There is not much that I can add other's reviews of this memoir by Diane Guerrero. It was fascinating to see how Diane survived being left basically orphaned when the US Government deported her parents back to Colombia. At 14 years old, she was left in the country of her birth (USA) with no parents, and no one in the government even seemed to know or care that she was left alone.

In the past, I had taken a rather unsympathetic stance on undocumented aliens. This book has totally changed how I feel about our immigration system. I have no idea how to fix this messed up system, but something needs to change in order to protect our citizens from things like this happening to them in the future.
