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 goodbye 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.
Award-winning actress Drew Barrymore shares funny, insightful, and profound stories from her past and present told from the place of happiness she's achieved today.
"Pure delight ... If until now you merely liked Barrymore ...you'll adore her once you read this series of personal essays" New York Times Book Review "The book is a deeply thoughtful and fun page-turner-like a rich dessert that also happens to be good for you." InStyle "[Barrymore] brings honesty, sweetness, and humor to the tale of how she fought to earn the hard-won wisdom that steered her from being a 12-year-old former child star to becoming a beloved actor... a warm and inviting narrative." Publishers Weekly "Barrymore's book is a cheerful and happy examination of some of the ups and downs in her life." Booklist "Heartwarming. Fans of the actress, her production company, makeup line, or girl-next-door demeanor, or anyone looking for a companion in book form, will enjoy." Library Journal
