Full Text Reviews:

School Library Journal - 11/01/2022 Gr 2–4—Fictional children Paige and Turner exchange facts about the life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, focusing primarily on the tidbits not required for book reports. Readers learn that Ginsburg's first name was Joan, she was a terrible driver and cook, and 18 people attended her wedding. Other standard information is likewise provided such as her college and law school attendance, her struggles to succeed as a female lawyer, and her career on the Supreme Court. Cartoon illustrations display milestones in Ginsburg's life. Nothing new is offered in this title; most everything presented is already found in the numerous other volumes on Ginsburg's life. The dialogue between Paige and Turner consists of short sentences, and attempts at humor (at one point they argue about being disagreeable) are distracting. VERDICT While interesting information on Ginsburg's life is presented, there is nothing unique about this title; at best an optional purchase.—Margaret Nunes - Copyright 2022 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
