We beat the street

how a friendship pact led to success
Drs Sampson Davis George Jenkins and Rameck Hunt ; with Sharon M Draper
Book - 2006

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.
