From youth to adulthood, Rob Littell spent 20 years alongside John F. Kennedy Jr.—through laughter and sorrow, joy and heartbreak. In this moving and poignant memoir of their touching friendship, Rob Littell himself shares his story with listeners.

Rob Littell was a freshman at Brown University when he met JFK Jr. Although Littell came from a privileged background, it was worlds apart from the glamorous life of the son of the late president and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Eager to be accepted on his own terms, Kennedy responded to Littell’s irreverence toward his celebrity, and they became close friends. Littell recounts dinners at Jacqueline Onassis’s apartment—where she surprised him with his favorite of specially burned hamburger—and weekends at her retreat in Martha’s Vineyard, where she critiqued their touch football. As students, Littell and Kennedy bummed around Europe. Later, they shared apartments in New York. Later still, Littell was part of John’s secret wedding to Carolyn Bessette on Cumberland Island, Georgia - and three years later a pallbearer at his funeral.

This is an intimate, detailed and affectionate memoir of an unusual young man by a close friend.

    " An interesting account from a person who can say they truly knew John F. Kennedy Jnr. "

    " Nothing terribly profound or new, but an easy read. I went back and forth on my feelings about this book. At times it felt like an inspirational tale of friendship, and at times it felt like reading a tabloid story written by a man who sold out the dead. Interesting either way, I guess. "

    " I enjoyed the book, I read the book not listened to it on cd. I liked it because it was a friends point of view. Not his mothers or sister;s. I think it showed him in a whole different light. He was more normal than what I rememeber. It was an easy read too. "

    " I will read anything Kennedy. This was a wonderful memoir about two young men and their friendship of 20 years. It gave insight into how difficult it was to be John F. Kennedy Jr. and the way he dealt with it all. Makes you wonder what about what could have been. "
