All Fall Down

Review From User :

If you've read Jennifer Weiner's books before, expecting hilarious, witty, easy-breezy reading, then this book will be a surprise. Although still trademarked with her sly wit, reading a novel about an upper class woman spiraling into drug addiction is not for the faint of heart. And in many other authors hands, this kind of subject matter easily could become preachy or heavy handed, and it truly is neither. Allison Weiss has a pretty darn good life--a beautiful (but high maintenance) 5 year old daughter, a husband who adores her (but works pretty long hours), and loving parents, even if one of them just got diagnosed with Alzheimer's. When Allison throws her back out at the gym, her doctor prescribes Percocet, and the blissful feeling of relief from life's pressures causes Allison to seek out those same feelings, again and again.

I'm recommending this novel because addiction can happen to anyone, but it's rarely told so succinctly and in a relate-able way.

You tried to save a life. Now you’re fighting to save your own.
It should have been an idyllic day for the Turner family – until a dying man, beaten beyond all recognition, arrives at their home, uttering the words, HELP ME.

Rob and Wendy Turner and their children try to explain away the horrific scene as being in the wrong place at the wrong time, but in the days that follow their lives are threatened in ways they could never imagine.

The family is unaware that they are being watched by someone with their own terrifying agenda, who will stop at nothing to fulfil their own twisted desires.

But when hidden secrets come rushing to the surface, it’s clear not everything is as it seems in this happy family. Are the Turners a victim of circumstance – or does the key to their fate lie closer to home?

Forced to fight for everything they hold dear, can they save themselves before time runs out – or will their act of compassion see them paying the ultimate price…?
