A heartbreaking and hilarious memoir by iCarly and Sam & Cat star Jennette McCurdy about her struggles as a former child actor??including eating disorders, addiction, and a complicated relationship with her overbearing mother??and how she retook control of her life.
Jennette McCurdy was six years old when she had her first acting audition. Her mother's dream was for her only daughter to become a star, and Jennette would do anything to make her mother happy. So she went along with what Mom called "calorie restriction," eating little and weighing herself five times a day. She endured extensive at-home makeovers while Mom chided, "Your eyelashes are invisible, okay? You think Dakota Fanning doesn't tint hers?" She was even showered by Mom until age sixteen while sharing her diaries, email, and all her income.

In I'm Glad My Mom Died, Jennette recounts all this in unflinching detail??just as she chronicles what happens when the dream finally comes true. Cast in a new Nickelodeon series called iCarly, she is thrust into fame. Though Mom is ecstatic, emailing fan club moderators and getting on a first-name basis with the paparazzi ("Hi Gale!"), Jennette is riddled with anxiety, shame, and self-loathing, which manifest into eating disorders, addiction, and a series of unhealthy relationships. These issues only get worse when, soon after taking the lead in the iCarly spinoff Sam & Cat alongside Ariana Grande, her mother dies of cancer. Finally, after discovering therapy and quitting acting, Jennette embarks on recovery and decides for the first time in her life what she really wants.

Told with refreshing candor and dark humor, I'm Glad My Mom Died is an inspiring story of resilience, independence, and the joy of shampooing your

What happened with Steven? Why is Ari (boyfriend) not mentioned at all in the book except for in the acknowledgements?

It was well-written, and not at all as negative as the title implies, but I'm left with questions. ( )

Fuuuck. I was not expecting that. I got this from the library because of the hype and I don't often do audiobooks because my brain doesn't seem to retain information delivered aurally but I'm glad I heard this in the author's voice. It's harrowing to hear what she went through; it's laid out in such a basic way, without caveats or excuses, that the trauma is obvious but never devolves into self-pity. ( )

wow

frankly, i think the impact was lessened by how many chapters i've listened to on tiktok alongside subway surfers and soap cutting videos. lol

this audiobook was amazing. very candid, very strong writing, very eye opening, unfortunately relatable. some parts were hard to get through ( )

I listened to the audio version. Hearing it in Jennette's voice made it much better than reading it with my eyes. I felt all the emotions. A couple of times I had to stop driving so that I could dry my eyes. ( )

As a lover of celebrity memoirs, I totally recommend this one. It was an especially interesting read since I grew up watching Jennette on screen with absolutely no clue what was happening behind the scenes until I became an adult. I watched/listened to every podcast appearance and interview Jennette did before the release or even official announcement of the book, so I expected not to read much that I didn’t already know. However, the majority of the book was comprised of stories I didn’t hear elsewhere. These vignettes from McCurdy’s life, while heartbreaking, were crafted perfectly so as to not emotionally exhaust readers and the funny moments between the painful ones made the book an easier read all around.
