My Beloved World by Sonia Sotomayor

My Beloved World by Sonia Sotomayor

Sonia Maria Sotomayor is an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. She was nominated by President Barack Obama on May 26, 2009, and has served since August 8, 2009. She is the third woman to hold the position. Sotomayor is the First Woman of Color, First Hispanic, and First Latina member of the Court. We have been her agent for 3 books. My Beloved World 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. 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 Supreme Court Justice.
