Great Expectations by Noemie Emery
Book DescriptionFrom John Adams's sons two hundred years ago to the Bush brothers today, America has witnessed a long line of dynastic sons who have been forced into political roles by their ambitious relatives. Great Expectations examines the burden of being born into one of America's royal families, where the choice is between achieving the pinnacle of political power-or failing miserably trying.
