Synopsis

SHORTLISTED for the CILIP Carnegie Medal, WINNER of the UKLA



'A masterpiece from beginning to end.' Angie Thomas, author of The Hate U Give



AND THEN THERE WERE SHOTS

Everybody

ran,

ducked,

hid, tucked

themselves tight.



Pressed our lips to the

pavement and prayed

the boom, followed by

the buzz of a bullet,

didn't meet us.



After Will's brother is shot in a gang crime, he knows the next steps. Don't cry. Don't snitch. Get revenge. So he gets in the lift with Shawn's gun, determined to follow The Rules. Only when the lift door opens, Buck walks in, Will's friend who died years ago. And Dani, who was shot years before that. As more people from his past arrive, Will has to ask himself if he really knows what he's doing.



This haunting, lyrical, powerful verse novel will blow you away.



'A heartrending and convincing blank verse narrative.' Sunday Times, BOOKS OF THE YEAR



'Astonishing.' Kirkus Reviews



'A tour de force.' Publishers Weekly

Jason Reynolds is a critically acclaimed American writer and poet and winner of the Kirkus Prize for Young Readers. From Jason: "Here's what I know: I know there are a lot - A LOT - of young people who hate reading. I know that many of these book haters are boys. I know that many of these book-hating boys, don't actually hate books, they hate boredom. So here's what I plan to do: NOT WRITE BORING BOOKS. " This is the first of his books to be published in the UK. jasonwritesbooks.com @jasonreynolds83 Chris Priestley lives, writes, draws and paints in Cambridge. He has lived in England, Wales and Gibraltar. He left home in 1976 to go to art college in Manchester. He was there for four years before heading off to London to seek his fortune as an illustrator.
