Product description

A searing novel in verse, taking poetry to dark new places. Sixty seconds of action. A book that’ll stick in your head for a lifetime. Will is in a gang. He’s in a lift. He’s got a gun. He’s ready to shoot it. His brother’s been murdered. Will knows the next steps. Don’t cry. Don’t snitch. Get revenge. So he gets in the lift with Shawn’s gun, ready to follow The Rules. But when the lift door opens, Buck walks in: Will’s dead friend. Then in comes Dani, who was shot years before that. Suddenly, all the dead folk from Will’s past are piling into the lift. And they want a word with him…
