A Novel in Stories
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Tales of love, loss, and betrayal are at the heart of When It Happens to You, the debut story collection from actress and author Molly Ringwald.
A Hollywood icon, Ringwald defined the teenage experience in the eighties in such classic films as Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club, and Sixteen Candles. Now the star of ABC Family’s hit series, The Secret Life of the American Teenager, and author of the bestselling memoir Getting the Pretty Back, Ringwald brings that same compelling candor she displayed in her film roles to the unforgettable characters she has created in this series of linked stories about the particular challenges, joys, and disappointments of adult relationships.
Here are stories that grapple with infertility and infidelity, fame and familial discord, in a magnificent collection that will resonate broadly with readers—from fans of Melissa Banks to Meg Wolitzer to Lorrie Moore.

When it happens to you
Excellent book! Very well written! I enjoyed how the stories were all interrelated. I was sorry when I was finished!
When It Happens to you
I loved the way the story unfolded. It was a series of seamenly unrelated stories that unfolded in front of you to reveal the big picture. Thought provoking are really well written.
Good, easy read
I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I loved the characters and the in depth descriptions of their actions. I also loved the feelings that are described in the characters' thoughts. Very well done :)
