After her father’s death last year and, now, in the throes of a gnarly teacher’s whim as she thinks ahead to college, a small black arachnid bites fifteen-year-old Susie Speider on the finger and sends her nights into fantastical dreams about taking revenge on a teacher–a one Ms. Morlson–who, ultimately, holds Susie’s college aspirations in the sweaty palm of her cold calloused hand. But, after Susie figures out the dreams are real, she ups the ante and visits the teacher regularly but… as the spider. And, oh, by the way! Who is that boy spider munching on flies, hiding over there in the corner?

I had a bit of a hard time getting into the story at first as it is not something I am use to reading nor did it really seem to connect with me. However, after pushing into the story more I really found myself lost in Susie's adventures of dealing with growing up and having super spidery morphing powers.
A cute funny and fairly easy read for older children and above. I'm not sure morphing into a spider is really the bed time story you need to be telling your 3 year old.
