One should not lie to children.

There are plenty of historic figures who can be held up as role models, but the Kennedy brothers are not suitable at all. Jack was an inveterate womanizer whose wife had to be bribed to stay with him. Teddy was a drunkard and a killer who was never able to live down always falling short when compared to his brothers. Bobby may not be the scum of the earth; apparently he was the best of a bad lot but that's not saying much.

In short, this is an awful little book that no child should be exposed to simply because it is nothing but lies. Reshelve in "fiction."
