The President Has Been Shot!
Swanson, James. The President Has Been Shot!: The Assassination of John F. Kennedy. Scholastic Press, 2013.
This book details the presidency of John F. Kennedy as well as the events that led up to and followed his assassination.
While I do not share the rest of my country's obsession with JFK, this book was quite interesting. I enjoyed reading the details of the assassination, and I could see this book being popular with patrons who enjoy reading about history or those who are interested in assassinations and serial killers.
Recommended for: teens, tweens,
Red Flags: lots of graphic details involving the bullet's trajectory and brain matter exploding, etc., when the assassination happens
Overall Rating: 4/5 stars
