Staff Reviews

A powerful impactful story of revenge. How it twists and turns and manipulates the mind. Guilt and anger unroll down seven floors as Jason Reynolds takes fifteen year old Will and us for a ride through the painful past. Told entirely in verse. Completely engaging and masterfully tight.

“A novel in verse that spans the length of time it takes for an elevator to descend, Long Way Down finds Will mourning the death of his brother and grappling with the burden of avenging his murder. Will’s grief permeates every page, from his recollections of everyday childhood memories to his encounters with other figures from his past whose lives were destroyed by gun violence. Jason Reynolds says more with a stanza than most authors can say with a chapter.”
