Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Drew is my new BFF"

    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. ❤️

    "Too self indulgent"

    Drew can be endearing but at times but rather annoying talking about her privileged life and the occasional screams throughout her performance (a little 'over acted')
    Found the whole thing a little too self indulgent personally but did love how she talked about her daughters and what parenting means to her.

    "Inspiring"

    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!

    "Not what you're expecting!"

    I have discovered that my favourite way to read memoirs or autobiographies is to listen to the author reading them themselves on audiobook. I knew the moment I saw this book on the shelves in the states I had to have it so I saw that it was released on audiobook 2 days later in the UK and pre-ordered it immediately. This was another book that I flew through. I found myself trying to listen at all points of the day, not just during my commute to and from school.

    I really like the fact that this book has come out just meow, Drew Barrymore has been fairly quiet of late whilst she has concentrated on her family, I really respect this but it was great to hear something from her that was a little bit different. This book is a mixture of stories, letters, anecdotes, funny things, poems, sad things but full of openness and honesty!

    Obviously Drew has been in the film industry for many, many years and so must have a wealth of stories to shares but I think some of my favourite stories had nothing to do with the film industry but involved road trips and relationships and every day activities and though processes that we all have. Something which really came out of the book for me was the fact that he built herself up from literally nothing. She moved out of home very very young, had a rather public fall from grace and yet has her own film company, a reputation most actors would kill for and still managed to have a healthy marriage and healthy children! Needless to say I am envious of her.

    I don't think you necessarily have to be a Drew Barrymore fan to be able to enjoy this book, or even be particularly interested in her films. Of course I felt like watching some of her films as I was reading this, and I did, but in think it was just really interesting to hear about how she motivates herself, how she celebrates the joy and how she copes with the difficulties that life throws at us all. This was a really compelling read and something I am and have been recommending to everyone!

    "Drew never fails to impress"

    I loved Drew before I read this book 📙 but she didn't disappoint. She told me so many different things I didn't know about her, she has very intresting stories and I love her style of swearing and just admiting when like is just simply difficult. Just let me wanting more

    "A really lovely listen"

    Listening to Drew reading her story was great. Only the author of a biography can really put the right feelings into a performance. Don't expect to here about all of the crazy tabloid stories. This is a book about love and finding yourself.
