Long Way Down

November 2017

An ode to Put the Damn Guns Down, this is National Book Award finalist and New York Times bestseller Jason Reynolds’ fiercely stunning novel that takes place in 60 potent seconds --- the time it takes a kid to decide whether or not he’s going to murder the guy who killed his brother. Told in short, fierce staccato narrative verse, LONG WAY DOWN is a fast and furious, dazzlingly brilliant look at teenage gun violence, as could only be told by Jason Reynolds.
