Hi I'm William Holloman, but you can call me Will!
I'm Will's mom!
What's up? I'm Will's big brother Shawn!
I am Carson Riggs.
A Long Way Down takes place in an 8 story apartment building where the main character lives and tells the story of his brother.
Rules Rule 1 Rule 2 Rule 3 Rule 4
Is this my brother's gun!?!?!?
The main character is William Holloman, a 15 year old boy. Will's brother Shawn, an 18 year old boy, was shot on the streets due to gang violence. Carlson Riggs, a rival gang member, murdered Will's brother Shawn.
What are you doing Will?
Will's brother, Shawn, was shot 2 times on the way to buy soap from the store for his mom. He was shot by a rival gang member named Carlson Riggs.
Will finds a gun in his brother's bedroom and then decides to find his brother's killer, Carlson Riggs, and kill him. This is when the rules are also introduced.
The main conflict was when Will was in the elevator and on his way down the 8 floors. He was visited by all the people he loved and who had previously died. On each floor, a new ghost visited Will.
What really happened in the elevator and what happened when Will got to the 1st floor?
