Waterstones Says

Reynolds' tightly coiled verse novel about juvenile gang violence is transformed into an electrifying and immediate graphic novel with kinetic artwork from Danica Novgorodoff.

Winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal 2022

The award-winning, bestselling verse novel is now a stunning graphic novel with illustrations by Danica Novgorodoff.

And 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
