Wildflower is a portrait of Drew's life in stories as she looks back on the adventures, challenges and incredible experiences of her earlier years.
It includes tales of living on her own at 14 (and how laundry may have saved her life), getting stuck in a gas station overhang on a cross country road trip, saying good-bye to her father in a way only he could have understood and many more adventures and lessons that have led her to the successful, happy and healthy place she is today.
It is the first book Drew has written about her life since the age of 14.

I LOVED this book! Why? Because it's honest , hilarious, real, interesting, inspiring and so wise. The best part was having Drew narrate it. I am a mother of 5 in her early 40's but I feel that this book is for everyone, maybe particularly for us girls. I shared it with my 15 year old daughter and she also loved it too. This one is definitely going under the tree to all my girlies so that they can get inspired to love and live life to the full. ❤️
I totally loved listening to this book and fell in love with Drew, the way she reads it is colourful and inspiring, I love the way that all her misfortunes in her early life have given her the strengths to get to where she is today a bit like me as I am the same age! I'm so glad she got her happy ending!
This storey read by Drew herself is fascinating exciting and emotional!! You can hear her emotions come through in her voice, refreshing. The fact that she reads it herself makes it all the more intimate. Some parts are dark and others light, there is no structure to her tales no timeline and after listening to "her" story it seems fitting. I hope to listen to another one in years to come!
With most biographies you can sometimes feel flat after reading. This made me feel happy and inspired. It's lovely to hear the lesson after the struggle of life. After this lovely book I will look for the lesson.
