Avatar for Brookdale Library Staff Brookdale Library Staff said:
Sotomayor relates the unvarnished story of her growing up in the Bronx in the 60's & 70s. Raised in a loving but sometimes dysfunctional extended family by a motivated but emotionally injured mother, Sotomayor shares the roots that gave her the drive and self-belief to one day become the first Latina on the Supreme Court of the United States. Reads like a warm hearted novel,with plenty of gritty, funny and culturally on target family anecdotes - An excellent choice that will inspire readers of all backgrounds to never give up! - Rachel S.

In this entertaining well written autobiography filled with humor and love Sotomayor the first Hispanic appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court candidly recalls a tumultuous childhood growing up in a Bronx housing project during which time she was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes. Her mother’s strong belief in education spurred her to thrive in school and her determination saw her through catholic school, Princeton and Yale Law School. Sotomayor is a natural storyteller leaving the reader to feel as though she is sitting by your side telling you her life’s story.
