Synopsis of Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds:

When Will’s older brother Shawn is killed, he is swallowed by grief. In a community that follows The Rules (no crying, no snitching, and get revenge), what choice does he have? A novel in verse, this book takes place in mere minutes as Will contemplates his decision riding down an elevator.
