Sonia Sotomayor grew up in New York City, the child of working parents for whom English was a second language. But her family loved learning, and young Sonia knew from a very early age that she would grow up to be a lawyer and a judge. The road was not easy. Sonia struggled with diabetes and lost her father when she was only nine. Still, she achieved her dreams. When President Barack Obama nominated Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court of the United States, the country celebrated. Not only would the Supreme Court welcome its third woman justice but also its first Hispanic member. Many Americans saw the appointment of the first Hispanic justice as an important step in the civil rights movement. Book jacket.
