"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's 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, amidst his teacher's lectures on the historical benefits of slavery and 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.

Miles Morales: Spider-Man by Jason Reynolds is an amazing book. I got a chance to start reading it about a month ago and so far it is really good. In the book a collage student by the name of Miles Morales, gets bitten by a spider at his uncle’s apartment in NY and ever since he has had superpowers. When he goes to school he gets a feeling that something is going wrong outside the classroom and he has to save whoever is in trouble. Every day he says he has to use the bathroom when in fact, he leaves the school to fight crime. One day he tries to ignore the feeling and stays in school all day. At the end of class he thinks that now the danger is not outside, it’s in. To find out how this amazing book ends you need to read the book Miles Morales: Spider-Man. Before reading the buyer needs to know one thing. The book contains some inappropriate language for younger children, but other than that nothing is too bad. I would recommend this book to teens and pre-teens especially. The good thing about this book is that it isn’t too long it’s only about 250 pages. Over all, this is an amazing book and I recommend you read it.

You know you're getting old when little things that you thought would never change, suddenly change. I grew up with Peter Parker as Spider-Man, but there's a new Spider-Man on the block and it's Miles Morales, a teenager who is half African-American and half Puerto Rican. Although it isn't explained, I get the sense that this is not a second Spider-Man, but that this is the Spider-Man in a rebooted universe. There are some similarities between Parker and Morales - teen, bright, radio-active spider bite, etc. - but the background heritage of Morales provides for some very different insight into being a superhero from the very white Peter Parker. Morales, and his best friend Ganke (who knows about Morales' spidey powers), are feeling the pressure from a pretty nasty teacher by the name of Chamberlain. Chamberlain almost goes overboard in his taking his top students down a notch or two. Almost. But Miles' spidey sense gets a little weird when he's around Chamberlain and he (Morales) has been having some very strange dreams and he finally decides to investigate things a little more. On the non-superhero side of the story, Miles learns that he has a cousin he never knew about. His uncle Aaron and his father were estranged, due to Aaron's shady past, but Miles had a close relationship with his uncle (despite his father's warnings to stay clear of him). When Miles and his father both receive letters from a teen in jail, claiming to be Aaron's son, they are taken by surprise. This was a really interesting book. It definitely has a bit of a darker tone than what I would expect in a story for middle-schoolers, but I really appreciated this 'minority' teen look at how to deal with super powers as well as school. The plot doesn't show up until half way through the book, though a sub-plot, dealing with typical teen issues (boy-likes-girl) is set up early and the sub-plot does flow into the plot. There was a lot that I liked about this book, mostly dealing with a minority teen having unique powers. The story itself was a little dull, though I recognized that much of it might appeal to a young student. But mostly I spent much of the book wondering what the heck was going on and whatever happened to Peter Parker. Perhaps the young reader wouldn't be so attached to an older character, or perhaps those picking up this book already know about this reboot, but given the popularity of the Spiderman movies (with Parker as Spiderman) it would seem to me that some sort of explanation of how/why this new name, new character would be in order. I had to check in with a friend who's a long-time comic reader to get the scoop on what this was all about. And I was not a fan at all of Morales' best friend Ganke. He came across as selfish and whiny and I couldn't wait to get away from him any time he appeared in the book. Looking for a good book? Miles Morales: Spider-Man by Jason Reynolds is a new take on the Spider-Man superhero character, targeted toward middle school students but older readers may be confused by the change. I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher, through Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.

As a teen book it was pretty good. It started a little slow but got a lot better as it continued. Great ending!
