Click for availability and more information My Beloved World, by Sonia Sotomayor
 
Sonia Sotomayor is not only the first Hispanic Supreme Court judge, the third woman appointed to the Supreme Court, but also the author of the totally engaging and charming autobiography My Beloved World. As she writes in the preface to her book, "some readers may find comfort, perhaps even inspiration, from a close examination of how an ordinary person, with strengths and weaknesses like anyone else, has managed an extraordinary journey." Her writing style is clear, lovingly descriptive and totally absorbing as she recounts her growing up in a Puerto Rican family in New York City and her rise to the Supreme Court. Diagnosed with diabetes at a very young age, Sotomayor details her troubles with accepting this condition throughout her life. Yet, she excelled in school and attended Princeton, Yale Law School and had a brilliant legal career. Her wonderfully supportive family life bolstered her determination to exceed in school and her legal profession. My Beloved World is indeed interesting and inspirational reading as Sotomayor has written about her life's journey to the Supreme Court with candor and in a terrific style of writing. It is highly recommended.
