Description

"We are going to rock the world." --Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Born in the Bronx and raised in the suburbs of Westchester County, New York, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez witnessed firsthand how a person's zip code can shape their destiny. That early exposure to income inequality fueled a passion for change that, in turn, led her to take on--and defeat--a ten-term incumbent to become the youngest woman ever elected to Congress. Now a target for the right, she is an inspiration to millions of millennial voters, women of color, and progressives.

A celebratory biography that tells the blow-by-blow account of AOC's extraordinary rise from bartender to political rock star, AOC is a compelling look at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: who she is, what she stands for, and the movement that she's energized.
