It is important to have diverse books available to students because they have different values and cultures. The family [in the book] is black, they have family dinners on Sunday, and no phones at the table. 

The book attracted me because I grew up watching spider man as a kid and I like that he has different powers than the real Spiderman. He can go invisible, he has a lightning web, and he has friends from different worlds.

I learned that racist comments are not in this book. I learned to help people.

Have you made any personal connections to your book?

Yea because I’m black, he's black, he has a family and I have a family. He has family dinners and I have family dinners.
