Description

"A moving coming-of-age memoir." --School Library Journal, starred review

"Eminently accessible . . . . This is a timely reminder that none of us lives in a vacuum and that deportation affects more than just the deportee." --Kirkus Reviews

"Truly a book of our generation." --Booklist

In the Country We Love

One of Chicago Public Library and BookRiot's Best Books of 2016

"Guerrero transforms a truly terrible situation into something meaningful, using her story and her role as an Ambassador for Citizenship and Naturalization by the White House to try to help other immigrant families left in this terrible position." --Publishers Weekly

"Lovingly detailed in colloquial and well-paced prose . . . The author's candor in chronicling the lowest moments of her life reads like an urgent confessional. . . The author's greatest strength lies in her ability to advocate for undocumented immigrants and others affected by immigration status." --Kirkus Reviews

"Offering readers the story she needed to hear as a child, Guerrero shines a light on this country's flawed immigration system, eloquently calling for reform without diminishing her appreciation for the opportunities US citizenship has afforded her. A timely and enlightening read." --Booklist

"In the Country We Love is the poignant, candid, and often shocking account of the challenges Guerrero faced as a citizen child of undocumented parents" --Kirkus Reviews [special cover feature]

"I could not recommend this book enough, especially if you liked The Book of Unknown Americans." --Book Riot [best books of April 2016]

"In the Country We Love is a necessary story for our times...It is a heartrending memoir that humanizes the story of America's immigration policies." --San Antonio News-Express

"Advocating on behalf of the undocumented immigrants in our country, Guerrero's memoir is a well-written tell-all of a woman who traveled a difficult path to stardom." --ReadItForward.com
