Summary
The first Hispanic American on the U.S. Supreme Court shares the story of her life before becoming a judge, describing her youth in a Bronx housing project, the ambition that fueled her ivy league education, and the individuals who helped shape her career
Summary
Appointed to the Supreme Court in 2009, Sonia Sotomayor became the first Latina to achieve this high judicial office. My Beloved World offers a moving portrait of her gritty South Bronx neighborhood and her extended Puerto Rican family, as well as details of the many challenges she has faced during her formative years and early career. This open, eloquent memoir describes how she overcame poverty, her father's early death, and even the onset of her own early health issues to excel in school, attend Princeton and Yale Law School -- while still remaining true to her heritage. - Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
