    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"
    "Wonderful story with a great narrator"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to My Beloved World the most enjoyable?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    What does Rita Moreno bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Wonderful book. I looked forward to listening to the next chapter.
