Publisher Description

From a #1 New York Times bestselling author comes her “best book yet” (Philadelphia Inquirer), a “compulsively readable” novel that shows “there’s no doubt Weiner knows how to deliver a certain kind of story, and well” (The New York Times Book Review).

Allison Weiss got her happy endinga handsome husband, an adorable daughter, a job she loves, and the big house in the suburbs. But while waiting in the pediatrician’s office, she opens a magazine to a quiz about addiction and starts to wonder…Is a Percocet at the end of the day really different from a glass of wine? Is it such a bad thing to pop a Vicodin after a brutal Jump & Pump class…or if your husband ignores you? She tells herself that the pills help her make it through her days…but what if her increasing drug use, a habit that’s becoming expensive and hard to hide, is turning into her biggest problem of all?

Hailed as “a witty, realistic criticism on the modern age” (Boston Herald), this remarkable story of a woman’s fall into addiction and struggle to find her way back up again is Jennifer Weiner’s most masterful, moving, and celebrated work yet.

Waste of money

Total disappointment waste of money and has no original content as it follows the movie 28 days. Ridiculous

True-to-Life and Entertaining

I loved this book; well written entertaining and true-to-life in the reality of the slow slide into the depths of addiction, and the joy of recovery. As with all Ms. Weiner's characters, Allison is easy to love, easy to call dumb, and I felt every emotion. Her research is impeccable, and readers will know the experience of addiction and recovery as it truly happens for some. An excellent peek into the terrifying world of addiction that does not discriminate against education or gender or social class. Those who have traveled the road from bottom to recovery will applaud her, and those seeking understanding to the mysteries of the evil disease of addiction, will find truth, great writing and the fabulous characters we have come to expect from JW. I will read this again and again.
