Little Hacker Muffet
sat on her tuffet
destroying her cords and Way.
Along came a hacker named Spider,
who sat down beside her
and frightened his opponent away.
When Fet, one of the most skilled hackers in the Legends, discovers her best friend and leader of her group has been abducted and held for ransom, she must escape unnoticed and find Peep before it’s too late.
When Spider, a new recruit training to join her hacker ring, slips out with her and claims to have a plan to save her friend, Fet is forced to bring him along. As she discovers he’s not who he claims to be, she faces grave danger and learns just how deadly a spider bite can be
|Robinson had a treat in store for her fans and that was surprising them with the release of Along Came A Spider, fortunately, I was in the know and unfortunately I had no one to share my experience with!
There has been a surge of retellings lately, but this one I can honestly say is really unique. Miss Muffet and the Spider are famous thanks to the childhood nursery rhyme, but in this retelling, Muffet is a brilliant hacker and Spider…well, he’s still that pest that sidles right beside her. He doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon either [thankfully!]
The characters are wonderful and they’re on a mission. Fet is edgy, unique and serious about her position. Spider is equally edgy and just as fun. There are twists and turns along the way and oh yeah… Other nursery rhyme characters that you’ll recognize, too.
A wholly unique idea…and a blast! I can assure you that you’ve never seen nursery rhymes like this before. 😉 *cue glowstick war*
For the unique idea and edgy rendition, I gave it 4 savvy crowns.
