“Compulsively readable.”
— The New York Times Book Review

Allison Weiss’s husband has been sleeping in the guest bedroom. Her five-year-old daughter’s meltdowns can only be stopped with promises that she can watch The Bachelor. Her father’s early Alzheimer’s has him thinking that Allison is still in college, while her once-distant mother cannot stop calling for help. Her big suburban house sits unfurnished, and the stress from her dream job is unbearable. This is Allison’s happy ending…

When she happens upon a magazine quiz about addiction, she wonders if her use of prescription drugs is becoming an issue. Is it such a bad thing to pop a Percocet at the end of a hard day or a Vicodin after a brutal Jump & Pump class?

With a sparkling comedic touch and tender, true-to-life characterizations, Jennifer Weiner turns one woman’s slide into addiction and her struggle to find her way back up into an unforgettable tale of empowerment and redemption.

“A witty, realistic criticism on the modern age…One of Weiner’s best works.”

“Jennifer Weiner’s books should be labeled a controlled substance…You will read one more chapter, and oh, come on, what would one more hurt? I deserve this pill, er, page. And you are gone.”
