Now for the content: This was the most difficult book I have ever read. A compelling but bitter read. For those of us who love Drew, her story was nearly unbearable. No child, no matter who, should ever have to suffer the torment, pain, frustration, humiliation, bitterness, disappointment, abandonment and fear that this beautiful child and world class talent endured. At first, it appears Drew's single parent mother is the "good guy" but her own abusive relationship with with John Drew Barrymore (Drew's father), her codependency, shortcomings and poor management of her own and Drews life contributed to Drews life sinking into the abyss of drugs, alcohol and a pathologically low self esteem. 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. Drew was loved by dozens, if not hundreds of personal friends, and Hollywood professionals. She could play in Steven Spielberg's backyard or visit Stephen King any time she wished. But the love, respect and adoration of wonderful people never could fill the bitter and empty void Drew suffered where family belonged. More desperately than life itself, Drew wanted a father that loved her, something she never even came close to. Instead she got abandonment, ridicule, rejection, abuse and humiliation. Drew finished this book at fourteen and the prologue says it all. She envisioned a happy ending with victory and promise, after the months of hard work and intense therapy during her hospitalization.Read more ›

I didn't like how the co-writer Todd Gold at times kept interjecting his two cents worth (in italic print) like he had to explain what Drew really meant or elaborate the point she... Read morePublished 14 months ago by Robyn Porter
The book was great. I was sad when it ended because it was so easy for me to relate to a lot of what she went through. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Lucy Freilich
