Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds

Fifteen-year-old Will has to find the person who killed his older brother and kill him. That is the rule. He grabs his brother’s gun and takes the elevator down from his mom’s eighth-floor apartment. As he descends, the car stops on each floor and a person from his past steps in and speaks. These people—all dead—have been killed by the cycle of gun violence and poverty that ensnares Will. The author’s stark, fluid words are to be read in a single gulp, and the last line is killer, or hopefully not. Ages 12 and up. - Ga
