60 seconds in an elevator have never felt so tense as Will must decide whether or not to avenge his brother's murder. Along the way down he encounters ghosts from his past. Written in sparse prose, you'll be hooked from the first page.
Suggested by Danielle. Jason Reynolds tackles the implications of neighborhood violence in verse. Think A Christmas Carol meets Boys in the Hood. Inspired by the teens he meets in juvenile detention centers and an experience from his own life.
