Gillian is a normal mother: until a website she develops takes off, giving her more money than she ever dreamed of, and her life starts falling apart. Gillian finds that the prescription painkillers she took for a back injury help her deal with more than a just physical pain; they let her get through her increasingly hectic days. Gillian then ends up in a world she never thought she'd experience outside of a movie theater: rehab.

Bob's wife says: I didn't care for the narrator's reading of the child's dialogue. Everything was said with either a lisp or a whine. Maybe this was intended to underscore Allison's impression of the situations but it drove me nuts.

As for the story itself I found it pretty worthwhile and I'm certain that Allison's story could apply to many women today, even if you've never used drugs to cope, you can likely relate to the struggle to be all things to all people.

I did find the middle section where her addiction deepens dragged on too long and the final stages of the story were too short and rather rushed.

The talking speed of the reading is too fast to understand

When I tried to transfer the downloaded book to my Ipod, a window appeared which said that the license of this book did not allow transfer to Apple devices. I checked the licensing tab in Overdrive Media Console on my computer, and it definitely indicated that transferring this book to Apple devices was NOT allowed. I think that should be made known somewhere in the information for the Downloadable Audiobook version of this novel.
