    Gleebooks review:

    Of course it’s an author’s prerogative to pick and choose what they leave out of their stories, and it’s also important to remember there are many versions of the same truth. Jean Kennedy is the last one living of the nine Kennedy children, and her memoir The Nine of Us: Growing up Kennedy has been written looking through very rose coloured glasses. Nevertheless it’s a surprisingly moving look at a growing up in this large family who have already been extensively written about. She glosses over all the scandals, and doesn’t dwell on the tragedies, but she obviously had very strong connections with all her siblings—even the much older ones, and a particularly cohesive bond with Edward, who was her junior. The book is also a tribute to her mother Rose, who was clearly a paragon of will and organisation, given that she still managed to generate a lot of fun for her children, who were all very strong individuals. Illustrated with black and white photos, this is an endearing little book, well worth reading if you are interested in the Kennedys. Louise
