Victor has been best friends with Rico When Rico tells him that he has enough money to pay for a coyote to help him cross into El Norte, Victor is unable to decide if he, too, should go along and look for work or try to feed his family with the pitiful annual corn harvest The decision is made for him the next day when he discovers that the corn prices have bottomed out and that there is no point in even planting this year Readers suffer with the 15 year old as he makes his painful decision to leave his mother and younger siblings and attempts the dangerous border crossing, jumping trains, fleeing thieves and border officials, and suffering from thirst and hunger His desperation and fear are completely believable as he faces near death situations and must decide whom to trust The author deftly weaves information concerning the local geography and customs into the plot The story is well paced, sustaining readers attention throughout Pair this novel with Ann Jaramillo s La Lnea Roaring

corn profitably in his Mexican village, 15 year old Victor, who has supported his family since his father s death, resolves to go to El Norte It s time for me to do what men from our village have to do Lacking the money to secure a guide, he ventures to a border town to wait his chance in the whirlpool of recent deportees, newcomers, and grizzled mojados wetbacks Successive attempts find him trekking through mountains and desert, fleeing la migra, and unwittingly becoming entangled with ruthless drug traffickers Hobbs effort to show a broad view of the border crossing experience, often by incorporating the hard luck tales of Victor s acquaintances, results in a story arc that occasionally feels artificial But the questions raised here are provocative and worthwhile Are Americans willing to pick the fruits and the vegetables to fill their grocery stores , and the propulsive adventure and survival elements will keep Hobbs core audience hooked Jennifer Mattson Copyright American
