Kia Peterson English 9 10/4/11 The Pact- Required Reading Yes, I think that The Pact should be a required reading. If The Pact was required a reading I think that it could help teenage students with their struggles in their life. In The Pact it is just basically showing how George, Rameck, and Sam looked through all of their problems and full field their dreams. Most teenagers these days get caught up in drugs and other things that they shouldn’t get caught up in. Most of it would come from peer pressure. Sometimes people would do things that they know they wouldn’t normally do just to get attention. Another reason why The Pact should be a required reading is because just reading the book could help people think positive. It could just show them that know matter what you are going through in you life you should never give up on you dream. If The Pact was a required reading then it would teach a lot of students not to give up on what they want to do with their life. Sam went to medical and fell in love with a girl. He had a hard time trusting her. He kept hearing rumors that she was cheating on him. When he called her dorm room to make sure she was there she wouldn’t answer. When he saw her the next day he would ask her about if and she would always try to change the subject. A couple days later she left him. She was in a relationship with another boy from another collage. She was also pregnant by the boy that she was secretly seeing. Sam, Rameck, and George made a pact to graduate collage and go to medical school. Sam could not follow through with the pact; he left medical school and reported back to his hometown; Newark. When he got home he could tell that something seemed different about his sister. Her hair was more smother looking. He knew that when your hair looks more smother then you most likely have aids. Every time Sam would ask her about it she would say that she hasn’t been with nobody and that she was fine. A couple days later she admitted to Sam that she had aids. Rameck was on and off jobs. He had a studying habit. He would all ways want to study, he and George studied different. When it would be starting to get late George would just want to quit studying, Rameck would not stop studying until he felt like he knew everything. Rameck wanted to set good examples on the kids that grew up like he did. George went to medical school and realized that he wanted to be a rapper. He and Sam started recording songs. They meet Biggie Smalls, Puff Daddy, Wyclef Sean, and another rapper they felt that could help them with their music. Sam, Rameck, and George all had distractions. Sam had a problem gambling. Rameck skipped classes, he started getting into fights, and he started stealing stuff. George was trying to be this bad boy. I think that The Pact is a very good book. It encourages teenagers to not give up on their dream no matter what their background is. Some kids today have a problem saying no to certain things because they just want to fit in with the other kids in school. Their peers try to pressure them to doing things that they don’t want to do and the end up doing it. I would recommend this book to other people because it could really help you out in your life. People think that just because they may not have a good background that they cant follow their dreams. There is always a solution to your problems.
