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.

    "Refreshingly Engaging"

    Barrymore entices the reader in with her engaging presentation of stories from her life. Down to Earth, insightful and wise this book is, as she says, for all ages and for anyone who has ever wondered what their own purpose in life will be.
    5 Stars, Loved it!

    "Not that good"

    If your looking for an autobiography then this is not it. While she does tell some funny and good stories, it's quite boring.

    "underwhelming"

    given that Drew Barrymore has lead an unusual life - child star, institutionalised, emancipation etc this is an incredibly boring book. I'm site she would have some really interesting stories to tell but seems she only wants to share the mundane details. her narration isn't great, speaking like a teenager and lots of unnecessary screaming. struggled to maintain interest to finish it

    I have always followed Drew's life but until Wildflower have never really understood what a life she has had. She is such an amazing and strong woman.

    "Comforting Read"

    I really enjoyed Drew's book and even more so because she narrated the audio version. I shed tears in the chapter about her beloved dogs and laughed out loud during the trekking experience. What I learnt was that Drew is a humble, hardworking, loving human and I could relate to many of her thoughts and feelings. Well written and easy to listen to. Have a go!

    "Drew Barrymore is a Goddess"

    I have been trying to review this book for such a long time but the words that would descibe it best have failed me. Drew the way you narated these story's of your life made me feel like I was there with you. Such beautiful segments of what can only be descibed as a magical life. Everytime I walk past a bird of paradise I will forever think of you. You are ever on the other side of the world pop by for a Rośe.

    "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!

    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.
