From the Back Cover:

To her millions of fans, Molly Ringwald will forever be sixteen—having defined teenage angst, love, and heartbreak as the endearing star of the John Hughes classics Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, and Pretty in Pink. Facing a completely new, angst-inducing time in her life—her forties—Molly is embracing being a woman, wife, mother of three, actress, and best friend with her trademark style, candor, and humor.

Getting the Pretty Back is Molly's unforgettably personal, refreshingly outspoken take on life, love, and, of course, finding that perfect red lipstick. Whether she's discussing sex and beauty, personal style, travel and entertaining, motherhood, or friendship, Molly embodies the spirit of being fabulous at every age—and she encourages every woman to become "the sexiest, funniest, smartest, best-dressed, and most confident woman that you can be."
