WILDFLOWER by DREW BARRYMORE
I really enjoyed reading "Wildflower" and it was a good read. However, I was very surprised to read about her sad childhood. I also couldn't believe that any judge would give a fourteen year old child her emancipation, which means she would be living on her own.
Liked Drew's honesty and openness. Her life went down many paths, but she made good choices after her "wild child" days. She met many good people who supported her. I liked the chapter "The Royal Hawaiian" about her grandfather, who loved Drew deeply and had a great love for education.
Drew shows that you can overcome anything, and not being perfect is okay. I think this book would make a good movie.
