This is Diane Guerrero's autobiography focusing on her experience with her family being deported when she was only 14 years old.
Guerrero went though one of the worst events that many people living in this country fear. Her family was taken from her and she didn't know what to do. She talks about her struggles moving from one friend's house to another and how this has effected the rest of her life.
I really love that Guerrero is using her platform to talk about such a sensitive subject. Immigration is always a polarizing topic but now that she put a face with the struggle. She talks about how the government failed her. No one from child services contacted her, she had to be self efficient at such a young age.
I thought this was an excellent read and I wish it was a bit longer.
I give this book a B+
I devour worlds with each new book. I am making up for lost time as a late bloomer of the reading world.
