The cover of Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds

Long Way Down is one of those books that feels really special - and that you want to tell everyone to read right away!

The verse novel by Jason Reynolds (and illustrated by Chris Priestley) tells the story of Will, a 15-year-old determined to avenge his brother Shawn, who has just been shot in a gang crime. Will takes Shawn's gun and steps into the elevator ready to do just that... but at each floor, someone from Will's past appears to make him question what he's doing.

Moving, haunting and powerful, Long Way Down will stay with you for a long time after you've finished it (and its brilliant verse style means it appeals to both bookworms and reluctant readers alike).

Now, we're thrilled to have five copies of the book to give away - each signed by Jason himself!

To be in with the chance of winning one, just answer the question below and leave your details before the closing date of 11pm on Tuesday, 9 October. Good luck!
