    Description

    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.

    Loved it

    Well written and spoken by Jennette. The story flows really well and gives us the impression of really being in the mind of who she was at the time of the story despite the healing since. Really inspiring to see her start doing the work and changing after so much hardship for a young person.

    Honest, heartbreaking and triumphant

    Hearing Jennette read her own story in her own voice in itself would have been powerful enough. But in addition to this, I was captivated by her storytelling, the journey. It was an intimate and honest read and truly worth it. 5 stars!

    Definitely a must-read/must-listen?

    Intense, witty, and endlessly fascinating. I listened to it in one go and didn't even realize it. Jennette is an immensely talented person.

    Tragic and funny at the same time

    I loved this, listened to it in a week. The sarcasm and irony are omnipresent and well-handled, and it somehow makes the subject matter even more tragic.

    Sad, funny and intimate

    Jennette reading her own story really added a extra level to this heart wrenching and fascinating relationship between an abusives mother and her daughter. As a parent, my heart breaks for the author’s lack of a normal childhood due to being forced to follow her mother’s dream.

    Plus qu'une histoire sur la vie d'une enfant star

    Ce livre est une passionnante histoire de résilience, avec des éclats d'un humour qui frappe juste. L'autrice lit le texte elle-même, parfois un peu vite et c'est pourquoi je n'ai mis que quatre étoiles à la performance.

    Everything I thought it would be and more

    I knew that this book would discuss the childhood acting industry and Jennette’s mom, but there was so much more to this book.
    It truly does an amazing job breaking down the emotions and thought processes of a little girl who grew up in an abusive environment that she thought was normal. A person who she loved and admired she later learned never had her best interest in mind. There are so many people this book will help and that will be able to relate to even one part of Jennette McCurdy’s story.
    I can’t recommend reading this book enough! And I’m beyond happy that the audio version is read by Jennette herself!

    Unexpectedly poor narration

    The book is good and I highly recommend it to anyone. It’s among the best memoirs I have read- and it really doesn’t feel right when a memoir is not read by the author. However, while I love Jennette McCurdy’s voice, she often mumbles and speaks rapidly as if she’s rushing through this book. There were times I could not understand her, and I don’t want to slow a book down. If she had just slowed it down a bit and spoken more clearly, the narration could have been excellent.

    I honestly want to keep this book but I am finding myself reading along with the ebook so I don’t miss what she’s saying. I’m only a few chapters in so if I continue to find I can’t make out her mumbling I might be unable to finish and will have to stick with only the ebook or a hard copy. Hopefully it gets better- and again, I really do love Jennette.

    intense, painful, but cathartic

    this is the first time I’ve ever pre-ordered on audible, because I was just so impatient for this to be released. I knew some of the details of it beforehand, I’ve pretty much watched/listened to all the podcasts from Jennette, either her own or the ones she’s guested on, but the book was what I was really impatient for.
    For me, the best part was that she was the one reading it. Given the subject matter, I’d have understood if she had chosen not to, but I hope maybe it was a bit cathartic for her to be the one reading and getting it out.
    I relate a bit too much to some of the key issues she discusses, and I’m working through them myself. Reading this book was painful for that reason.
    I finished the audiobook in one night. Afterwards, the next morning, I called my sister and we had a crazy long conversation about our parents and childhood, and it was probably the best painful thing I’ve ever done.

    this audiobook is great for so many reasons, but it also helps to feel closer to the real hidden stories of someone we pretty much grew up alongside. knowing she had similar struggles as my siblings and myself, and that she felt just as isolated, especially in the spotlight, is sad, yes.. but it builds a weird sense of “shared trauma” for me that makes me feel a bit less alone.

    that said, a lot of this book is definitely very intense, so make sure you are mentally safe and prepared to read.
    especially if you have any issues with some of the things she talks about. maybe plan some self care for afterwards. get some hot tea, listen to relaxing music, that sort of thing.

