Book Review of
Born into a political dynasty, Jenna and Barbara Bush grew up in the public eye. As small children, they watched their grandfather become president; just twelve years later they stood by their father’s side when he took the same oath. They spent their college years watched over by Secret Service agents and became fodder for the tabloids, with teenage mistakes making national headlines. But the tabloids didn’t tell the whole story. In SISTERS FIRST, Jenna and Barbara take readers on a revealing, thoughtful, and deeply personal tour behind the scenes of their lives, as they share stories about their family, their unexpected adventures, their loves and losses, and the sisterly bond that means everything to them.
I knew I wanted this book once I saw that it was coming out. I love memoirs and this was one that I knew would fascinate me. It only took me less than forty-eight hours to finish it and I enjoyed every part of it. It was very interesting to learn about the personal side of a presidency and how it effects the family. I liked all the stories that the Bush twins told mostly because they were funny and personal. I think this book is a great read to learn about the family of a president.
