Description

In this inspirational and unflinchingly honest memoir, acclaimed author Reyna Grande describes her childhood torn between the United States and Mexico, and shines a light on the experiences, fears, and hopes of those who choose to make the harrowing journey across the border.

Reyna Grande vividly brings to life her tumultuous early years in this “compelling...unvarnished, resonant” (BookPage) story of a childhood spent torn between two parents and two countries. As her parents make the dangerous trek across the Mexican border to “El Otro Lado” (The Other Side) in pursuit of the American dream, Reyna and her siblings are forced into the already overburdened household of their stern grandmother. When their mother at last returns, Reyna prepares for her own journey to “El Otro Lado” to live with the man who has haunted her imagination for years, her long-absent father.

Funny, heartbreaking, and lyrical, The Distance Between Us poignantly captures the confusion and contradictions of childhood, reminding us that the joys and sorrows we experience are imprinted on the heart forever, calling out to us of those places we first called home.

Also available in Spanish as La distancia entre nosotros.

opened my eyes to the beauty of our stories

absolutely incredible. had my eyes welling up between grocery store aisles and made my heart swell on my commutes to work. the passage Reyna writes about her world-changing introduction to Latin literature encapsulated everything I felt about this book. I had never had someone tell the same stories on paper that I lived and heard about in my real life. this book has sorrow, change, fear, love, solidarity and tells of an unbreakable bond between siblings as they maneuver life with absent parents, then life in a completely new world together. beautiful and heart wrenching.

Disappointed! Albeit Reality.

Phenomenal writing. I spent half of my childhood in Mexico so I am aware of the level of poverty and the stories were a reflection of life as it was. However, I was not ready for worms, lice, tacos with s--- in them, half killed chickens with broken necks and lots of beatings. It was the reality. Okay. I get it. Just not for me. I cant continue and now I wait for another credit. No I cannot recommend this memoir.

Incredible- this will change your perspective

Never have i really considered what life for children of immigrants is like when they are left behind. This memoir tells the story of so many of these "orphan" children- and the strain that immigration and separation from their parents puts on them. Heartbreaking, hopeful, and written with incredible detail, this story will truly change you.

A powerful stirring book

Facebook has uncomfortable subject matter, however, it is eye-opening to those who have never been an immigrant. It was a powerful and moving book. I am so glad that I listened to it.

tear jerker. close to home. healing. healing tears

I'm not even half way done and I decided to write a review. I have a wonderful beautiful Mexican mother. None the less my dad's, and other family members alcoholism has caused me to experience a lot of neglect and trauma. This book has mended my heart in bits a peices. It has persuaded me to feel feelings I had not dared to feel or treat before. It broke my wall 🧱😭 and the healing journey began. I now see my Mexican broken family as sacred. I loved chapter 10. it made me realize even in broken fuks up situation we are blessed in many ways than not. God bless my family. My mom, especially my aunt Mago, who served as my real mom in critical situations.

Wonderful book

I enjoyed every minute of this book. It was engaging and easy to listen to, while at the same time hard to believe this difficult childhood was someone’s reality.

Beautiful Story, couldn’t put it down

I listened to this book in a few days. I was caught between pacing myself to make it last and just binging it, I went with the later. Grande has such a beautiful and descriptive way with words. I highly recommend this book to those that want more insight of who the Dreamers are and the situation they are escaping from.

Absolutely amazing!

I couldn’t stop listening to this memoir. It reminded me of the hardships so many people are still facing to this day. It helped me remember to be grateful for my parents and the journey they paved for me. What an amazing story!
