In the opening pages Asian-American teenager Yu - a well-meaning but quiet loner-type who is an average student in New York City - finds a discarded Spider-Man suit (complete with the web-shooters) hidden in an alleyway near his school. He idolizes Spider-Man while he rock climbs, and when he leaves the gym he likes a picture of Spider-Man on his phone. One day however, he finds a well-made Spider-Man outfit thrown into the trash, and decides to take it home with him to mess around with. While feeling slightly heartbroken by the news, Yu lends his support to Emma and is satisfied with having her as a best friend.

Would a teen with no powers and a little experience in climbing gyms really be able to take over for Spider-Man, even temporarily?

Naturally as a teenager he tries it on, goes outside and starts posing and taking pictures of himself only to hear someone screaming for help. One caveat though is I do think this book is aimed at a younger audience as character motivations don’t get too deep and the end leans into near fan fiction at times, but i recommend it all the same. She is afraid of what he might think of her being gay but of course he is totally cool with it, but still hurts a little since it was obvious he had a crush on her. There's nothing wrong with that, of course, though given some of the thematic message of ItSV, I'd say that there's some argument there for the heartfelt idea of "anyone could put on the mask and be Spider-Man, even you" applying to the nature of this release. However he realizes they are besties and now is extremely excited to have a true friend that he can count on.

Sure, having an Asian-American kid involved in the world is cool, but why do there need to be so many guys in the suit? Loved by All: In contrast to his usual Hero with Bad Publicity reputation, Spidey is a beloved hometown hero in this story. Ordinary High-School Student: Yu has no superpowers and no business trying to emulate Spider-Man, but does so after being mistaken for the real thing because it's what Spidey would do.

Seeing the parallels with Peter's real struggles with Yu figuring out what he wants to do with his new found suit and webs. Yusuke weaves a complicated web in which you have so many questions, you NEED to read the book until you find them out. But Not Too Foreign: Yu is a Japanese-American high school student, making him an ideal viewpoint character to explore New York for a Japanese reader.
