The book Street Life is a book about Victor Rios, a Mexican kid who grew up in poverty in Oakland and joining gang life and doing the criminal activity to changing his life around and became a different person who got his doctoral degree. My favorite part of the book is when he changed his life around and went to college so he can provide and be a better role model to his family. Yes, I would recommend this book to anybody who is feeling bad about themselves and wants to make a change or to somebody who is doing badly in school and doesn’t have any hope that it’s too late to be successful.
