Rat Pack novel

When it Happens to You
When It Happens to You: A Novel in Stories

By: Molly Ringwald

Genre: Adult fiction

Pages: 256

Published: 2012

Audiobook: 7 CD's

Read: May

4 out of 5

When I choose this book, I thought it was an autobiography so obviously I didn’t read the description. I grew up with the rat pack, so after I got over my disappointment of not hearing about Ringwald’s “real” life I did enjoy her fictional novel. I loved the way the short stories, that are completely on their own, intertwine to make a complete story. My favorite storyline was “My Olivia” where a six-year-old boy feels he is really a girl. I would love Ringwald to develop this short story into a complete novel. The audio was narrated by Ringwald herself, which I believe enhanced my enjoyment of the stories. She has a great voice for audiobooks. I will definitely be reading her other book, Getting the Pretty Back: Friendship, Family, and Finding the Perfect Lipstick, which includes at least some personal anecdotes. She also narrates some novels by other authors I may look into at a later date.
