Book Review of *Weekend Pass* by Paul Cavanagh @cavanaghpaul @iReadBookTours

Who can forgive a mother who poisons her eight-year-old son? Even if it was an accident. Tasha thought she had everything under control – her family life, her career as a nurse – until her son got into her stash of painkillers. 

Now, during her first weekend home from drug treatment, she must come to grips with the damage she’s done and somehow pick up the pieces. Told from the points of view of four different family members, 
Weekend Pass is a story about the lies we tell ourselves and the people we love. And it’s about struggling to rise above the mistakes that threaten to define us. From the International Lit Idol winning author.


I’m a critically-acclaimed Canadian literary novelist who’s best known for being crowned the world’s first Lit Idol at the London Book Fair in the UK. My work has been released independently and by HarperCollins. Although I got my big break in London, England, I live in London, Canada. That’s why I go by the moniker Not That London Writer.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Weekend Pass explores the world of addiction and the impact it has on loved ones and anyone who cares about them. I enjoyed the realistic look into one family’s lives of addictions, secrets, loss, and infidelity. Weekend Pass was a fast and easy read. A must read novel for those who want to know what the tolls of addiction and it’s long term multigenerational side effects can have on any family.
