A Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds

by Ellen Peterson | Dec 07, 2019

National Book Award finalist and New York Times bestseller Jason Reynolds's fiercely stunning novel takes place in sixty potent seconds, the time it takes a kid to decide whether or not he's going to murder the guy who killed his brother.

This book, though it takes longer to read or listen to than the sixty seconds that pass in the story from beginning to end, is a short novel in verse that packs a powerful punch. A lot of heart and emotion are packed into this thought-provoking read. Available in many formats, the audio version is excellently read by the author and is highly recommended.
