Miles Morales: Spider-Man
Check out books by author Jason Reynolds. Reynolds began writing poetry at nine years old after being inspired by rap. According to his website, jasonwritesbooks.com, his one goal is to, “not write boring books.” Ms. Robertson will vouch he does not. Jason Reynolds has something for everyone, but he especially appeals to readers who don’t love reading. Ms. Robertson recommends When I was the Greatest or Ghost, both award winning novels. But if you are looking for something fun to get you started, Miles Morales: Spider-Man is a great place to start. From the publisher: 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.
