I thought that Crossing The Wire was a great book about a growing problem in our world today, illegal immigration. It kept my attention throughout the book with lots of unexpected turns. Mr. Hobbs clearly knows a lot about his topic, and it shows. With his vivid imagery, I could picture Victor, Rico, and every setting. All in all, this was an awesome book!
