This book is a biography of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but it is also partially a story of the changes in America from RBG's birth to the present day. We learn about her childhood, her college years, her years as a lawyer, her time as a judge, and finally her time as a Supreme Court justice.
While I enjoyed learning about her life outside of the court--a life that includes a love of opera and pushups, I really appreciated reading excerpts from her opinions and her dissents on Supreme Court cases. Each excerpt is annotated by legal scholars so that a reader can understand what RBG was doing with her words.
I felt like this biography is an excellent read for a high school students who is interested in the Supreme Court and law.
Come by the library to check it out!
