  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2018 June #1
    In her "Call to Action" at the end of My Family Divided, Guerrero states that 7 percent of school-age children in the U.S. have at least one undocumented parent, a staggering number. When she lost her parents to deportation, she felt utterly alone. As an adult, she knows that isn't the case, and this young readers' adaptation of her adult memoir, In the Country We Love (2016), her moving account—which addresses her heartbreak, her struggles after losing her parents and being forgotten by the local government, her depression, and her resolve to succeed—should help young readers in similar situations find the reassurance she missed out on. Though her story is occasionally difficult to bear, Guerrero and Moroz's conversational tone makes it digestible, and the many photographs throughout lighten things up between chapters. As an activist, Guerrero also gives readers a path to action themselves, whether they're in her shoes or simply want to help, writing, "I've chosen to view my ordeal as an opportunity to be a voice for millions." Truly a book of our generation. Grades 3-6. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
