A Spanish edition of Turning Pages is also available. Born to parents of Puerto Rican descent, Sotomayor learned to read and speak Spanish before learning English. Raised in housing projects in New York City, she faced poverty, illness, and other struggles growing up. At age 7, she was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Two years later, her father, who was an alcoholic, died. Young Sonia learned to be independent, disciplined, resourceful, and empathetic.
A voracious reader, she found solace at the public library.
Sotomayor expressed gratitude for the many people who have helped her succeed. In her books, Sotomayor recounts deeply personal stories. I asked Sotomayor what advice she had for young people wanting to make a positive difference in the world. Look at the world, and see what you think needs some change, and take the time to fix that problem. All Rights Reserved.
