How It Went Down

A Coretta Scott King Honor Book

"The layered voices tell a story both simple and complicated, heartbreaking and maddening." --The Chicago Tribune

"In How It Went Down, Kekla Magoon deftly renders us witnesses to an all-too-common news flash in uncommon, unflinching prose. Gripping to the end." --Rita Williams-Garcia Newbery Honor winner, National Book Award finalist, and Coretta Scott King Award winner

"A hard-hitting look at the ripple effects of one act of violence on an entire community. How It Went Down is engrossing and real--it's the right book at the right time." --Coe Booth, LA Times Book Prize winner

"Magoon masterfully captures the cycle of urban violence and the raw emotions of the young people who can't escape its impact." --Publishers Weekly, starred review
