Book Description

2 Jan 1990
She was a modern-day Shirley Temple, but at the age of nine Drew Barrymore was drinking alcohol. At ten she took up marijuana, and by twelve she began snorting cocaine. Here is her gripping, heart-wrenching story--a story of a childhood gone awry and a young woman battling to restore order to her chaotic life.

5.0 out of 5 stars continuously thought provocative 21 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
this book is truly amazing in a very tragic way. her life is taken away from her in a sense that she really has no control over what she does or who she becomes. She is too young to realise the dangers that hollywood success can bring. For a girl of her age is is astounding that the things that happened, happened. I personally related indirectly to a lot of the what went on. These pressures do exist outside hollywood but it is only in the spotlight that they are brought to peoples attentions. Drew is a very brave girl, now women and it is great to see how far she has come. I think a sequel to show the difference between then and now is in order. Well done Todd Gold for portraiting a very scared but strong individual. You really made this a book one which i couldnt put down ***** 5 star quality!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down!!! 28 Nov 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I thought this book read like a fiction novel, it is amazing that a little girl actually lived through all the tragedy that she did. It did tend to get a bit confusing sometimes as it jumped from year to year and you were constantly trying to remember what age she would have been in a certain chapter.
Overall, a very good read which actually brought me to tears once or twice.

This book is brilliant. It was written by Drew when she was a mere 15 year old in the last few days of her final rehabilitation. It is englightening to hear the real story after all the gossip and tales you hear about her and her life. You come away understanding her and feeling very sympathetic towards her. I am an avid Drew Barrymore fan now!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is amazing 21 Dec 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When some people hear of Drew Barrymore's childhood,they judge her immediately but this book is a great insight to what Drew felt when she went into rehab for drink and drug porblems at 9 years old. It is a powerful story of a young girl's struggle to deal with new found fame. I think this book is fantastic, especially because it is written by Drew Barrymore when she was 14 years old!!! This is not a book that has been written by someone who does not know her and has guessed what she has been going through.It is a great story that will have you laughing or crying.

5.0 out of 5 stars I feel like i know her! 24 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I found this book to be a real tearjerker! It is amazing what this young woman has gone through, and she is still as strong as ever. The book makes me realise not everything is as it seems, it was written well and one of the most exciting, compelling and amazing books i have ever read. If you have the chance to buy it, do. If not, you are missing out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Breath Taking 13 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
although i am only on chapter five i am absolutely hooked, all the storys i have heard about this modern day shirly temple are completely distorted and hearing it from her point of view sets the record straight. i have laughed, cried and related with the actress and i feel like i know her. I would recommend this book completely. todd gold is also a great asset to the book

5.0 out of 5 stars So, you think money buys happiness? 10 Oct 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
They say that money can't buy happiness, and Drew Barrymore proves it. This is one of the most heart-rending books I've ever read.
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. Follow Drew's sad real life drama as she goe's into and back out of rehab. What was the backlash on her career? Her relationships with her 'friends'? Her suicide attempt?
This book is so good I had to buy copies for my friends. I just couldn't believe she wrote 'Little Girl Lost' when she was just 14 years old. Honestly, just trust me me and buy a copy. This book will give you the courage to face up to life's trials.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive 2 Sep 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Before I read this book I had little, or no, idea about Drew Barrymore's life. From reading this book it is clear she is no ordinary Hollywood actress. I felt so sad reading this book; each time she mentioned how she longed for her father's attention and how she was bullied in school. Nothing the tabloids say about her comes close to what is revealed in this novel. It is a must read for all Drew fan's and more or less puts the record straight. I definitely think Drew should consider writing another novel as the book ends before we discover how she coped with leaving the ASAP for the final time and when she emancipated from her mom. This is also a novel for those interested in Hollywood lives and it proves there is a nasty surface underneath the glitz 'n' glamour. Moreover, although this book was written during Drew' tender childhood it helps her fans to understand her life now and how she craves for acceptence. This book helps to deter other kids from experimenting with such drugs.
