About the Book

Spider Brains: A Love Story - Read an Excerpt
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?
