Wildflower - Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore is a woman who we have all watched grow up on the screens and in the gossip mags over the years.  From a delightful Gertie in ET at age 7, to a wild child hippie/punk in her twenties to the charming unlucky in love girl in her thirties.  Now at 40 she seems to have settled into her life and seems happy.  Married with two young daughters, she continues to act, has a successful film production company and  is now making her own cosmetics and fragrances .

She doesn't call this book a memoir, instead it is a series of stories about various times in her life and the people and pets that were important to her.  It skips back and forth in time, but I enjoyed it and it made her even more likable to me .  From growing up with an unstable family life - I love that she embraces and shines at being a mother and wife. 4/5
