Literary Pick(***)

My Beloved World
-Sonia Sotomayor





















Being a proud Puerto Rican myself I felt a moral obligation to read this book, although I'm not really politically or judicially inclined. I have to say I found Sonia's spirit and determination admirable. There's something so warming about her character, and I found myself often wishing she was my aunt. There's something about her that reminds me of the Puerto Rican sisterhood that is so special in the hearts of all of us Boricuas. I bet when you brush her cheek with yours it's soft, and has the aroma of those old fashioned powdery compacts. She has the sweetest smile, and the kindest eyes. You can tell she has a good heart, and she seems true blue through and through. With that being said, I felt the story of her childhood was a bit too detailed for my taste, although I do find the value in it as a piece of inspirational literature, not just for fellow Puerto Ricans, but for all minorities as well. I believe it's important for them to see that no matter who you are, where you come from, or how you grew up, you may become whomever you want to be, provided you work hard for it. It would be a true honor for me to someday be able to meet her.
This book is more of a 3.50 rating for me.
