Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Compulsively readable.” New York Times Book Review
“Weiner’s latest novel is reminiscent of Susanna Kaysen’s Girl, Interrupted, as Allison struggles to first hide, and then overcome, the addiction that jeopardizes everything she has worked so hard to achieve. An absolutely heartbreaking read that will leave readers haunted. Great for book clubs or for anyone trying to understand a loved one’s addiction.” Library Journal (starred review)
“Weiner, who is a master at creating realistic characters, is at her best here, handling a delicate situation with witty dialogue and true-to-life scenes. Readers will be nodding their heads in sympathy as Allison struggles to balance being a mother, a daughter, and a wife while desperately just wanting to be herself.” Booklist (starred review)
“Bestselling author Weiner takes us down the slippery slope of prescription drug addiction in this page-turning saga about a working mom, Allison Weiss, who uses pills to deal with recurrent pain, not to mention life’s increasing challenges…Weiner doesn’t take Allison’s path to redemption lightly, and convincingly shows that addiction can, indeed, be overcome, but only with genuine commitment and hard, hard work.” Publishers Weekly
“A thirty-nine-year-old suburban mom turns to prescription painkillers to manage the compounding stresses of her downwardly mobile existence…Weiner does a good job of describing the mindset of the addict and provides a realistic portrayal of upper-middle-class addiction in a novel that will appeal to her many fans.” Kirkus Reviews
