    Audiobook..... Diane Guerrero's high pitch voice --along with her 'girlie-girlie' personality was a little grating for me.....( not the author's fault - it's her voice). It's just that her voice - over a long period just wasn't comforting. At times the way she talked - in slang -'co...

    I listened to the audio of In the Country We Love. I feel like I listened to two stories -- one I loved and the other one I found so so. I haven't watched Orange is the New Black so I don't know Diane Guerrero. But I read a really positive review of her memoir on GR which made me fe...

    I'm a big fan of Diane from Jane the Virgin and I also loved her in Orange is the New Black so when I randomly seen this book on Book Outlet, I had to grab a copy. I read it soon after receiving it in the mail, which is pretty rare for me to read a book right away. I thought this book ...

    Diane Guerrero story of immigrant parents touched me deeply. I am not that familiar with the actress, neither did I watch the show, Orange is the New Black interest me. I tried to get into it but was bored midway through the first episode, but I may go back to watch it. Back to the boo...

    Diane Guerrero shares her story of growing up as the child of undocumented immigrants as a way of advocating for better immigration laws. Her parents were deported when she was only 14; for some reason nobody came for her and so she spent the next years with different friends of her fa...

    As part of my Borders 2017 reading project, I wanted to read at least one book discussing undocumented people in America. Diane Guerrero is the only American-born member of her family, and when she was 14, her parents and brother were deported to Colombia. She arrived home to find an e...

    Heart-breaking and politically relevant memoir with an authentic voice. Diane Guerrero, actress in the popular TV shows Orange is the New Black and Jane the Virgin, tells the story of her parents' deportation and the devastating effect it had on all of their lives. It reveals the circu...

    This falls somewhere between three or four stars. Please note that the book has a co-author: Michelle Burford. Diane Guerrero is still rather young; she is born July 21, 1986. She is primarily an actress, not an author. It is to her credit that she saw the need for a co-author. She...

    Diane Guerrero shares her story of growing up as the child of undocumented immigrants as a way of advocating for better immigration laws. Her parents were deported when she was only 14; for some reason nobody came for her and so she spent the next years with different friends of her fa...

    One of the most important books to read this year, given our current political landscape. My heart ached for Diane as I read her devastating story of hardship and heartbreak. Here is an unflinching, honest account of the unfortunate consequences of chasing the American Dream, and how o...

    I figured there would be some hard knocks in her past, but Diane Guerrero?s life (and particularly her response to her situation) was way more than I expected. Diane?s parents came to the US on temporary visas and overstayed. Like many they were looking for a better life. Diane ...

    I commend the author so much for how completely vulnerable she was in telling this story, not only of her parents' deportation, but also of her struggles with depression, suicidal thoughts, and self-harm. It's sadly an all-too-common story, but one that she and millions of other childr...

    Heart-breaking and politically relevant memoir with an authentic voice. Diane Guerrero, actress in the popular TV shows Orange is the New Black and Jane the Virgin, tells the story of her parents' deportation and the devastating effect it had on all of their lives. It reveals the circu...

    I was unfamiliar with Diane Guerrero prior to watching Orange is the New Black and I haven?t seen anything else she?s appeared in. While I was curious to check this book out, I was surprised by how much I ended up enjoying it. In the Country We Love: My Family Divided is a memo...

    4 star story written in a 3 star style so... 3.5 stars. I think this would've been a significantly better experience on audiobook. ...

    This falls somewhere between three or four stars. Please note that the book has a co-author: Michelle Burford. Diane Guerrero is still rather young; she is born July 21, 1986. She is primarily an actress, not an author. It is to her credit that she saw the need for a co-author. She...

    You need not know anything about Guerrero or her career to read this book. It's not about how she made her break or what her path to Orange is the New Black and Jane the Virgin were. This is a book about growing up as a child of immigrants when your parents have been detained then d...

    I'm a big fan of Diane from Jane the Virgin and I also loved her in Orange is the New Black so when I randomly seen this book on Book Outlet, I had to grab a copy. I read it soon after receiving it in the mail, which is pretty rare for me to read a book right away. I thought this book ...

    Diane Guerrero story of immigrant parents touched me deeply. I am not that familiar with the actress, neither did I watch the show, Orange is the New Black interest me. I tried to get into it but was bored midway through the first episode, but I may go back to watch it. Back to the boo...

    One of the most important books to read this year, given our current political landscape. My heart ached for Diane as I read her devastating story of hardship and heartbreak. Here is an unflinching, honest account of the unfortunate consequences of chasing the American Dream, and how o...

    I figured there would be some hard knocks in her past, but Diane Guerrero?s life (and particularly her response to her situation) was way more than I expected. Diane?s parents came to the US on temporary visas and overstayed. Like many they were looking for a better life. Diane ...

    Please note that I gave this book 4.5 stars, but rounded up to 5 stars on Goodreads. I don't know how many people are familiar with Diane Guerrero, but I first saw her in Orange is the New Black. She's one of my favorite characters in the show and I honestly was surprised when I...

    Now more than ever, we need as many immigrant/deportation narratives as we can get. Guerrero?s story is heart-breaking and put a face and a name to the need for immigration reform. Her story will add to the conversation in a meaningful way. I do genuinely like Guerrero and I am famil...

    4.5 stars I'd known about Diane Guerrero's story for a while already but only very briefly. Hearing about her parents deportation and her struggles of being abandoned by the government at the age of 14 was quite a punch in the heart (I was crying at several parts in this book). But ...

    Though not a fan of celebrity autobiographies, my darling niece was so into this book I just had to take a look. She is a strong reader which is something that connects us. The good: Guerrero's unfortunate plight (growing up without her parents) is an eye-opening look at the life of...

    I listened to Diane Guerrero narrate this on audio, which I highly recommend. This is an important read, and it was brave of Guerrero, of Orange is the New Black fame, to share her family's story. A heartfelt exploration of her immigrant family's experience in the U.S., and her life af...
