First audiobook I ever listened to all the way through. Read by the author which was a big plus.

This book was on my list for a while, but listening to a very long spoiler-filled summary is what convinced me I want to listen to it all they way and I specifically want to listen and not read. While the major events in the book were all spoiled for me, I love books and movies where that doesn't matter, or rereading/rewatching/rewhatever makes it even better because you notice more details. I think it doesn't matter here because this book is all about those small details, and the self-reflection while you're going through multiple hells. The book is filled with insightful, dark, funny and darkly funny details written with style, which means that while it's dealing with pretty heavy topics, it is still a very fun read/listen at the same time.

5/5

As someone who frequently struggles to read non-fiction, and has only read one other memoir, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. At first my interest was focused only on the Nickelodeon parts of the book, since the shows were a big part of my childhood and I wanted to know more about the dark stuff that happened when the cameras were off. But quickly, about two chapters in, I was drawn in to the author's world as a kid. This truly is a testament to Jenette McCurdy's writing skills, the prose flows well and you can form a very clear image of how her home life was.
Since the style of the book is her writing how her thoughts at the time were without the forethought that she has in the present, the whole start of the book shows a child-like innocence that is slightly heart-breaking. You can truly see the damage her mother did even at a very young age, and when she just wonders why her father wasn't really close to her, when she was almost brainwashed by her mother into helping her berate the poor guy every moment of his life, I was actually really sad for their bad relationship.
The book is a very heavy read in terms of content, so it's something to keep in mind. And, I'll just say it since we're all thinking it, Dan Schneider is a monster, a criminal and, sadly, will probably come out unpunished after everything he did. Knowing that, even with everything that was told in the book, the publisher asked for her to tone it down certain stories about the backstages of ICarly and Sam & Cat, we can only wonder about what happened.
These things considered, I loved this book, it was a quick read, a fun one and I was really glad to see her growth and wish Jenette the best in the future with her writing career. ( )

I'd never heard of Jennette McCurdy nor seen any of her shows. I read this book because it was a book club pick. On balance, I found the book very disturbing, largely because I think it presents the author as being further along her healing journey than she is.

When writing about the abuse she suffered, Ms. McCurdy framed her mom as an angel, willing to make sacrifices for her daughter, rather than as the narcissistic abuser she was. Perhaps because children feel a strong need to be loved and protected by their parents? While this made me feel that the author was remaining willfully blind, the style also served to bring me into her reality as a child, for whom this kind of life was "normal".

I can't help but wonder if this book was the result of a therapist telling Ms. McCurdy to write about her life as a therapeutic device, which she then realized could be monetized? I definitely feel she was not ready to tell her story completely and honestly. However, what was lost from the author being unable to bring a deeper perspective to her life was made up for in the immediacy of her voice and understanding.

She has a long way to go. I wish her well.

On a related note, we need to call out and rein in parents who force children into acting. We need to sanction studios who keep child abusers around because of their money-generating potential, as well as punish the abusers themselves. Can we make good films and tv shows while not destroying the children involved? If not, we need to find alternatives....fast! ( )

Super interesting but very emotionally heavy. Getting an insight into what it's like to have an eating disorder, and all the emotions that come with the relationships with food, weight, etc. was heartbreaking. It's even worse when you look back at both iCarly and Sam & Cat to see that the character of Sam was so obsessed with food, not to mention the one episode where she had to "forgive" her mom... It all felt sadistic, even if the writers didn't exactly know what they were doing.

I hope Jennette continues to live her life on her own terms from now on, even if nothing can erase what she's gone through. ( )
