Praise for Wildflower
"Pure delight. . . . If until now you merely liked Barrymore . . . you’ll adore her once you read this series of personal essays.”—The 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 twelve-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
“An endearing, earnest, lightly cultivated garden of stories from the actress.”—Kirkus Reviews

Drew seems to be an impulsive person who makes up her mind to go to another country and within hours she's on a plane headed to India or Africa.
She grew up with little parental involvement in her life but by age 6 she was cast in the movie "E.T. Extraterrestrial." In some passages about movies she is so involved with talking about her admiration for certain actors and producers that I think she overdoes it a bit.. From what she says in the book, she does pour heart and soul into what she takes on, and takes her work seriously. There are some very humorous parts in the book as well as serious and even sad ones. I enjoyed the book, but would have liked it better had it not skipped around so much in time.
I found her book to be as light hearted as the cover. Very simply, she's just telling you some stories about what has led her to some pretty significant personal growth into adulthood. The book is more a love letter to her friends, colleagues, and now husband, children and famiky. I think she's feeling very grateful and at peace about where she is, and she wanted to commemorate that by writing a few stories down about the people who have helped get there.
The book is an incredibly easy read, and I especially enjoyed the stories she shared about her young adult years. She became so relatable!
There's a little bit of juicy tidbits regarding how she became friends and partners with Adam Sandler, & I enjoyed her Outward Bound story and skydiving with Cameron Diaz story. With her, what you see is always what you get and this book is no different. You arent going get any juicy Hollywood gossip or really anything negative. All in all, I enjoyed my time reading the book but I did feel a little bit let down for some reason. I think I was looking for a little more in this book than I found. I guess that's because she has always been so fascinating, but this book, while giving me a lot of insight about who she is and how she operates, wasn't all that exciting in how it was written.
