The book I read was Crossing The Wire by Will Hobbs. This book is about a boy named Victor Who's best friend since childhood, Rico goes off to America illegally. Later on Victor finds himself in the same situation to help out his family. I personally loved this book because it was unique and there is no book made like this one. Another reason I liked this book is because is because it kept getting interesting it didn't get boring in any part of the book. This book is realistic fiction because talked about a topic not many people care for or even think about even though this is a problem. Realistic Fiction means that this is possible to happen and this book talks about real struggles some families have not only people in Mexico but everywhere. I feel that most kids from 5th grade to high school should read this book. I feel like most kids would like this book but some might not understand it.
