EXCLUSIVE: The Bush Twins Recount Their Ultra-Public Childhoods in New Book—Watch the Trailer
Have you ever wondered what it’s really like to live in The White House? To have the Secret Service follow your every move, from first dates to college parties? In Sisters First: Stories from Our Wild and Wonderful Life (available Oct. 24), Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Pierce Bush open up about what it was like to grow up so publicly.
As the daughters of George W. Bush (U.S. President from 2001-2009) and granddaughters of George H. W. Bush (U.S. President from 1989-1993), the twins know a thing or two about dealing with headlines. But this memoir promises to give readers an inside look at their lives before, during, and after their time in the capital with previously untold stories and personal reflections. The book also features a foreword by their mother, former First Lady Laura Bush.
The sisters told People earlier this year that they're excited to debut this more intimate look at their "wild and wonderful" experiences and added:
“We’ve always felt lucky that we had each other to walk side-by-side as sisters through the extraordinary circumstances of our ordinary lives."
The pair will be on the road to promote their book with a tour starting in New York on Oct. 24, and ending in Atlanta on Nov. 18. The former first daughters are expected to hit Dallas, Los Angeles, and (of course) Washington, D.C., along the way.
At 35, the successful duo (Jenna is an NBC Today Show reporter and Barbara is the CEO and founder of Global Health Corps) have accomplished a lot in their years post-White House. And the book clearly shows their lasting support of one another. “I feel like now is a good time for women to come together to celebrate each other,” says Jenna, in the trailer.
Having each another to rely on has clearly made all the difference for the Bush twins as they were going through the highs and lows of their ultra-public lives. Check out the video above to find out more about Sisters First. And pick up your copy on Oct. 24 (or pre-order from Amazon for $25, here).
