just read: When It Happens to You

okay, so i’m a total 80s nerd and had to read this partly just because it’s Molly Ringwald for god’s sake! but it was actually amazing. a series of stories with intertwined characters, with the central theme of betrayal. really beautifully written and amazing characters with compelling stories from page 1. can’t wait ’til she…
