Book Synopsis

Growing up on the rough streets of Newark, New Jersey, Rameck, George,and Sampson could easily have followed their childhood friends into drug dealing, gangs, and prison.  But when a presentation at their school made the three boys aware of the opportunities available to them in the medical and dental professions, they made a pact among themselves that they would become doctors.  It took a lot of determination—and a lot of support from one another—but despite all the hardships along the way, the three succeeded.  Retold with the help of an award-winning author, this younger adaptation of the adult hit novel The Pact is a hard-hitting, powerful, and inspirational book that will speak to young readers everywhere.

    This book totally deserves the 5 stars I gave it! This is about three boys who grew up on the rough streets in Newark, New Jersey where guns, drugs, and alcohol are just everyday things. But they made a pack to overcome their tough circumstances and all go to medical school together, no matter how long and hard the journey may be - and two become doctors and the other becomes a dentist! They were successful only because they had each other, and this book truly shares the message that, "If you can dream it, you can do it!" I HIGHLY recommend this book, because it has truly inspired me to try to do something great with my life, and I know that many others think the exact same too. Read this one of a kind book, and your life will be changed forever for a mere $11.99.
