A Form Students
If you have chosen to do your book talk about your mystery book, please sign up for one of the weeks below.
Your book talk should be no more than 3 minutes. You should start with a line to intrigue your friends. Then, give a short plot summary without giving any spoilers. Finally, leave your classmates hanging and give them a reason to read the book. Within this description, you should tell the title, author and where the book can be accessed.
Victor Flores has an impossible task ahead of him in Crossing the Wire by Will Hobbs. He must move north to the United States without any coyote money to help him, find a job, earn money and send it back home to his mother and younger sister. He must do it all without getting caught, freezing or starving to death or getting beaten up or robbed and he must do it all before his family runs out of money and starves to death themselves.This story is full of both anguish and hope and you won't regret checking it out of the Parrott Library.
