Publisher Description:

Diane Guerrero, the star of Orange is the New Black and Jane the Virgin, presents her personal story in this middle-grade memoir about her parents' deportation and the nightmarish struggles of undocumented immigrants and their American children.

Before landing a spot on the megahit Netflix show Orange is the New Black; before wow-ing audiences as Lina on Jane the Virgin; and before her incredible activism and work on immigration reform, Diane Guerrero was a young girl living in Boston. One day, while Guerrero was at school, her undocumented immigrant parents were taken from their home, detained, and deported. Guerrero's life, which had been full of the support of a loving family, was turned upside down.

Reflective of the experiences of millions of undocumented immigrant families in the United States, Guerrero's story in My Family Divided, written with Erica Moroz, is at once heartbreaking and hopeful.

Praise for My Family Divided:

This memoir's greatest strength is that it captures how life moves on even after a great loss. . .To read this book is to understand. . .how a child's resilience can be as heartbreaking as it is inspirational. --The New York Times Book 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
