Frenemies in the Family: Famous Brothers and Sisters Who Butted Heads and Had Each Other’s Backs by Kathleen Krull

Ah, the sweet relationship between siblings… except when you’re like Elizabeth and Mary Tudor, who very much wanted to kill each other. This book was a joyful, informative romp into familial relationships between famous brothers and sisters, ranging from Chang and Eng Bunker, two brothers who were literally joined at the hip to Eli and Peyton Manning.
If you are in the market for a good narrative nonfiction book, this is a great choice. It’s told very much in the conversational style of How They Croaked by Georgia Bragg.  I found myself fascinated to learn more of the Romanov children, The Kennedy’s and Wilbur and Orville Wright.  Also great for reluctant readers of nonfiction who have to write a report.  Review written by Rebecca Teglas
