Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Those who listen to this paean to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will come to understand how the Supreme Court justice gained her legions of devoted fans…Larsen’s delivery, which rarely changes in pitch, uses pauses to emphasize important moments and concepts, as well as the young people who are frequently at the heart of the cases. The pauses help with clarity while keeping the dramatic flow of the narrative intact. Larsen’s steady narration is delivered with warmth and enthusiasm that reflect the audiobook’s subject.” AudioFile
"[A] narrative that brings both protagonists and issues to life, deftly situating each case in its historical context; the result is far more than just a biography or history.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Accessible and engaging….A straightforward and up-to-date biography about a groundbreaking American icon.” School Library Journal
