I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark, by Debbie Levy and Elizabeth Baddeley

This biography of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, also known as the Notorious RBG, teaches young readers that disagreement is not wrong. That it can, in fact, be the catalyst for big changes. But disagreeing doesn’t mean you have to be disagreeable.

Additional pages at the back include a more detailed description of Ginsburg’s life, career, and accomplishments.
