Abstract:

The co-host of "The View" and ABC News senior legal correspondent traces her journey from a biracial child in a South Bronx housing project to a successful and influential Washington, D.C. attorney and journalist.

Growing up half Puerto Rican and half African-American, raised by teenage parents in the South Bronx, Hostin escaped poverty and the turbulence of her early life through hard work, a bit of luck and earning academic scholarships to college and law school before immersing herself in the workings of the criminal justice system. She became a federal prosecutor, then a legal journalist. She was one of the first national reporters to cover Trayvon Martin's death-- which her producers labeled "just a local story." Here she shares her personal turmoil, and reflects on the high-stakes cases and stories she worked on as a prosecutor and during her time at CNN, Fox News, ABC and The View. -- adapted from jacket
