Long Way DownLong Way Down by Jason Reynolds
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book has gorgeous verse, a fast pace, and an interesting premise.

15-year-old Will decides to follow the code that has been passed down in his family for generations, and murder the boy whom he believes shot his older brother. Will tucks a gun into his waistband and gets on the elevator to take the journey towards this choice. But at every floor, someone gets on the elevator who sheds a new light on the choice that he plans to make.

The value of this story is in the journey, so I won’t say more, other than that I enjoyed the journey, as much as you enjoy anything that is intense and emotional.
