    I won a copy via Goodreads giveaways in exchange for an honest review All my opinions are my own Confession Didn t know this was the edition for younger readers when I entered the giveaway. my bad haha.The good Her personal story is compelling, my heart broke for her and her family and what they had to endure I think she was brave for sharing her personal story, including all the warts and fears I love how passionate she is in her activism as well and I admire her for keeping on fighting.The bad so so indifferent The cover illustration drawing is nicely done, but a bit out of place Maybe it s better for the younger readers and all just think the creative team could have done better.The writing is good but sometimes felt a little awkward in this edition I m assuming some of those may have been re written ...

    It was really heartbreaking to read Diane Guerrero s story, though you could certainly tell it had been condensed down into this version friendly for a younger audience It s a story that shares the real experiences of many folks in our country, and I think the way it s told makes ...

    This book was so heart warming and beautiful I feel like some people take everything they have for granted, this book really does makes us think about things in our life we usually wouldn t think of Who is worried about their parents getting deported into a different country everyday, scared to wake up in the morning This book touched my heart, with tears, happiness and everything in between It is just amazing how many bumps Diane Guerrero went through to get where she is now At age 14, all alone with no one to tak...

    A good, honest, important story just not one that s very well written It s a shame that a book meant to be about giving someone a voice has so little well, voice Still worth it, though Recommended, but it s not going to stand out.

    ARC provided by publisher at ALA MidwinterActress Diane Guerrero s father and mother came to the United States from Colombia in the 1980s in order to make a better life for themselves and for their son They came on a ninety day tourist to visit a sister and did not leave While they struggled, they were able to hold down jobs and have places to live They tried to obtain citizenship, but were thwarted by the bureaucracy, as well as by a fraudulent lawyer who took a lot of money for little results Diane was born in the US and struggled a bit in school, but had a solid group of friends and enjoyed her life in Boston, eventually attending a performing arts school that got her started on her way to her eventual renown for television shows like Orange is the New Black and Jane the Virgin When she was 14, her parents were arrested and deported Luckily, she was able to stay with family friends, and even managed to go to a very nice private college, but her family s situation was never resolved to her satisfaction The book, which has a few black and white pictures of Guerrero, her family, and friends, shows the effect this had on her.Strengths This was a ...

    Because this story is about her life I don t feel entitled to give this a star rating However I do want to say that I loved this book So much of my childhood life I see reflected in this story My parents and myself along with my cousin came from Colombia in 1999 The fear that she lives with about the immigration status is something that I faced myself I found this book to give a young audience an idea of what it s like to be children of immigrants and I m thankful that Diane made the decision to write her story for a younger audience I do want to give trigger warnings for depression, thoughts of suicide with a semi plan happening as well as s...

    Really compelling story I think this has a lot of appeal for older teens, so I wish they hadn t gone with a cover that looks so middle grade I liked that the writing was chatty, but some lines felt very hello, fellow kids And the last chapter about getting involved could have b...

    I wanted to like this book I really wanted to like this book I did not like this book The story is relevant and important to tell Diane Guerrero tells the story of her parents and brother being deported, leaving her, the sole citizen in the family, to fend for herself at a young age in a system that has forgotten about her It s important for children whose families are affected by immigration laws to read and see that they re not alone It s important for children whose families are not affected to read to understand what their peers are going through It s important for adults to read to understand what our inaction can do and is doing to families across the country.That being said, the story telling leaves a lot to be desired It s hard to follow The narrative is mostly told in chronological order, but jumps back and forth between what s happening at home and at school and in Columbia so often that it s difficult to follow For example, The first couple pages of chapter seven talk about this seemingly sudden need to find a high school Then, in a rather jarring transition Back to Eric she s talking about her brother The slang is too muchIf you re writing a narrative that takes place mainly in the 90s and 00s and want to use slang from the era...
