This book is important. This story is about the deportation of parents, this is the story of a child who grew into a woman who dealt with her parents being taken while she was at school. This is an American story, Guerrero hopes to humanize immigration realities and help end the normalization of hate, seperation and barriers.
I was a fan of ORANGE but I didn't really take notice of Guerrero until I saw her on the Chelsea Show...
Immigration is a topic that a lot of people take an inhumane approach to, people take the child and family factors out of the equation in order to maintain an 'what's our's is our's' mentality. I think that stories like this, honesty and understanding will undoubtly be built upon. Please check this book out, gift it to a friend, read, listen and educate yourself about the plights of people who dream of being a citizens in 'The Country We Love,' I believe that together with empathy and intelligence we can find a pathway to get them there.
