    When it happens to you, you will be surprised. That thing they say about how you knew all the time, but just weren't facing it? That might be the case, but nevertheless, there you will be. Molly Ringwald mines the complexities of modern relationships in this gripping and nuanced collection of interlinked stories. Writing with a deep compassion for human imperfection, Ringwald follows a Los Angeles family and their friends and neighbors while they negotiate the hazardous terrain of everyday life - revealing the deceptions, heartbreak, and vulnerability familiar to us all.

    I got this partly based on the reviews and partly as a curiosity item, but I was rewarded with an excellent book.
    I found the writing insightful and moving. She did a very good job of describing the heartbreak as well as the joy of relationships.
    At first I felt the reading was a little flat but as I continued, I was hooked. It had just the right amount of emotion to match the different stories. I loved how each short story was connected to the others. It reminded me of O Henry's "Cabbages and Kings" in this respect.
    Very good.
