Another fantastic biography in the Ordinary People Change the World series, featuring Sonia Sotomayer! Sonia Sotomayer grew up in the Bronx where she devoured Nancy Drew books which fueled her dream to be a detective. She was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of nine and later found out that she could not become a police officer or detective with diabetes so she decided to go into law instead. She went on to be a judge and the first Latina Supreme Court Justice! This fun but educational read highlights Sonia Sotomayer's life, starting as a child determined to succeed and into the influential woman that she is today.
