"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, and was also forced to share her diaries, email, and her entire income. In 'I'm Glad My Mom Died,' Jennette recounts all of 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"--,Provided by publisher.
