Gr 4-6-This title opens on October 5, 1981, as O'Connor took her seat on the U.S. Supreme Court. Williams then backtracks to describe her subject's childhood, family history, and educational choices. She details O'Connor's difficulty in starting a career after law school, her marriage and her family, her tenure in the Arizona senate, and service on the Maricopa County Superior Court and the Arizona Court of Appeals. The author outlines the procedures for being confirmed for a Supreme Court appointment and mentions some of the decisions that have been handed down and the opinions that O'Connor has written during her years on the Court. This book is well organized with short, concise chapters. The black-and-white photographs enhance the book. Information on how to become a lawyer or a judge is appended.-Gayle Modrall, Presbyterian School, Houston, TX Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
