they are portrayed elsewhere.

I wanted to like it more...

First, I didn’t dislike this book, but I wanted to like it a lot more than I did. I feel like the ending came on quickly, that the resolution happened so fast, too fast. Also, I’m wondering if the villain in Miles’s story is a representation of the chronic and historic oppression that people of color face, specifically young black men. If that was the message, I heard it. It is certainly not your typical villain for a superhero story. Way to approach something from a different angle.

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.
