Jack's Path of Courage: The Life of John F. Kennedy by Doreen Rappaport

As a child John F. Kennedy was often overshadowed by his older, stronger brother Joe. It was believed that Joe would be the one to run for office. When Joe was killed in a plane explosion, Jack decided he would step up and fill that role in the family. His life was often filled with back pain yet he went on to serve in Congress, write a Pulitzer Prize winning book, Profiles in Courage, and eventually running for president. Written using quotes from Kennedy's life, another great biography from Rappaport. Easily used to teach students about biographies as well as the life of one of our US Presidents.
