When Christina Haag was growing up on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, John F. Kennedy, Jr., was just one of the boys in her circle of prep-school friends, a skinny kid who lived with his mother and sister on Fifth Avenue and who happened to have a Secret Service detail following him at a discreet distance at all times. A decade later, after they had both graduated from Brown University and were living in New York City, Christina and John were cast in an off-Broadway play together. It was then that John confessed his long-standing crush on her, and they embarked on a five-year love affair.

Glamorous and often in the public eye, but also passionate and deeply intimate, their relationship was transformative for both of them. With exquisite prose, Haag paints a portrait of a young man with an enormous capacity for love and an adventurous spirit that drove him to live life to its fullest.

A haunting book, Come to the Edge is a lasting evocation of a time and a place - of the indelible sting of the loss of young love, and of the people who shape you and remain with you, whether in person or in spirit. It is about being young and full of hope, with all the potential of your life as yet unfulfilled, and of coming of age at a moment in New York's history when the city at once held danger, magic, and endless possibilities for self-discovery. Rarely has a love story been told so beautifully.

    " I have read of couple of JFK,Jr. memoirs/biographies, and I have always been a bit facinated with him. This author had a long, intimate relationship with him. So, I was surprised when the first third of this book was really boring. But I stuck with it and it did get a lot more interesting. And I ultimately liked it. Her perpspective was so unique. "

    " This memoir is a love letter to NYC and to the Kennedy family by Christina Haag, John F. Kennedy Jr.'s childhood friend and girlfriend for 5 years. A sweet, touching and enjoyable read. "
