Long Way Down

(1) YA Fifteen-year-old Will locates his brother's gun to avenge his death in this intense verse novel. On each floor of the descending elevator from his family's eighth floor apartment, Will is joined by yet another victim or perpetrator in the chain of violence that took his brother's life. The poetry in this high-stakes moral thriller is stark, fluently using line breaks and page turns for dramatic effect.
