The powerhouse that is Jason Reynolds is already immensely powerful and impactful in his written words alone. But this graphic novel adaptation of Jason’s “Long Way Down” is powerful in a spectacular new way with the watercolor artwork of Danica Novgorodoff. This story joins us with Will, as his brother is killed before him, and Will sets out to do what he has to do, according to The Rules—take the life of the one who killed his brother. The bulk of the story takes place over 60-seconds—60 life-changing seconds—as Will rides an elevator down to see this man who killed his brother, and the very cycle of violence permeating his life unfolds before him… “Long Way Down” is so incredibly worth taking time to sit with, to be with. This story is important, this story is power and knowledge, this story is a breath of hope and a voice of love. Take a deep breath and let this book wash over you.
