Six floors, six ghosts, one minute.

After his brother’s death, Will knows the Rule: it’s up to him to get revenge for Shawn’s death. With his brother’s gun in hand and a target in mind (Will’s sure that's the guy who killed Shawn. Positive. Probably…), Will steps into the elevator and into the longest minute of his life. There are six floors to travel, six ghosts of gun violence to face, and one final decision to make.
This is a short but extremely powerful novel-in-verse. I usually find audiobooks hard to follow, but the rhythm of Reynolds’ poetry and narration is so captivating that I didn’t want to get out of my car until it was finished.
