Audio Book Summary

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 ending—a 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.

    Probably my least favorite of all the JW books I've read so far. I spent the first 3/4 despising Allison. The narration was ok, except for the whiney kid voice.

    This book brought it all home for me. The narrator did an excellent job of bringing the characters to life. I too am a recovering mother of girls in the Philadelphia area. Every detail was true to fact based on my experiences. all I have to say is \" thank you for sharing\"!

    I really enjoyed this book! It was an easy book to listen to and the narrative was as easy to follow! I have read many of Weiner's books and have enjoyed all of them so far!

    First of all I have to say that the description of this book is incorrect--Allison does not invent anything and she doesn't jump from being poor to wealthy. She's a successful blogger who finds herself making more money than her husband, a journalist who, thanks to the industry going down the tank, is now doing triple the work for little pay. This is important because it's one of the factors that contributes to her downfall into an addiction to prescription pain pills. I loved this book because it helped me explore a world I've never experienced--drug addiction. From the outside looking in, so many of us are quick to judge those who suffer from addiction, but this book does a wonderful job of taking you every step of the way with Allison, understanding how and why she's so easily susceptible to the addiction, and guiding you through the internal struggle she has with "Just one more pill. I'm not an addict. I could quit if I wanted to. One more, today, because I NEED it, and I promise, tomorrow I'll quit cold turkey. Never again." Fascinating. It's a story about hitting bottom and picking up the pieces. I will probably listen to it again in a few years. BUT--side note--the narrator's voice for the child is absolutely horrendous.
