Miles Morales: Spider-Man (Paperback)
Miles Morales is just your average teenager. Oh yeah, and he's Spider Man. But, lately, Miles's spidey-sense has been on the fritz, causing him to question his abilities. After his scholarship is threatened, Miles uncovers a chilling plot that puts his friends, his neighborhood, and himself at risk. It's time for Miles to suit up.
"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.
