    Relatable and Inspiring

    I had always been a fan of Drew Barrymore, but after reading 'Little Girl Lost' I have gained upmost respect for Barrymore and her story. The fact that she emerged from childhood such a strong and beautiful woman when she's been through hell is so inspiring. Her story, 'Little Girl Lost' is not only about a talented actress and her difficult childhood, but the story of overcoming life's difficulties. I read it in one sitting, and it's premise has stayed with me ever since. 'Little Girl Lost' is essential especially for teen readers, because it will encourage them to get help and triumph over their problems. I found that this book deeply pin-points the trouble of young girls, and not only child stars like Barrymore. This book is a gem that continues to inspire me today.

    Drews struggle to overcome

    Little Girl Lost is the story written and told by Drew Barrymore. Drew became a Hollywood favorite for her role as Gertie in the Steven Spielberg blockbuster E.T. Drewâ¿¿s Grandfather is the famous movie legend John Barrymore. During the non-fiction book Drew overcomes her addictions to alcohol, and drugs; including marijuana and cocaine. Just as her acting career begins to take off. Drew also has to deal with her mother and her addictions as well and trying to deal with life in an unstable home. Drewâ¿¿s unfortunate genes that were passed on to her from her father that was never there for her growing up, are both a negative and positive. He gave her the passion to act and a desperate need of self-destruction. Drew was in and out of rehab centers all before the age of 16. She eventually overcomes her addictions and succumbs the disease that has haunted her family for years. During the first three chapters of Little Girl Lost you are introduced to a six year old Drew. These chapters show you how she was insecure with herself at an early age. Later during the book you get a real feel for when her self-destruction began as she experiments and becomes addicted to drugs and alcohol. Barrymore began to hang out with older kids and becomes a regular on the Hollywood night scene. At first you think that sheâ¿¿s doing the typical teenage thing experimenting and all. Then you finally realize how much deeper it was for Drew and how this was how she dealt with her hectic life. She went about it the only way she knew how and later comes to terms with it when she enters rehab. Towards the end of the Book, Barrymore is still struggling with her addictions at the young age of fourteen, and recognizes them more thoroughly than before. She attended AA meetings for a while and continued to see her therapist on a weekly basis. The book comes to a close with Drew recognizing her downfalls and is willing to talk about them before she needs the feel to deal with them otherwise. I feel that this book gave me a real insight on a young actressâ¿¿s life and how there people just like everyone. They have feelings and downfalls, they just have to deal with them in the spot light which I think makes it a little harder for them. I now see Drew as a role model for teenagers that might be struggling with the same things she had to deal with. She taught me that to overcome negatives in your life you have to first be willing to let others help you and get the right treatment for your problems.

    wow!!!

    I've always liked Drew Barrymore but I never knew that she had been into drugs. It's amazing how much you cant tell from just looking at a person. I was interested in it because my own mom was into drugs and they shared the same lives and i could relate it so much to my mother. I have more respect for Drew now because I know how hard it is to quit because i had seen my mom go through it and her being able to do that is an amazing thing.

    Survival story of a child actress

    "Little Girl Lost" is an inspirational story to readers young and old. Drew Barrymore's forceful style of telling grabs the reader in a mystical phase, which disallowes the book to be put down. It is absolutly amazing how the simple scentence structure can form highly dramatic scenes. The honest feelings Drew displays in her book makes readers sympathize for her, feel anger towards similar people or things, and feel humorous at times. The rollercoaster of different reactions and emotions ends in a perfectly formed gentleness that leaves the reader with a sense of releif, happiness, and maybe pride in Drew's extraordinary acomplishment.

    "Little Girl Lost"

    When I first started reading the book, to me it was somewhat hard to comprehend but once I continued reading I really got into it. "Little Girl Lost" by Drew Barrymore was one of the best books I have ever read. After reading it I have more respect for Drew and she is an inspiration to me. The book helps people in similar situations know that they can grow stronger and overcome the problems that life holds. It is great to know that celebrities don't have perfect lives...they are real people who have real problems just like us. I would recommend this book to everyone especially those in similar situations as Drew was. It helps people deal with their own issues and realize they are beautiful the way they are. Remember you can do anything that you put your mind to no matter how difficult it is. It'll only make you stronger.

    an awesome book for all you that have had problems and don't wana feel like the only one

    This book was awesome. Once I started I couldn't really put it down. It took me a while to get into it though, but after I got a feel for the book I just kept on reading. It was an excellent book to learn from and to appreciate how much better you have it if you don't go through those problems

    Review

    This was a very well written book. It is amazing to learn about all the terrible things that Drew has lived through. She is a very strong, talented actress who has come along way. I especially liked this book, because she wrote it. It is in her own words and from her point of veiw, not the media's.

    Little Girl's Life

    This book gives people an outstanding view into the life of a drug addict and the life getting out of rehab. I'm 12 years old and this book really influenced my decision on drugs.

    Drew Barrymore shines with a wonderful message!

    I read 'Little Girl Lost' because I have and always will be a HUGE Drew fan. I realized that there was so much more I did not know about Drew. I can relate to her a lot because her parents didn't get along at all and so do mine. It made her very depressed just like it did to me. I had so much pain because I thought it was all my fault. Instead of drugs, I started getting into other trouble like being a snob, hitting and pushing people out of my way and getting in-school suspension a lot and reading her book in someway that I can't even explain inspired me that how I was being was wrong. I have now read it 3 times and doing a book report on it. 5 stars all the way! Thank you so much Drew! Keep up your kick-butt acting career!

    A great book for anyone who is struggling.

    This book has been a favorite of mine for such a long time--I have bought many copies of this book for my girlfriends. Drew's childhood troubles are the basis of this book. What you get out of it is inspiration; A great book, especially for a confused or troubled teenager. Drew's life is a perfect example here of what the average teenager might be confronted with daily, and she talks about the fight in this book. From this book I can truly say that Drew (comparing to what she has become today) is an excellent role model for both young and old, especially young women! Great book!
