Who do you want to be?” A remarkable exploration of what it means to be a modern woman searching for meaning in today’s society, QUEENIE is a must-read timely novel.

What if your beloved fiancé had kept a life-changing secret from you? And what if, just a week before your dream wedding, you discovered it? Georgia Ford, the bride-to-be, finds herself running away from said fiancé and back to the bosom of her family in California’s wine country. Best read while sipping a chilled rosé.

Allison Weiss got her happy ending—a handsome husband, an adorable daughter, a job she loves, and the big house in the suburbs. But one magazine article on addiction shines a light on a problem she never realized she had and, ultimately, her seemingly idyllic life. A masterful and moving tale of one woman’s fall into addiction and her inspiring way back up, it’s easy to see why ALL FALL DOWN is one of Jennifer Weiner’s most celebrated works yet.
From a #1 New York Times bestselling author comes her “best book yet” (Philadelphia Inquirer), a “compulsively readable” novel that shows “there’s no doubt Weiner knows how to deliver a certain kind of story, and well” (The New York Times Book Review).
Allison Weiss got her happy ending—a handsome husband, an adorable daughter, a job she loves, and the big house in the suburbs. But while waiting in the pediatrician’s office, she opens a magazine to a quiz about addiction and starts to wonder…Is a Percocet at the end of the day really different from a glass of wine? Is it such a bad thing to pop a Vicodin after a brutal Jump & Pump class…or if your husband ignores you? She tells herself that the pills help her make it through her days…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?
Hailed as “a witty, realistic criticism on the modern age” (Boston Herald), this remarkable story of a woman’s fall into addiction and struggle to find her way back up again is Jennifer Weiner’s most masterful, moving, and celebrated work yet.
