Staff Reviews


A captivating story of Ginsburg's climb to the Supreme Court. I love her dissents showing her boldness and grit that started when she was a girl. A brilliant biography with dynamic illustrations. Go RBG! — Martha Cornwell

Spunky Ruth grew up when girls did not do “man things” (become educated, get jobs outside the home, fight injustices). But Ruth and her mother felt different and this attitude (and gumption) carried her right up to becoming a Supreme Court Justice. — Jeanette
