Miles Morales
Miles Morales: Spider-Man | Jason Reynolds
"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 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.

The Book Raiders will be reading Miles Morales for the month of February thanks to the generosity of a fellow teacher. I am still weepy and in disbelief of the kindness that was shown to me. I cannot thank her enough but surely will hug her and tell her I love her every time I see her and I need to make sure she knows that she gave these babies a gift that will keep on giving. #forevergreatful #bookraiders

Finished this one up on a flight to Boston. I felt a bit so so about it but I really loved the ending. The villain was much more complicated than other marvel stories. I am hoping for a sequel though! I feel like I had a lot of questions...

Miles Morales brings a new perspective to the Spider-Man story and I am so here for it. Half-black, half Puerto Rican and living in a tough neighborhood, Miles watches his parents struggle to pay the bills. They‘ve sacrificed a lot to send him to a private school, and when he‘s framed for a crime he didn‘t commit, Miles starts to wonder what is really going on at his school.

Another great addition for classrooms and libraries serving teens.

This was so good! Everything that was missing from the comics were included in this novelization of Miles Morales. It‘s great that there‘s more diverse representation in comics and YA, but there needs to be nuance i the characters and their experiences. Miles comes from a working class family but attends a prestigious private HS on scholarship. That combined with being Spider-Man, Miles is up against a lot of pressure. This was an amazing read!

I have mixed feelings. I liked the story, but not as much as I expected and this is two narrators in a row I haven't loved. Guy Lockard narrates and I think it was a little too theatrical for me? I wasn't sold on his rendition of Miles' mom or best friend - both seemed to have only two levels - loud and louder! Reynolds does use the superhero plot to interrogate some serious race issues which was cool. Book 1/25 for the #hubchallenge #audiobooks

emtobiasz Ooh, I didn't know about the Hub Challenge (obviously I should be reading my YALSA emails a little closer)! I may have to join in, though 25 is a bit ambitious! 2y

This book was shelved as YA buy it felt a little more middle grade to me. It was pretty simple, not much character development or depth. There was only a little spider man action, at the end. Mostly it was a book about a boy, growing up and learning about who he is.

This was great! Reynolds twists the focus onto Miles's everyday life as our young Spider-Man faces off against his family's finances, his academic prospects, his role as a community member, poetry, and his potential romantic future. I ate it all up.

I did feel the superheroic climax fell a bit flat, but everything before and after it was tops. Be aware, though, it's got a younger YA tone to it. It might even work for mature middle grade readers.

Having an authentic black voice behind Miles lends the character a vantage point often lacking from the comics, and it is almost enough to compensate for the thin plot.

Me and my son had a great time today at the Boston Teen Author Festival! We got lost a few times and I'm exhausted but it was a good day.
I got all of these signed, the Spider-Man is signed to my son and he thought it was really cool to meet the author.
I got to see Leigh Bardugo on a panel but the line for her signature was a mile long so I passed.

I came to this one as a Jason Reynolds fan first and foremost. I'm not current on the Spider Man comics (I'm sure it's blasphemy to say I'm only familiar with Spider Man movies) but I'll read anything by Reynolds. His voice here is luminous, bringing depth to Miles' family, his world, and his struggles as a kid and as a super hero. I wish I could have stayed in this world longer and would LOVE to see more installments in the series.

I absolutely burned through this book in one sitting. Jason Reynolds is a master of character development, and he's done such a fantastic job with Miles Morales. I haven't read the comics yet but this is a Spiderman I can get behind. Well-paced story, and love how the relationships, both family and friendship, are so well fleshed out. Looking forward to reading more of Miles in the future.
