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.
