The main characters in “Crossing the Line” were Fabiola and her sister Alexis.
The story was about Fabiola and her sister Alexis entering a new year in high school. Alexis was the type of girl who is very outgoing and made new friends in the popular crowd, while Fabiola was more of a girl who was very shy and didn’t get along with the popular kids at school. It was also about her cousin Salvador who was accused of beating up one of the restaurants employee’s, and how Fabiola and her sister put aside their differences in order to prove he is innocent.
I could relate to Fabiola, because she is the type of girl who I believe is very school centered just like me. We relate because I’m the type of person that would do something in order to please people. For example, when Fabiola told the customers they had vegan food in order for them to stay and eat but her dad didn’t want to make it.
I really enjoyed the book because I love reading Hispanic Culture books, since there are not that many that I know of. It was actually quite interesting reading a book that was about the Rio Grande Valley. I never thought it would ever pop up in a book.
I would definitely recommend this book to students and friends who enjoy reading books on Hispanic Culture, especially if it takes place in the Rio Grande Valley. The type of person who would read this kind of book would be a person who enjoys dramatic books and is open to reading any genre.
