Senator Kirsten Gillibrand's memoir tells the story of her desire to make a difference in the country's future and her resultant journey into politics. Gillibrand (D-New York) narrates in her New York-tinged accent, full of passion for the causes for which she advocates. Her voice is youthful and enthusiastic, and possessed of the know-how that got her where she is. One of only 20 women in the Senate, Gillibrand reveals some of the challenges this gender imbalance has wrought, and she describes the mixed results of some of the legislation she has worked on, such as medical care for 9/11 responders and protection for victims of sexual assault in the military. The audiobook features a foreword by Gillibrand's mentor and Senate predecessor, Hillary Rodham Clinton, which is read by Susan Denaker in a confident tone. S.E.G.
