Why i chOse we beat the street
I chose this book because it seemed more interesting than all the others. This is because I have heard of this book before but I haven't read it. I find it interesting that these three guys made an agreement to be doctors and to not get involved with violence and other bad things, and actually accomplished it. It's honestly inspiring that even if people live in a bad place filled with drugs/violence, they can prevail and be successful.
Where the book takes place ^^
We Beat the Street is a true story about three long time friends named Rameck, Sampson, and George. They were all born in 1973 in New Jersey, however did not meet up until high school. The book shares all of their stories that led up to how they are today. They all live around drugs and all sorts of crime, but this is normal to them. The book explains the hardships they face throughout their lives. The three friends made a friendship pact to stay friends and to stay out of trouble. They followed that pact no matter what. Today, all three of them are doctors.
