    " great story of three kids from Newark who become doctors and a dentist - very uplifting and an easy read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben | 2/10/2014

    " This book really touched me and inspired me. This book gave me ideas on things I can do to help kids in low-income neighborhoods. What made this book even stronger was that it was non-fiction. That these three students actually went through these experiences and overcame the influences. I loved this book! I recommend this book to people who enjoy urban, non-fiction books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jackie | 2/10/2014

    " Great story for young adults. Overcoming obstacles to succeed in life is the message conveyed. Every middle school student should read this true story! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Egzon Hasanaj | 2/3/2014

    " The book "The Pact" by author, Sampson Davis was a good book. One reason why Is because the book had a lot of detail and it was very motivational, because It showed you that you could become whatever you want even it you have huge obstacles in your life, like your neighborhood, your family etc. But the reason why I don't think this was a amazing book, or a 5-star book is because sure it was motivational and descriptive but in some parts it got boring and very dull, and that happens in every book but this book's boringness level just outweighed the action or the sadness level. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jalen S. | 2/2/2014

    " I thought that the book was going to be boring and dumb, but after i read it a little more I understood the whole plot of the story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 MariLee | 1/25/2014

    " This book is about 3 black guys from a rough neighborhood in New Jersey who make a pact in high school to all go to college and medical/dental school and become doctors. Each chapter alternates between each of the three friends, George, Sam, and Rameck. While I thought the idea was good, that these three friends wanted to break out of their unfortunate circumstances and become successful, contributing members of society, I didn't like the overtones of "let's blame the system," "white people don't help black people," etc. There was a good deal of focus on the fact that because these guys didn't have stable homes, good fathers, etc., that they were doomed to become drug-dealers, thugs, etc. While the circumstances they grew up in were sad and unfortunate, it seemed like they were trying to always blame someone else for why it was so hard for them to overcome their past. Although, I do have to give these three major kudos for sticking it out and achieving their goals. It is easier to deal drugs and make a lot of money than to go to college and medical school. Anyway, I'd probably give it a 2.5, 2.8. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clayton | 1/24/2014

    " The book was very lucid. It was not as intricate as I would have liked but after reading it, I would say that this book is high school level and a very good motivator for young men of color who live in abject poverty or environments. Some of the things that bothered me in the book was the kind of blind eye to the structural racism in these kids lives and how they "still made it even when the system was built against them" turned me off sometimes. Addressing the issue of going back to the neighborhood hence one came is good and a message that must be propagated, but turning a blind eye to racism and just continuing to take the heat was something I did not like very much. Overall, a good book for youth, easy read, very clear not an overzealous vocabulary, and it touches home for me as an urban youth of color. "

    " It looks like an inspiring book, I just started it:) "

    " I liked this book, because it was real and it was honest. It made me think about how easy I have it and how important education is. Really, it just made me humble. These guys have an amazing story to tell and I think everybody should get the change to read it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justin | 12/25/2013

    " Such an awesome and inspirational story. These guys are truly admirable. They came from very little and made some much of themselves. The Pact shows the reader how much determination and a strong friendship can really help you go far in life. A great read for young adults, especially. "
