Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Finalist, Solo Narration - Female, 2014

Audie Award Finalist, Biography/Memoir, 2014

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.

Here is the story of a precarious childhood, with an alcoholic father (who would die when she was nine) and a devoted but overburdened mother, and of the refuge a little girl took from the turmoil at home with her passionately spirited paternal grandmother. But it was when she was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes that the precocious Sonia recognized she must ultimately depend on herself. She would learn to give herself the insulin shots she needed to survive and soon imagined a path to a different life. With only television characters for her professional role models, and little understanding of what was involved, she determined to become a lawyer, a dream that would sustain her on an unlikely course, from valedictorian of her high school class to the highest honors at Princeton, Yale Law School, the New York County District Attorney’s office, private practice, and appointment to the Federal District Court before the age of 40. Along the way we see how she was shaped by her invaluable mentors, a failed marriage, and the modern version of extended family she has created from cherished friends and their children. Through her still-astonished eyes, America’s infinite possibilities are envisioned anew in this warm and honest book, destined to become a classic of self-invention and self-discovery.

    "Wonderful"

    I so enjoyed reading this book that when I found out there was an audio book I had to purchase it. Sonia's story is an inspiration to not only the Puerto Rican community but to all Hispanic communities. If you work hard your dreams to achieve will come true.

    "A must read for pretty much everyone"

    This is a remarkable story about a remarkable woman. It is equally compelling for what it says about the human spirit, the importance of human connections, and the promise of being American.

    "Cried several times!"

    Rita Moreno did an amazing job telling the story! I cried because of how closely it relates to me as a New Yorker and the resiliency that she has demonstrated throughout! I can only hope for such single minded purpose in my life and career as well.
