In the Country We Love: My Family Divided - Diane Guerrero

Staff Pick

Her name might sound familiar, she stars in Orange is the New Black and Jane the Virgin. The daughter of undocumented immigrants, her parents worked menial jobs to give their daughter a better life. They scraped together thousands of dollars to pay a lawyer to become citizens but were deported when Guerro was 14. Suddenly orphaned, Guerrero kept her personal ordeal secret and threw herself into her acting at Boston Arts Academy. Her heart wrenching journey to successful actress included binge drinking, cutting, hospitalizations, depression and a near suicide attempt. Guerrero's honesty and her resilience to keep acting even when she wanted to give up (one agent said she wasn't pretty enough) makes this a powerful memoir.
