The Kennedy Brothers – By Walter R. Mears & Hal Buell, 2009, 144 pages, mid-level read, weighs 1 lb.

This is a photo book with over 120 Kennedy Brothers book cover picphotographs depicting the life of the four Kennedy brothers.  It talks about John F. Kennedy who grows up and becomes the first Roman Catholic president of the United States.  It also mentions the morals and the expectations that were expected of the four brothers by their father.  I really enjoyed this book because it has a lot of pictures and knowledge about the brothers. I didn’t like the fact that he was assassinated in a parade in front of lots of people including his wife.
