Wildflower By Drew BarrymoreReviewed by Miranda BoyerI’ve had a long love affair with Drew Barrymore. I’ve always
felt this weird connection to her although we’ve never met. I even named my cat
after her. But I promise this isn’t some crazy Taxi episode. But as you can
imagine when I heard about Drew writing another biography I was super excited
to read it.I decided to listen to Wildflower because
what better way to get a sense of the author’s meaning then to hear them tell
you and Drew didn’t disappoint. She has always been so full of life and it radiates
off her during the reading. Wildflower
reads more like a long love letter to the various people in Drew’s life then it
does an autobiography. I guess in a lot of ways, she’s moved so far beyond the
crazy young woman she once was and this is reflected in the book. I’ve always
thought about writing a memoir myself, I’ve lived an interesting life and I’ve
got some stories. But I’ve always worried that I would over praise some of the
wonderful people in my life to make up for the bad. In a lot of ways this is
what happened in Wildflower. It’s not
necessarily a bad thing, it just is.  None of this changed how I feel about Drew. She’s the
product of reckless parents in the worst sort of way. Drew later became a UN ambassador
fighting for the right for children to get an education because she never did.
She really puts her heart into everything she does, and I have a lot of respect
for the woman.On the whole, if you like Drew, than I can’t see why you wouldn’t enjoy this
very quick upbeat read.
