When It Happens To You

For my second read in August I read, When It Happens To You by Molly Ringwald.  This is a “novel in stories”, so it is a collection of interconnected stories about a couple, their family and friends.  The main plot is about a couple, Phillip and Greta, whom are married and have a daughter named Charlotte.  Something happens in their relationship which leads to some major changes in their family dynamic.  All of the stories somehow connect back to them. 

This was a new release I found randomly and thought might be a good read.  I’m always curious to see if celebrities are able to cross over from one niche to another.  I was pleasantly surprised to find I quite enjoyed this book.  It delves into the complexities of relationships and Ringwald weaves the characters stories together seamlessly. 

The book is short (only 256 pages) so it’s a quick and enjoyable read.  The characters are developed well and you genuinely care to see what will happen to them.  I also found myself looking forward to seeing whose perspective we would be reading next, as it goes to a different character each chapter.  Give this one a read, I think you’ll enjoy it.
