My Beloved World

I read Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s autobiography the other day and have to tell you that it’s really quite a good read. If you don’t know who she is, she is the first Hispanic and the third woman appointed to the Supreme Court.
Her autobiography really delves into her early years and she gets quite personal with her experiences, particularly regarding her relationship with her parents. She paints quite a vivid picture of her family and the areas she grew up in. You feel like you’re there with her. She also discusses her juvenile diabetes, which was pretty much a death warrant for many, even with medical advances in the early 20th century.
It was a bit disappointing, though she made it clear in the beginning, that this book doesn’t cover her experiences in judgeship, but it makes sense due to politics and whatever other reasons she may have. But, once you’ve read the whole book, you, or at least I was, left wanting to read more.
