age range: 9-12
The first in a three-book mid-level novel series by the number one Spider-Man fan and writer of hilarious fiction, Preeti Chhibber!
Peter Parker has been swinging and stalking his way through New York City as Spider-Man for only a few months, and balancing his double life is tricky. He goes to school and tries not to embarrass himself in front of his crush, GM; he takes pictures for the Daily Bugle and tries not to embarrass himself in front of his boss, J. Jonah Jameson; and he fights crime at night and… well, he always tries not to embarrass himself. Easier said than done when you’re a teenager with spider powers you’re still getting used to.
On top of all that, the notorious villain the Sand seller acts weirder than ever, social media seems to be taking its toll on MJ, and someone keeps trying to steal an artifact believed to be powered by alien matter. . . which can’t be good. Something strange is going on, and Peter is determined to figure out what it is before things go from weird to dangerous.
Told with the unmistakable voice of Preeti Chhibber, who balances wit and charm with teen seriousness and vulnerability, this series is full of action-adventure, humor, friendship and, of course,… heroism.
