Molly Ringwald leaves vestiges of the brat-pack behind with her first novel, When It Happens to You: A Novel in Stories (It Books, $24.99). Ringwald mines the complexities of modern relationships in this collection of interlinked stories. As the lives of these characters converge and diverge in unexpected ways, Ringwald explores the universality of loss, love, and the search for connection. “[Her] stories ring with authenticity, voices so true and honest that we imagine she’s been eavesdropping on our conversations.”—Vanity Fair. Ringwald is best known for her roles in the iconic coming-of-age movies Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles, and the Breakfast Club. She is the author of the advice book for women, Getting the Pretty Back.
