Product description


“Lyrically and precisely recaptures the frenetic ecstasy of early love.”—The Washington Post
“[A] wistful story of love and ultimate loss . . . The life of a Kennedy is one of great privilege [and Christina] Haag’s memoir allows us intimate access. . . . She doesn’t bow to tabloid sensationalism; instead, she gently dusts off her tender, aching memories and bravely holds them to the light.”—
Los Angeles Times
“Perfectly captures what it feels like to be young and in love—the giddiness, the lunacy, the madcap swings between exhilaration and despair . . . Haag is a beautiful writer.”—
Entertainment Weekly
“The most honest, most thoroughly rendered, most memorable memoir of young love published in recent years . . . a remarkable work.”
—New York Journal of Books
“[A] haunting memoir.”
—Marie Claire
