The book isnt all that great and i was expecting more at the end. And after all Arizona has gone through to help stop the flow of illegal immigration, someone just comes out and writes this book. I know schools are encouraging students to read this because it was a summer homework assignment for my school. I am really against illegals coming to America from anywhere, and this book is trying to get people to be kind to immagrants. There is a system in the U.S. where people from other countries can get their green card and citezenship if they are qualified. In my opinion, it would be easier to make yourself educated and then come to America and become a citizen and have a brighter futer paved for you. This nonsense of sneaking accross the boarder only puts you in danger and makes others unhappy. I think this book told a nice adventure story, but I dislike the point of the story. Illegal aliens should have to work to get here. Some Americans may not be up to the challenge of the hard work, but there are a lot of hard working people in this country. I dont have anything against hispanics, but I do not like what this story implies, and I do not think little kids should be having this idea planted in there minds that other people should be able to just waltz into our country. If you got home and an uninvited stranger was sitting on your couch, you would be upset, right? America is our house and these illegals are the strangers on our couches. Why are we encouraging them to break into our house hold? Take the information I have given you and do with it what you will.

    Adrian Salome Crossing the wire by Willl Hobbs

    Well this book is very interesting it is about fifteen year old kid Victor Flores that he wanted to cross the Mexican and United States border. Because his family didnt have enough money for his house. So his friend Rico went first because he had a brothere there in the United States that sended him money so he could go over to the United States with coyotes which were guys who smuggled you in the frontier. So he went. <the thing was thar Victor Flores did not have coyote money so he hadto go by himself which was a very dificcult thing to do because he was scared, afraid, and have never gone to the United States and had nowhere to go. So he went and he had to go threw a lot of challenges like about to die of hunger, thrist, and because he was going to get killed by some guys because mhe did not pay them. So later on he found himself with Rico. Then thye went together to the United States and after they croosed the frontier they found out that Rico´s brother´s job was stealing cars, and selling them. Then Rico and Victor found jobs. Then Rico decided to go back to Mexico.This book was wriiten by Will Hobbs.
