Reviews

"A lively autobiography of the third woman and the first Latina on the U.S. Supreme Court." --Booklist, starred review

"The account of this exceptional trajectory, told with a storyteller's talent, is filled with a candor and honesty that make her story eminently accessible to young readers. " --Kirkus Review, starred review

"Adapted from Sotomayor's memoir, My Beloved World. Her reflections on her childhood are perceptive and poignant. She writes about her life in an immigrant family . . . and as a Puerto Rican American straddling two cultures. . . . a work infused with warmth and encouragement." --School Library Journal
