"A Caitlyn Dlouhy book."
There are three rules in the neighborhood: Don't cry ; Don't snitch ; Get revenge. Will takes his dead brother Shawn's gun, and gets in the elevator on the 7th floor. As the elevator stops on each floor, someone connected to Shawn gets on. Someone already dead. Dead by teenage gun violence. And each has something to share with Will.

Summary / Annotation
A beautiful, thought-provoking book about gun violence and revenge submitted by TeacherN on July 27, 2019, 11:55am Jason Reynolds is one of the greatest authors of books for young people, and this book doesn't disappoint. A boy's brother has been shot, and as he rides down an elevator, a gun in the waistband of his pants, he is visited by the ghosts of other victims.
Great Book submitted by Sa05k on August 28, 2020, 4:53pm This a great book with a black youth lead. Even though the book mostly takes place in one location, it does not feel drawn out.
