Wonderful story of three lifelong friends who make a pact that brings out the best in themselves and one another. A great story for young people and a powerful illustration of how important it is to choose the right friends.

Go for that Dream!

by innertemple on May 22, 2008

I picked up this book after my wife and I started a group reading with my son of the book; ?We Beat the Streets.? ?We Beat the Streets? book was written by the same authors but geared toward a younger crowd (suggested ages 9 to 15y/o). The pact was a great book as a source of inspiration. Being an African American male near the same age range, I was able to relate to at least one aspect of each of the three guys. At points where Rameck had a chip on his shoulder and struggle to put the anger behind him I related to that anger when confronted by unfair situations and judgmental people throughout college. Times when set backs occurred related to bad choices, an ill family member, or failing to pass a critical exam on the first try reminded me how as a young black male you feel like you?re on the edge of falling of track at any given moment. Regardless of race and sex when you spear-headed the family into a new level of educational/professional success you will feel the weight of a lot of dreams and hopes placed on your shoulders daily. Often as a young man I felt times where I just didn?t want to deal with that kind of pressure. This story reminded me that it is important to stay focused and move through the rough periods in order to be in a position to help friends and loved ones. By example let them know that they can achieve there goals/dreams. Two key factors in this story will continue to give me the courage to move forward. Never forget the 3 D?s; Discipline, Determination, and Dedication. Always remember that choosing the right friends may mean the difference between success and failure in my life?s goals. Friends are crucial when faced with situations in life that are difficult. I am proud to say that my wife is my best friend with an ear to listen. As I pursue my second master?s degree my thoughts turn to adding to my list of goals a doctorate. Thank you Doctors Davis, Jenkins, and Hunt for this wonderful gift of brotherly love! I give this book a, 5 out of 5 stars. If you?re a Dad it?s a must read with your son or daughter. All they see is the man you are now; let them know that God, Faith, and loving relationships got you where you are today!!

This is a wonderful inspirational easy read. I would especially recommend this book for encouragement for young black men. The story shows a light at the end of the tunnel that you don't see often in urban America.
