Molly Ringwald is the guest. Her debut novel, When It Happens to You, is now available in paperback from It Books, an imprint of HarperCollins. 

Lauren Groff, bestselling author of Arcadia, raves

When It Happens to You is absolutely lovely, a smart, emotionally sophisticated, intricately dovetailed novel of stories. World, I’m telling you now: Molly Ringwald is the real deal.

And Kirkus calls it

A beautiful exploration of how the heart’s irrational responses to love and betrayal can stand in the way of forgiveness… Ringwald deftly weaves together the threads of these stories, creating a tapestry that captures the emotional landscape of both young and well-worn relationships.
