I really loved this book and I really thought Diane was really brave bringing her story forth. This biography taught me so much about the U.S immigration system, how many displaced people their are in the United States, and how there is such a desperation for those who illegally have entered the country wanting to be American. It frightens me to think how common Diane's story is, and yet I love how hopeful she is for change and reformation to the laws that exist surrounding immigration.

Something else I loved was reading about her home-life, her connection to her Colombian heritage, and of course the anecdotes abut working on Orange is the New Black and Jane the Virgin. This book just filled me with so many emotions, many which I could relate to, while others, I admit I couldn't. This is a wonderfully engaging biography, and if you are a lover of Orange is the New Black or are curious about how families become divided in the U.S, then this book is easily worth checking out. Loved this one!
