The Other Side of the Streets by Maria Gibbs

The Other Side of the Streets

Children from the Streets #3

 
The Other Side of the StreetsRio, Brasil has always been split in half.

Marcos Martinez is from the half where homelessness and poverty is the norm. The son of a man who lived on the streets until he was adopted at the age of twelve, Marcos has made it his mission to defy the norm and make something of his life.

Gio Silvas knows only the lifestyle of the other side. A billionaire’s son, he’s a selfish, weak, narcissistic bully who thrives on hedonism, vibrant carnivals, and untold wealth—a lifestyle where the word “no” is not part of his vocabulary.

When Gio falls for Marcos’ twin sister Caro, a hard life lesson is heading his way. Will he see the error of his ways and change, or will his love for Caro push him and her family past the point of no return?

Familiar characters await, along with new, to both entrance and appall in this third installment of the Children from the Streets series. Come. It’s time. Carnival is upon us.

Are you ready to return to the streets?

My Review:

Another emotional story in the Children from the Streets series.

The boys from the first book, have grown up and now have children of their own. Marcos and Caro are one set of Pedro and Alea Martinez’ twin children, and in this book, we follow their heartbreaking and tragic story, as their father’s time on the streets as a child continues to affect the next generation.

I am loving this series, inspired by real-life events, it’s an informative and very emotional read.

I would advise you to read the first two books, A Boy from the Streets and Sins of the Father, before opening this one.

 
Meet The Author:

Maria GibbsI started reading and writing from an early age, it has always been my passion and my escape. There are so many worlds out there to discover and to create. I write in many genres, my mind is alive with thoughts and ideas so I allow them free release on paper. If I were to sum up what the common denominator is between my books, I would have to say they tug at the heartstrings – in the main. My reader’s tell me I’ve reduced them to tears. Inspiration comes in many forms and I grab it with greedy hands. I am predominantly a pantser, planning only when needed.

I work full-time but my dream is to be able to make a living from writing and be able to give my undivided time to releasing all the books that are floating around in my over-active brain.

When I’m not writing, I like reading, crafting, running, listening to music or riding my motorbike.
