I’m Glad My Mom Died is PHENOMENAL!
Updated: Sep 5, 2022
I remember watching child actors like Jennette McCurdy on television all the time growing up. I dreamt of being a starlet just like her and always wondered what it would be like to be famous. Well it turns out that her life was nowhere near as glamorous and fun as it looked on TV. In fact, it was the complete opposite behind the scenes. How do you deal with a megalomaniacal stage mom, eating disorders, fame, and scandal? Jennette tells all in her book, I’m Glad My Mom Died.
I’m Glad My Mom Died was everything I wanted and needed. I had been wanting to read this book since it came out. Now don’t get me wrong, Jennette is not the first child star with a hard-knock life story and I knew this. Countless other stars have told their stories as well (Raven-Symone, Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Bynes, Macaulay Culkin, etc). However, the way Jennette used humor and wit to counteract the heartbreaking moments in her life was truly remarkable. Bravo Jennette, Bravo.
To call this book a page turner would be a huge understatement. I finished this book in four days. I could not put… it…down! It’s funny, it’s sad, it’s crazy. I highly doubt anyone will be left with unanswered questions by the time they finish. Just like Hannah Brown in God Bless this Mess, nothing was left out. Just like Gabrielle Stone, plenty of F-Bombs were dropped. Come on, who doesn’t love a good F-bomb?
This book is an obvious 10/10. It is pure perfection, a slam dunk. Everyone needs to read this book. You will not be disappointed. I promise.
