I learned a lot about law in this book but it was the story about a strong and resilient woman that was most informative. A good read about the road to success, with many firsts, for Sonia.

What a remarkable person! What a great book. Shows how one can overcome adversity and emerge not with a great ego but with immense integrity and a commitment to bring justice, Realaly makes you believe again in the rule of law. Outstanding in every respect!!!

Very simple read for children, and real life photos of Sonia's journey

Perhaps it is the accessibility/simplicity of the writing which may have been purposeful that keeps me from making this a 5 star read. And as much as this is meant to inspire and speak to making it against great odds, the chapter which restates all her strengths to explain in part how her life differed so radically from her equally ...more
