When It Happens To You by Molly Ringwald
To be completely honest, there were two motivations in picking this book. One, was that our library was shutting for a week and the books I’d requested hadn’t come in and in order to meet my fiftyfifty.me goal, I was going to need a book to tide me over. Two, was it was short and I’ve been desperately short on time and thought I could power through it. The fact that it was written by Molly Ringwald was intriguing as well. Unfortunately, it had one of my least favorite subject matters: infidelity. Aside from that it was a refreshingly honest novel (and a quick read as predicted). There were quite a few side stories introduced throughout the course of the main story that didn’t really go anywhere and I’m still not sure if I’m okay with that or not. Otherwise, I was pleasantly surprised to find that one of the actors of my youth is a fairly wonderful author as well.
