Read Miles Morales Online Free - "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.

Before reading this novel, I thought: COOL! A Black and Puerto Rican superhero slinging webs and saving lives!
After reading, I think the same thing... but MAN is there so much more to this book than that.
Truthfully, I was expecting Spider-Man's regular antics, just with some brown skin beneath...

Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for approving my request for a free digital copy in exchange for a review.
Can I have sequel, please? Please make this a series!
"Miles Morales" is my first foray into the world of Jason Reynolds and I am now and will forever be a full time resident. This book...

I... did not like this.
This was not what I was expecting, it reads as a middle grade book and even when the book touches important topics, I felt that it did so in a very shallow way. The writing was... it was quite juvenile and even when this book has very little Spider-Man and there's a lot of...

I loved this! Even though it was about a superhero it felt very real. Miles’s situation is one that many people are in and I feel like a lot of people could relate to his story. I also liked how this book touches upon the prison system and the effects it has. Overall, this book is a perfect blend...

One of the worst books I've ever read. There is no plot or story. A Spider-Man book where nothing really happens except Miles goes to school for a week. We get no answers why this teacher is harassing Miles, why all these Mr. Chamberlains are targeting minority youths or why they are having the s...

Solid execution and a great introduction (for me) to the character of Miles Morales. I appreciated how Reynolds put the Spider-Man part on the back burner and gave us a (mostly) down-to-earth story about a (mostly) down-to-earth kid. The dialogue popped and while there may not have been...

FINALLY one of these Marvel or DC tie-in books that I've ENJOYED. A LOT. LOVED.
I hope there are more especially w the Miles animated movie coming out next? year. It's great because it reads like a Reynolds book that just happens to be about Spider-Man.

Miles Morales Spider-Man has been one of my most anticipated reads for a little while now. I’ve been hearing amazing things not only just about this book but also about all of Jason Reynolds’s work. I was so excited to read this super hero story but unfortunately I was quite le...

Read this in one sitting. Loved all the characters, plus Reynolds' writing was so on point to what's currently going on. An important and thought-provoking Spider-Man and I am so overjoyed that Miles' Puerto Rican heritage wasn't erased.
