First Wednesday Book Review: MY BELOVED WORLD, Sonia Sotomayor
What a terrific book. SCOTUS' Justice Sotomayor will charm you with the first incident in her memoir. As a very small child, she is diagnosed with diabetes and is forced to give herself shots. She is the most competent one in her family and this continues throughout this book. She comes from a poor family, gets only a mediocre secondary education, and still goes on to excel in ivy league schools.She manages to be modest and awe-inspiring at every turn. She is honest about the failure of her marriage. She recounts the times people asked her outright if her success was due to affirmative action. A wonderful book. A wonderful woman. Everyone in my book group loved this one. A rarity.
