    The first Hispanic and third woman appointed to the United States Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor has become an instant American icon. Now, with a candor and intimacy never undertaken by a sitting Justice, she recounts her life from a Bronx housing project to the federal bench, a journey that offers an inspiring testament to her own extraordinary determination and the power of believing in oneself.

    Jean says: "Overcoming proverty via education"
    "Inspiring! Empowering read for young Latina women"

    Story
    Would you listen to My Beloved World again? Why?

    Yes, to review the details of a "rags to riches" type story that will warm the heart and encourage perseverance in any endeavor over and over again.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    "Papi". A possibly sad and forlorn figure, who, though self-destructing, supported and enabled confidence and huge success in his daughter through the constancy of his love.


    What about Rita Moreno’s performance did you like?

    I liked her correct and comfortable pronunciation of Spanish words.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!! Couldn't put it down!


    Any additional comments?

    This book should be required reading at all high school campuses, especially those with high numbers of Latino students.
