All Fall Down: A Novel by Jennifer Weiner


Prescription drug abuse has become an epidemic and the like many addictions the recovery process is arduous. Weiner, tackles this subject in her new novel, "All Fall Down."

Weiner gives an unflinching look into addiction. This subject is heavy for, Weiner and I wasn't sure if she could pull it off but she did. Despite the fact that it took me a while to get into this novel it is engrossing, however I had some difficulties believing aspects of the addiction and the easy access to prescription drugs.

Allison is a wife, mother, daughter, friend, blogger and the main bread winner of her family. The stress of everyday life and a heavy mortgage is weighing heavily on her shoulders. She uses prescription pills to push through the day and deal with stressful situations that pop up.  Things began to spiral out of control and Allison finds herself sitting inside a rehab clinic having to face her addiction.
