Mrs Pollard, St John Fisher RC High School

Long Way Down

A very cleverly written book using blank verse where even the layout of the words generates suspense. Will's brother Will's brother Shawn has been shot dead and Will's first thought is to 'follow the rules' and take revenge. Stepping into the elevator with a gun in his waistband he encounters ghosts from the past. a new one at each floor the elevator stops at. These six ghosts have all died by being shot and range from Will's father to childhood friend Dani to Shawn. By the time the elevator reaches the ground floor, conversations have been had but we are left hanging by the last words from Shawn: 'You coming?' What does Will do? Make up your own mind on this one!
