Booklist - 10/15/2019 Beginning with Ruth Bader Ginsburg's birth, setting her life firmly in the context of the events of the day, and moving forward to her nomination as an associate justice of the Supreme Court, Levy, author of the picture-book biography I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark (2016) here expands on that earlier book to make more of Ginsburg’s life and contributions accessible to younger readers. Though the book is text heavy and sometimes it’s hard to track the word balloons, the information is never dry. The two-color artwork, primarily rendered in a deep, saturated purple-blue, does its job well, with the artist cleverly changing Ginsburg’s hairstyle at each new stage in her life, making it easy for readers to keep track of where they are in the story. There is rich back matter, including several pages describing what has happened since the justice's nomination, a time line through February 2019, and quotation sources, making this book both interesting and useful for reports. Final art not seen. - Copyright 2019 Booklist.
