    Krista is a character from the 2016 teen comedy film The Edge of Seventeen.

    She is portrayed by Haley Lu Richardson.


    At first, Krista comes off as kind, supportive, and funny. But as the movie progresses, she becomes selfish, vain, and a fake friend altogether.

    Why She Sucks

    1. Krista is a selfish and vain fame friend. Krista and Nadine were supposed to have been each other's best and only friends for ten years, having gotten each other through all sorts of personal crises.
    2. Krista knew exactly how insecure and self-hating Nadine was, and knew that her mother, very selfish and vain in her own right (and of course also mentally ill, but still unnecessarily self-absorbed), always made it clear that she liked her brother better, and how that made Nadine feel about herself.
    3. Despite being aware of Nadine's relationship with her family, Krista goes and sleeps with Nadine's brother while Nadine is drunk and passed out. Nadine is understandably upset, but she knows that Krista is all she has, and then Krista tries to make friends so Nadine does try to go along with it.
    4. She asks Nadine to third-wheel with her and Nadine's brother at a party. Nadine feels lonely and left out, and then Krista abandons her to hang with the popular crowd without trying to introduce her to other people almost immediately after they go to the party. Then, she tries insisting that she didn't ditch Nadine at the party, but she never took the time to even wonder where Nadine went until after the party was over.
    5. Nadine gives her an ultimatum. She can choose between her or her brother. Instead of speaking up immediately, and saying that she wants to stay friends with Nadine, she thinks about it, as if it's a choice between a long-lost lover, or a friend. Granted, it was rather harsh and somewhat unfair to put Krista on the spot like that, but considering how much Nadine had done for her during their childhood and helped her when things were rough for her at home, it seems rather shocking she'd choose Darian despite only getting together with him a few days prior.
      1. What's worse is that Krista knew she was the only thing keeping Nadine together and that Nadine didn't have any other friend besides her. Considering everything they'd been through and the problems Nadine had, Krista should've taken the punches, been the bigger person and try to make up with Nadine afterward.
    6. Throughout most of the movie, she's seen hanging out with other people and enjoying herself without showing any concern for Nadine. Though she probably was sad that they had that fight, she didn't appear sad enough to do anything about it.
    7. She could've been the bridge between Nadine and her brother from the very start.
    8. She would shamelessly still come over to Nadine's place after having hooked up with Nadine's brother and chosen to leave her to handle her own problems.
    9. The movie is essentially about how Nadine feels alone and being seventeen years old, she starts falling into all sorts of traps...but all of this could have been avoided if Krista hadn't ditched her.
    10. When Nadine gets better, the two of them have a short conversation before Nadine leaves to do something important. She tells Darian she misses her as if it just occurred to her that there was something like a friendship in her life, that she dumped in the trash for a guy.
    11. Krista never apologizes for leaving her alone and moving on from Nadine while she enjoyed spending time with her older brother and her other friends, making it seem as though Nadine was the only one who did anything wrong in the movie.
    12. She gives one heck of an apology after Nadine catches her sleeping with Darian:
      • "I dunnoooo....""I dunnooo...""I don't - I swear I don't even know what happened I don't even know how...it happened...it was...I don't know...I'm so sorry...I'm so sorry.......................Are you okay?"

    Redeeming Qualities

    1. You can see her at least trying to make an effort to apologize at first.
    2. Krista was played extremely well by Haley Lu Richardson.
    3. In a way, Nadine was her own worst enemy and was overly confrontational with just about everyone on every matter.
    4. Krista knew the troubles Nadine had and supported her as a foundation for their whole lives but now the one time she wants to do something for herself, and tries to invite Nadine to be a part of that, Nadine flips out and turns the whole situation into something about her.
    5. Some people think that Krista was in an unnecessarily uncomfortable position and Krista chose the route that didn't compromise her happiness just to make her self-destructive friend happy.
    6. The Edge of Seventeen can also be a very emotional movie, especially after seeing what Nadine had to go through. To be fair, she was the one who made a lot of the bad choices, and technically it might not have been Krista's fault altogether.
