On the shelf: Drew Barrymore’s ‘Wildflower’
“I never regret anything. Because every little detail of your life is what made you into who you are in the end.” Drew Barrymore
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.
About the book: What you will get is a fulfilling series of funny and thoughtful essays touching on various points of her life, ranging from living on her own for the first time to her first encounters with an array of friends and collaborators, like Steven Spielberg and Cameron Diaz.
Drew Barrymore is telling her life story the only way she knows how. “I love flowers. I protect flowers,” Barrymore writes, “Let us all be wildflowers!”
