This is what first came to mind when tons of blogposts and youtube videos with this tag started popping up in my feed.

No. 2: Snitching … Don’t. No matter what.
No. 3: Revenge … Do. No matter what.

When 15 year old Will discovers a gun that belonged to his deceased brother. He decides to carry out rule number 3, cause he knows who he’s after. But when Will gets into the elevator on the 7th floor, a 60 second elevator ride seems to take an eternity. The elevator stops on every floor and on each floor somebody that is familiar to Will gets in. The weird thing about all of this is … that everybody that gets in is supposed to be death.

Welcome to Jason Reynolds heart wrenching tale which is a mix of Boyz in tha Hood meets A Christmas Carol.
