Spotlight and Giveaway: All Fall Down

Jennifer Weiner's latest novel, All Fall Down, publishes in less than a week! Melissa A. recently read it and had a hard time putting it down, so we know you will feel the same! See if she's coming to a town near you on her tour. If so, definitely put it on your calendar as she is so much fun in person!

Thanks to Engelman and Co, we have TWO copies for some lucky US readers!

Allison Weiss has a handsome husband, an adorable little girl, a job she loves, and a big house in the suburbs. But when she's in the pediatrician's office with her daughter, and she opens a magazine to a quiz about addiction, she starts to wonder whether her use of pills is becoming a problem. On the one hand, it's prescription medication, the stuff her doctors give her. Is a Percocet at the end of a hard day really different than a glass of wine? Is it such a bad thing to pop a Vicodin after a brutal Jump & Pump class...or if your husband’s giving you the silent treatment?

Back in the car, with her daughter safely buckled behind her, Allison postpones her internal debate long enough to open the Altoid tin in her purse and slip a chalky white oval underneath her tongue. The pill unties her knotted muscles, erases the grime of the city and soothes her as she frets about the truth of her looking-good life: her husband's becoming distant, her daughter is acting out, her father's early Alzheimer's is worsening and her mother's barely managing to cope. The pills are medicine, necessary if she wants to make it through the day...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?

All Fall Down centers on a topic that’s in the headlines everywhere from The New York Times to People magazine, as Weiner gives voice to an unfortunately growing community of women. With a sparkling comedic touch and tender, true-to-life characterizations, this tale of empowerment and redemption – a woman who falls down and has to find her way back up again – is Jennifer Weiner’s most poignant, timely, and triumphant story yet.
