The book ‘Street Life’ written by Dr. Victor Rios, is about Victor and the decisions he made throughout his life and how he changed his life of being a delinquent to graduate college with a PhD. He is now living a better life because he changed his life for the better. My favorite part of the book is when he changed his life around from someone who was doing drugs, disobeying and part of a gang to someone who graduated and got accepted into and wrote his very own book. I suggest people to read this book because it has very interesting events and it’s fun to read. It also shows you that even the tiniest of decisions can impact your life a lot. The people that I suggest to read it is people who are thinking of stop going to school and think of doing things that will get you in trouble.
