Description

Though this is poorly written, it's a fairly interesting read considering the co-author was 14 years-old at the time.

Of a day out with Cameron Diaz she says – “When we arrived at the school we were met by a bunch of dudes. And so I ignored all of her drinking and drugs at age ten and her emancipation from her mother at 14, and focused on her other stuff – there was plenty of it. She is a brave woman, who has overcome many obstacles that people should never have to face, but unfortunately do, and she has come out the other side to become an inspiration to people in general, but especially to people who have been through some of what she has experienced. I particularly enjoyed some of the journals that she shared from rehab, and her changing perceptions of her father. I read a lot of memoirs but agree, the best ones are from people who have something to say because they’re passionate about something, as opposed to people who feel they ‘should’ publish opinions/ their stories.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. More desperately than life itself, Drew wanted a father that loved her, something she never even came close to.

She made it though and in by 16 had cleaned up her life, to go on to a string of successes in a series comedies and dramas .Drew goes into the details of her hard and emotionally lacking relationship with her parents, and how she struggles with being honest with sobriety at the tender age of 12. In the end though, she is back in the hospital after a second relapse, scared, ashamed, discouraged. I'm giving this five stars because to be put through the memoir process when you are 13 and 14 and currently in rehab, IS A CRIME, and so Drew deserves the stars. For some reason Jaid Barrymore thought it a good idea to let a 9-year-old, albeit a precocious one, accompany her to clubs and gave her more social freedom than most parents (including mine) allow for teenagers.

T. the Extra-Terrestrial and quickly became one of Hollywood's most recognized child actresses, going on to establish herself in mainly comic roles. Drew Blyth Barrymore is an American actress, film producer, director, photographer, entrepreneur, and author. If you choose to read this book, good luck, keep a Kleenex handy and above all, if you're a parent, realize the power and responsibility you've been given. While I’m sure the book might’ve been written a little better had she been older when she wrote it, it was interesting to get a glimpse into her life not long after the start of her battle with drugs and alcohol. and “The high-low of our need to stimulate the mind yet find silly things to do at night was just a silly juxtaposition, of course.

After reading this book, it's amazing how Drew Barrymore grew up at all, let alone grew up to be relatively sane. I guess I can relate to this more than a 'oh my, this is a tragic story', I can relate because I have struggled with the same issues Drew has for as long as I can remember. Drew Blythe Barrymore (born February 22, 1975) is an American actress, author, director, model and producer. I only recently stumbled upon the knowledge that Drew Barrymore wrote an autobiography over 20 years ago detailing the issues she encountered with drugs and alcohol at a young age.

So it's no wonder a kid with a family history of depression, alcohol and drug abuse would turn to self-medicating at such a young age. Drew shows wisdom beyond her years as she invites the reader to look at her relationship with her mother, her non-relationship with her father, and her desent into drink and drugs. That does not mean she can not and has not learned to let go of her deepest pain and embrace the productive and loving life we all want for her. People who see what I’m up to on Goodreads probably noticed that I read one autobiography by Drew Barrymore after another.

Her intention is to explain the difficulties of addiction and try to help others, as well as to give an honest account before others smeared her name with false assumptions and inaccuracies. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Through reading this, I have evolved from someone who was merely interested in reading about someone who has experienced some of what I have, to avidly supporting Drew and feeling a sense of pride that someone who I don't even know has come out the other side of this.
