As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Will Patton turns in a winning performance in this audio edition of Swanson's YA history of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The author presents a thorough and gripping account of the assassination of the 35th president of the United States, covering everything from Kennedy's early years and the Cuban Missile Crisis to a detailed account of the terrible events that took place in Dallas on Friday, November 22, 1963. Patton's reading is clean, well paced, and demands listener attention from the very beginning. The narrator's voice has an edge to it—one that hints at the tragedy that is soon to befall Kennedy—and Patton wisely refrains from doing an impression of JFK when reading lines from the president's famous speeches. This audiobook will serve young listeners as an excellent introduction to one of the saddest chapters in American history. A Scholastic hardcover. (Sept.)

Gr 7 Up—Marking the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy's assassination in November 1963, Swanson's compelling book (Scholastic, 2013) combines riveting narration by Will Patton with excerpts from Kennedy's speeches. Listeners learn about the president's early life, family background, his heroic service during World War II, and his time in the House and the Senate. After narrowly defeating Richard Nixon in 1960, JFK moved into the Oval Office and was tested by the Bay of Pigs invasion and the Cuban Missile Crisis. By fall of 1963, Kennedy had finally hit his stride and grown into the office. Ready to start campaigning for his 1964 re-election, Kennedy planned his fateful trip to Dallas. Swanson and Patton keep listeners on the edge of their seats with minute-by-minute details about the motorcade's route through Dallas and Lee Harvey Oswald's perch atop the Texas Schoolbook Depository. Though most listeners will already know the sad outcome, it's almost impossible to stop listening to Patton lay it out. A masterfully told piece of history.—Bernie Morrissey, The Harker School, San Jose, CA
