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 own hair.… (més)

Ok, I caved in to the hype and listened to it mostly because I had a few days left on my Scribd membership which I failed to cancel last month (need to get some benefit out of it, shan't I?). I am usually very skeptical about overhyped books and this one appeared for me just like that. I had not heard anything of Jennette, iCarly or why this book was instantly sold out when it came out in the US. I live far away from it all.

But well.. I binged-listened to it in 3 days and now I feel I'll miss Jenette and her slightly ironic voice and how she matter-of-factly talks about very difficult topics. It's a brutally honest memoir of what the life of a child star really looked like. I am really glad her mom died and she could start to regain control over her life. I am also really happy that her book has become such a success because it deserves it and SHE deserves it. Even if she hates acting, her performance of the audiobook is top notch - one of the best I've listened to! The audiobook version is highly recommended.

Five stars without a doubt. ( )

Not an easy read, but one that's so full of power, pain, anger, frustration, perseverance, and -- ultimately -- hope. Not only does this shine a light on how difficult trauma is to recognize and overcome, but it also explores the complicated relationship many have with their abusive parents.

A must-read book. ( )

I'm probably one of the few people who never heard of McCurdy, so I had no preconceptions about her or the book. She and her mother were totally enmeshed, by her narcissistic mother's design; and in the first half of the book McCurdy writes from this point of view - not seeing or admitting how damaging her mother's total takeover of Mccurdy's life was. In the second half McCurdy takes us with her as she and we come to see more clearly the results of the damage - addictions, OCD, and eating disorders. A horrific courageous story, written so compellingly I sped through it.

I'm glad she gave up acting for writing, and I hope she is able to recover. ( )

Acerbic humor makes this dark tale of celebrity very readable and captivating. Jennette McCurdy recounts the toxic relationship she had with her very unwell -- physically and mentally -- mother. It's like a "Mommy Dearest" tell-all, but the beatings are substituted with world-class passive-aggressiveness, an induced eating disorder, and a huge family secret.

It's harrowing stuff, and I hope the best for McCurdy in her recovery. ( )

It's strange how we always give big news to loved ones in a coma, as if a coma is just a thing that happens from a lack of something to be excited about in your life. [Prologue]
The present in front of me is wrapped in Christmas paper even though it's the end of June.
