From the company that invented Demotivators® comes the latest innovation in cynical publishing, a picture-perfect parody of the Choose Your Own Adventure and Encyclopedia Brown books you grew up reading! Only this time, there's one infuriating difference: YOU CAN'T WIN! Are you ready to "Lose Your Own Adventure®"?
It was supposed to be a happy occasion- a visit to your hometown by the President of the United States, John F. Kennedy. But no sooner had he arrived than he was gunned down in cold blood! You're a brilliant kid detective on your toughest case ever! Your Dad, the Chief of Police, has a suspect in custody, a Marxist named Lee Harvey Oswald. But is he really the assassin? You're not so sure- since the deeper you look, the more it seems like everyone from the Mafia, the Cubans, and the Military-Industrial Complex wanted him dead! And they might not be finished!
How will you fail to solve this mystery? If you question the suspect in custody, turn to page 4. If you investigate the crime scene first, turn to page 12. Or if you follow-up on a tip from the mysterious Dr. Vivalzi, turn to page 21.
What happens next in the story? It all depends on the choices you make. How badly will you fall in your quest for the truth? Only you can find out! And the worst part is you can keep on re-reading until you've had not one but many incredibly depressing defeats!

The masterminds at Despair, Inc. were generous enough to get me an ARC of this book after I expressed interest in it. I have to admit, the JFK assassination has intrigued me, but I've never been one of those devoted to the case, picking up intricate details, etc. Therefore I was intrigued to find ou...
