Long Way Down - Jason Reynolds

I'm Alessandra! Genres that I enjoy are fiction, mysteries, and thrillers. Right now, I am currently reading Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds. Recently, I have read another book by Jason Reynolds called When I Was the Greatest and I reread Divergent by Veronica Roth. I chose my current book because I really enjoyed some of Reynolds' other books and I have heard so many great things about him.


Currently, I am reading Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds. This book is about a 15 year old boy named Will whose brother was murdered. Will's town has three main rules; no crying, no snitching, and always get revenge. Something that is unique about this book is that it is written in verse. Another unique quality about this book is that it all takes place over the course of one minute. A connection that I made in this book is with the things that are happening in society today that include the topic of guns. Although it is sad, there was definitely a connection that I could make between the novel and our world today. I predict that Will is going to find the person who killed his brother because he desperately wants revenge. He is not going to let the murderer get away with what he did. Will demands that his brother gets the justice that he deserves.
