Jennette McCurdy

“I’m Glad My Mom Died” is a heartfelt and humorous memoir written by Jennette McCurdy, known for her roles in the television shows “iCarly” and “Sam & Cat.” In this memoir, McCurdy shares her struggles as a former child actor, including battles with eating disorders, addiction, and a complicated relationship with her overbearing mother. She also explores how she regained control of her life.

Childhood idea

At the age of six, McCurdy had her first acting audition, driven by her mother’s dream of seeing her become a star. To please her mother, McCurdy went along with extreme dieting, practicing what her mother called “calorie restriction” and obsessively weighing herself five times a day. Her mother subjected her to extensive makeovers at home, criticizing her appearance and even comparing her to other child actors. Additionally, McCurdy’s mother invaded her privacy by reading her diaries, accessing her emails, and controlling her finances.

Toxic mother

In this book, McCurdy fearlessly recounts these experiences, shining a light on the damaging effects of her mother’s actions. She also shares what happens when her dream of becoming a star finally comes true. Cast in the Nickelodeon series “iCarly,” McCurdy finds herself thrust into fame. Despite her mother’s excitement and involvement with fan clubs and paparazzi, McCurdy is plagued by anxiety, shame, and self-loathing. These feelings manifest in the form of eating disorders, addiction, and unhealthy relationships. The situation worsens when her mother passes away from cancer shortly after McCurdy takes the lead role in the “iCarly” spinoff, “Sam & Cat.”

Finally, after discovering therapy and making the decision to quit acting, McCurdy embarks on a journey of recovery and self-discovery. It is during this time that she determines what she truly wants in life for the first time.

The book is a candid and darkly humorous memoir that serves as an inspiration, showcasing McCurdy’s resilience, independence, and the joy of reclaiming control over her own life, symbolized by the simple act of shampooing her own hair.
