All Fall Down

All Fall Down by Jennifer Weiner
388 Pages

Allison Weiss is a busy mom.  With a demanding daughter, older parents, a part time job turned full-time, and a troubled marriage she feels the demands overwhelming her and seeks
help with some pain pills she got when she hurt her back.  The downward spiral continues and Allison finds herself with an escalating problem but feels she doesn't have anything in common with the usual rehab crowd.

Weiner shows how addiction can strike anyone, regardless of their background or past history.  The narrative is engaging and I read this in one night (of course I couldn't sleep either).

  1. Read it one night? I'm days of reading all night seem to be a thing of the past. Now I read in bed because I know it will help make me sleepy. ;)
