Sonia Sotomayor's story is amazing. Her memoir maps her path from the projects in Brooklyn to nomination to the Supreme Court. It would be easy for story like this to seem like bragging but she lets us see how hard she worked and acknowledges that luck has played a role in her success. I found myself inspired.
Memoirs can be tricky - it is hard to write something that is both interesting but avoids being self-absorbed. Sonia Sotomayor has achieved that delicate balance.
Rita Moreno was truly able to bring this book to life. Her narration felt natural; she made you feel like you were hearing the author tell the story.
Wonderful book. I looked forward to listening to the next chapter.
