Long Way Down

The Long Way Down is a thrilling fiction book by Jason Reynolds that keeps the reader on-edge at all times. Each floor he goes down, another dead person greets him, aiming to stop him in his tracks.
I love this book, from its quirky, funny chapters to its seriousness and conflict. I would recommend this book to anyone because it was incredibly fun to read and introduced a new authentic concept The Long Way Down is a thrilling fiction book by Jason Reynolds that keeps the reader on-edge at all times. The book is about a toxic community that believes in revenge when your family member or friend is killed. All of these views are challenged when Will, whose brother Shaun was recently killed, travels in an elevator down to kill his newly made enemy. Each floor he goes down, another dead person greets him, aiming to stop him in his tracks. The novel is a fast and furious, short but sweet book written in the style of slam poetry. The plot is fast-paced and unusual; it is an original concept I haven't yet seen before that hooks the reader right from the beginning.
I love this book, from its quirky, funny chapters to its seriousness and conflict. I would recommend this book to anyone because it was incredibly fun to read and introduced a new authentic concept.