    I don’t regret getting this book, and will probably at some point listen again when I’m ready, as one of the best things that’s helped me is hearing from others who have gone through similar things. admittedly, I haven’t done much acting, but I related about the writing parts and growing up constantly trying to read/predict the volatility of people around me.

    so thank you for sharing this with us, Jennette.

    amazing!!

    absolutely amazingly written and performed. Jennette's sense of humor and voice are very strong and her ability to act really enhanced the listening experience. her story was truly heartbreaking and there were several times I physically recoiled at the things her mother and "the creator" did to her. the ending was inspiring and hopeful and the final chapter is a fantastic conclusion to this memoir. hope to see more writing from Jennette!!

    To Jeanette McCurdy

    I have loved iCarly ever since it came out. I have also enjoyed the character of Sam. However, I don't think about meeting my favorite actresses or actors. I'm not obsessed with their personal lives or feel the need to follow them around.

    For me I'm okay with watching them on the screen and following their careers as far as what movies and shows they are in. That is as far invested in them as I get.

    I am also a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints. I somewhat can relate to the feelings that she had with her mom and wanting to please her. As well as her mom not being healthy and that having a great impact on her. My story is not the same but some of my feelings are.

    I want to apologize to Jeanette McCurdy. I did see you as Sam and not as who you really are. Thank you for sharing your story. Thank you for sharing your truth. Your reminder to us (your fans and anyone else reading your book) that you are a person who deserves to grow up and become who you want to be is a truth that needed to be told.

    Congratulations making great progress with your life. I'm rooting for you. 🎉🥰

    You are an amazing writer!!! I loved your narration of your book.

    I’ve never listened to an audio book- or even picked up a book in a good while, but as someone with mommy issues this was a must. Thank you for sharing your story, I haven’t felt this much validation in awhile. All the love

    heart wrenching, wonderful

    I have been waiting for this book to come out since it was announced. It did not disappoint, it was relatable and shocking and to hear what someone i adored in my childhood was going through the same things I was. It was beautiful to see her grow throughout the book, I am also glad my mom died. I’m happy for her and I hope she continues to grow and do what makes her happy.

    Not bad, but not what I expected

    This one is hard to listen to if you have any experience with abuse but never gets too deep into that.

    Performance: I expected the performance to have a bit more emotion to it, as often books like this read by the author have a bit more life to them. However, this was quite flat throughout.

    Book: Throughout the years, Jennette has been very open about her life and the issues she had with her mother. For the most part, that is all this book is, so I was a bit shocked that outside of a small mention at the beginning little is said about her accounts or earnings. For someone like myself that has heard the sound bites but not much else I wish that would have been addressed.

    Additionally, the wrap up at the end felt devoid of an answer on how she has gone from doing ANYTHING to appease her overbearing mother to being happy she passed. Is this not the title? Yes, we know what she did but the work to break her hold is really never touched on. This could have been a story of how it happened, the mourning of a loss, and the realization of what crap luck has befallen Jennette but how she has grown. Instead, it is a disjointed stream of this horrible event to that horrible event and not much else.

    Maybe the work to deal with this is in book 2? I guess we'll see.

    Excellent Read!

    Heartbreaking and real. One of those books you recommend to everyone because it teaches so much about live. Jennette McCurdy gives much of herself in these hauntingly beautifully drafted chapters and her narration of the book is obviously on point .
    Definitely does not disappoint the hype!

    I wish Jennette nothing but happiness and peace for her future. Thank you so much for sharing <3

    One of the best audiobooks I have ever heard

    The way Jennette's story is told, the words so well chosen and the story is incredible. A book that on one hand breaks your heart and scares you but also leaves you with immense hope. It shows the resilience of the author and many problems in show business. 100% recommended!

    Authentisch erzählt

    Als Kind der 2000er und "ICarly - Fan", desillusioniert die ganze Geschichte mich persönlich - das ist die einzige "Kritik". Wenn man die Geschichte und gleichzeitig die Rolle kennt, welche Jenette MCCurdy in der Serie (besonders auf den Bezug zum Thema Essen) spielt, werden zumindest bei mir, Respekt und Mitgefühl noch ein Stück größer. Hollywood ist verrückt.Die Story ist ehrlich, authentisch und mutig.
