Miles Morales: Spider-Man

Jason Reynolds

Reynolds (When I Was the Greatest, 2014) crafts an enjoyable piece of superhero fiction that adds flavor and complexity to the tale of Spider-Man. Miles Morales is a half-African-American/half-Puerto Rican teen who struggles with foes and feelings alike. He has a scholarship to an elite prep school in Brooklyn and enjoys chilling out with his best friend, Ganke, and crushing on the brainy and beautiful poet Alicia. But lately, Miles' spidey-sense has been on the fritz and he’s beginning to question his abilities. He’s also an emotional wreck, suffering from vivid nightmares and outbursts of rage. As he tries to get his life back on track, Miles uncovers a chilling plot, one that puts his friends, his neighborhood, and himself at risk!
