Who would have thought the actress Molly Ringwald could write a strong book of fictional essays...or could even write an essay?

Surprised? GHS, one of the reviewers on my blog caught an interview on Morning Joe this morning and came away with an entire new attitude. He thought this book was a "must read."

WHEN IT HAPPENS TO YOU by Molly Ringwald was Amazon's Best Book of the Month in August. Reviewers praised her incite and ability to understand how families work and the stories sizzle with  portraits of modern life.(I admit I paid no attention to the hype..)

I just downloaded WHEN IT HAPPENS TO YOU and already like the format. The stories are intertwined and the reader is left looking for the thread. I've read three of the stories so far and I have to say it's excellent literary fiction. The characters have depth, the dialogue is authentic and I can't wait to get back to it.

This is a debut novel from a celebrity who writes with great incite and skill. Thanks GHS for alerting me..and Morning Joe too! I highly recommend this book. 


Molly Ringwald is an accomplished actress with an extensive career. The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles were her break-out films
