Waterstones Says

A breath-taking examination of loyalty, guilt and the self-destructive urge for retribution, Long Way Down is a verse novel set in real time and a single location that packs one hell of a punch. Long dead characters from Will’s past emerge to question his motives in seeking vengeance for his brother’s shooting.

Shortlisted for the CILIP Carnegie Medal 2019

Ane 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.

“An epiphany of life’s choices told through mere seconds.”

As a poetry book, Long Way Down didn’t take too long for me to read, but the hard hitting tone of the story still hit me like a ton of bricks. You know when a book has you when the ending leaves you with your mouth... More
