Sonia Sotomayor is the first Latina Supreme Court Justice in the history of the United States, but her road there wasn't easy. She overcame many challenges along the way, including a diagnosis of diabetes at age seven. But she didn't let that stop her from achieving her dream and inspiring children all over the world to work hard and believe in themselves.
Inspired by the #1 New York Times bestselling series She Persisted by Chelsea Clinton and Alexandra Boiger comes a chapter book that teaches young readers all about Sotomayor's life and influence! Written by award-winning author Meg Medina, with black and white illustrations by Gillian Flint, this book captures the justice's determination and drive. For newly independent readers, it's a compelling introduction to a woman who is a role model for millions — and how she persisted.
