USA Today Picks Mrs. Kennedy and Me

USA Today Weekend Book Picks

What should you read this weekend? USA TODAY's picks for book lovers include a memoir by Jacqueline Kennedy's Secret Service agent, and two kids' baseball books just in time for the new season.
Mrs. Kennedy and Me
By Clint Hill with Lisa McCubbin; Gallery, $26; non-fiction
It's been like Camelot all over again lately, with a flurry of books about Jack and Jackie Kennedy hitting the best-seller lists.
Now comes a "charming" memoir from Clint Hill, the Secret Service agent who was assigned to protect the first lady. Hill, now 80, became world-famous as the agent seen frantically climbing onto the back of the presidential limo the day JFK was assassinated.
Hill's great affection for the first lady shines through.
USA TODAY says *** ½ out of four. "An insightful and lovingly penetrating portrait of the Jacqueline Kennedy that Hill came to know."
