Long Way Down

This is a very unique and interesting book. I think the author Jason Reynolds wrote the book really well. The main character's name is William Holloman who is 15 years old and the book is set in quite a dodgy area in America. The story is about how when Will's brother dies Will follows the rules that were created and have been around for very long time.
Don't cry, don't snitch, get revenge. When he is going to get revenge he meets some people from his past in an elevator. The book is very dark and quite confusing at times and I don't think young children should read it. I really liked this book and I would recommend it to anyone who likes to read quite dark books. The book is quite haunting at times and it can make you feel sad because the characters emotions are really strong.
