The Nine of Us: Growing Up Kennedy by Jean Kennedy Smith
The Nine of Us is a fascinating book about being a child growing up in the Kennedy Family. Jean Kennedy Smith is the last surviving child of Rose and Joe Kennedy. The book follows the children as they grow up in the shadow of Joe's political career. Jean writes fondly of their summers spent in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts. I have read a few biographies on the Kennedy family, but I found this one really spoke from her heart of what it was like having eight brothers and sisters. She really touched on the one on one relationships between her and her siblings. This was a very enjoyable read!
