Book Description:
The inspiring and timely story of Sonia Sotomayor, who rose up from a childhood of poverty and prejudice to become the first Latino to be nominated to the US Supreme Court.

Before Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor took her seat in our nation’s highest court, she was just a little girl in the South Bronx. Justice Sotomayor didn’t have a lot growing up, but she had what she needed — her mother’s love, a will to learn, and her own determination. With bravery she became the person she wanted to be. With hard work she succeeded. With little sunlight and only a modest plot from which to grow, Justice Sotomayor bloomed for the whole world to see.

Antes de que la magistrada de la Corte Suprema Sonia Sotomayor llegara al m ximo tribunal de nuestra naci n, no era m s que una ni ita en el South Bronx.

Con valent a se hizo la persona que quer a ser. Con trabajo arduo triunf . Con un poquito de sol en un solarcito donde crecer, la magistrada Sotomayor floreci para que todo el mundo la vea.
