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.

— Daniel


Shortlisted for the CILIP Carnegie Medal 2019

And then there were shots....

Everybody ran, ducked, hid, tucked themselves tight. Pressed our lips to the pavement and prayed the boom, followed by the buzz of a bullet, didn't meet us.

After Will's brother is shot in a gang crime, he knows the next steps. Don't cry. Don't snitch. Get revenge. So he gets in the lift with Shawn's gun, determined to follow The Rules. Only when the lift door opens, Buck walks in, Will's friend who died years ago. And Dani, who was shot years before that.

As more people from his past arrive, Will has to ask himself if he really knows what he's doing. This haunting, lyrical, powerful verse novel will blow you away.
