The photographs of Sotomayor, found on the end pages, provide a glimpse into her life. The first line of the book sets the scene: “My story is a story about books...” From this page onward, Sotomayor takes readers along on a journey, continually reflecting on how a particular title or genre struck her at that time in her life. For example, when she is diagnosed with diabetes, she finds solace in the superheroes of her comic books. When she experiences her Papi’s death at the age of nine, she takes comfort among the stacks in the neighborhood library. Not only did she read “Nancy Drew” mysteries and science fiction, Sotomayor also basked in the pages of a 24-volume encyclopedia set, a gift from her mother. During college and law school, books continued to be her companion. Readers will enjoy the illustrations done in mixed media of oil washes with collage elements that distinctly accompany the text. VERDICT A sincere and insightful autobiography that also demonstrates the power of the written word. A ­winning addition to libraries that serve young readers.–Martha Rico, El Paso ISD, TX
