But with no "coyote money" to pay the smugglers who sneak illegal workers across the border, Victor must struggle to survive as he jumps trains, stows away on trucks, and hikes grueling miles through the Arizona desert.

Reviews of Crossing the Wire

Wonderful book!!!

by bookworm226 on Mar 18, 2007

I really enjoyed this book when I read it. I have read many of Will Hobb's books but this one is one of his best. I have always had mixed feelings about the imigration issue between the US and Mexico and this book really made me think about the real issue: people. This is a very thought-provoking and touching story about a boy who risks all to save his family from starving. I would highly recommend it to everyone!
