This engaging new series of leveled biographies brings history to life one dramatic story at a time. By focusing on poignant moments as well as public triumphs, Amazing Americans makes paragons of American history feel accessible and real. John F. Kennedy once called himself "the boy who doesn't get things done." Yet when he found something he wanted, he did all he could to get it. He overcame illness, pain, and prejudice against his religion to become not only the most powerful man in America, but one of the most highly regarded presidents the United States has ever had.
