I completely empathise with mental illness, but the fact that she didn’t try to change it, that’s a more complicated feeling for me. Her mother’s dream was for her only daughter to become a star, and Jennette would do anything to make her mother happy.

It's a good read and I identified most with her struggles as a teenager, when it comes to identity and body image, which came at around the quarter or half way mark, so for me the book picked up the pace there. Her darkly comedic one-woman show “I’m Glad My Mom Died,” which she wrote, directed, and stars in, had a sold-out run at Lyric Hyperion Theatre.Now sat in a frosty silence in trailing traffic with mum Debra, the thought that was initially just a sapling in Jennette’s brain has taken hold to grow deep, winding roots – and she suddenly feels compelled to speak. Jennette’s road to finding herself—removed from the expectations of her mother—is impressively funny. The vast majority of these women do so, against a backdrop of raising families, holding down 'proper' jobs and generally swimming against the tide of what is expected from them. In the first section of her book, McCurdy paints a vivid picture of how a young child views an abusive parent — still through the lens of pure love.

However, her treatment by Nickelodeon, particularly on Sam and Cat (a show that was supposed to be just Sam but ended up being her and Ariana Grande) sounded awful and definitely leaves you with concerns over their treatment of childhood stars. She would tell Jennette to tell casting directors about her health issues to win over a ‘sympathy vote’ in auditions. Coffee is mentioned, decaf (probably because they're Mormons), as an appetite suppressant, or nicotine of course, and there is something to be said for the both of these, sparingly and from quality sources, but both are stressors for the body and the metabolic system, so it depends what the goal is - to suppress appetite and weight gain or to enjoy youthfulness and good health? In an interview with Good Morning America on Wednesday, McCurdy addressed the memoir’s divisive title and said she understands why the title has received some backlash.
