It's so weird to think about this now, but she did some horrible shit in the 1980's that most people my age and younger have no idea about. Drew Barrymore’s legal emancipation from her mother at age 14, her self-driven ‘rebranding’ as teen-seductress, and her multiple engagements and three short marriages were still to come. I am looking forward to reading her book wildflower and seeing how her life has improved since her teenage years. Thank you for saving me from having to look at these ever – the stuff from Wildflower is just cringey when it’s even remotely comprehensible!

Drew goes into the details of her hard and emotionally lacking relationship with her parents, and how she struggles with being honest with sobriety at the tender age of 12. I snapped up this book as soon as it came out in paperback and have read and re-read it more times than I can count. It gave a lot of insight of what she went through as a child star her issues with drugs and how she came through the ordeal. Prior to that position, he spent 20+ years as a journalist with People and Us Weekly magazines in Los Angeles, including stints as Assistant Managing Editor, West Coast Bureau Chief, and West Coast Editor. Instead however I had to make all my own mistakes and now I think maybe I should have paid more attention to her memoir.So it's no wonder a kid with a family history of depression, alcohol and drug abuse would turn to self-medicating at such a young age. Drew finally had to recognize her life style was no longer a choice she could keep but was approaching a critical life or death decision.

For some reason Jaid Barrymore thought it a good idea to let a 9-year-old, albeit a precocious one, accompany her to clubs and gave her more social freedom than most parents (including mine) allow for teenagers. Not knowing much about Drew Barrymore as a person but liking her work I jumped at reading this when I got the chance.Being only 15 when she wrote the book she shows courage in sharing these hard times, and I am so glad she did. I read a lot of memoirs but agree, the best ones are from people who have something to say because they’re passionate about something, as opposed to people who feel they ‘should’ publish opinions/ their stories. She made it though and in by 16 had cleaned up her life, to go on to a string of successes in a series comedies and dramas .

Through reading this, I have evolved from someone who was merely interested in reading about someone who has experienced some of what I have, to avidly supporting Drew and feeling a sense of pride that someone who I don't even know has come out the other side of this. At the time of publication of this book, her relationship with her mother had been progressing, although since this book came out, it is a known fact that her relationship with her mum has been strained. I mean, we all know she gets clean because she is like rockin' right now, but between like her bottom out days and like Never Been Kissed and Ever After, which were like her "come back" movies, what happened in between? More desperately than life itself, Drew wanted a father that loved her, something she never even came close to.

Although his input is in narrow paragraphs and a different type style, his constant intrusion is annoying and often appears to be telling the reader what to think. Faced with an abusive father, the execrable and vicious degenerate John Drew Barrymore( it is shocking to read of the physical and emotional abuse he subjected the little girl to) , a mother who was not always there, and nasty schoolmates, she drifted into the company of an older crowd and began her descent into drugs and alcohol by nine, when she began drinking alcohol, began smoking marijuana by ten (offered it by a friend's mother),and was snorting cocaine at twelve.

Drew is offering advice to young actresses entering rehab these days: ""If you don't pull it together for yourself, no one else will," she says in the March issue of Vogue. I remember reading about Drew's escapades in the tabloids when I was a teenager, so I was eager to read her story from her point of view - I was, and continue to be impressed with how honest and strong Drew is. I certainly do in this case – she was the breadwinner from age 11 months and with that came a huge emotional burden that any kid would struggle with (hence why she was a great case study for my essay about attachment issues! No one can save Drew her from herself except Drew, and this fourteen year old superstar in the final analysis is frighteningly isolated and on her own. To make it through all of that and become the incredible person she is now is amazing and inspirational.Although I do not know Drew personally, I am proud of her for writing this book, for trying to reach out to other children who may be in a similar situation, and for trying to explain that slowly but surely things can get better if you ask for help. She has been a CoverGirl spokeswoman, an Ambassador Against Hunger, posed nude for Playboy and earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. She is a descendant of the Barrymore family of well-known American stage and cinema actors, and is a granddaughter of actor John Barrymore. The additional information is welcome, belaboring it is not, and Drew's words definitely do not need explaining.
