When It Happens to You (2012)

Told as a series of short stories that interlink, this is an engrossing, exquisitely written fiction debut from the actress, best known for her roles in 80s Brat Pack movies such as The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink. From a woman who finds out her husband is cheating; to a grandmother who is desperate to save her drug-addicted grandson; to a mother dealing with her young son's desire to dress like a girl; and a mourning wife befriending a young girl - the emotional stories adeptly display the author's observations about ordinary people's lives and offer poignant insights into each character's motivations. Working out the thread of how characters from one story relate to those of another is half the fun. I certainly hope Ringwald has many more books to come.
