Jennette McCurdy's Memoir 'I'm Glad My Mom Died': 5 Things We Learned

Jennette McCurdy rose to fame in 2007 in Nickelodeon's iCarly, playing the role of Carly's rebellious best friend, Sam Puckett.

She then went on to star alongside future Grammy-winner Ariana Grande in the spin-off Sam & Cat in 2013.

However, after the show was canceled in 2014 and Netflix's Between, where she played the role of Wiley Day ended in 2016, McCurdy left the world of television behind.

McCurdy now directs short films and currently stars in her own one-woman play, I'm Glad My Mom Died.

In her recently released memoir of the same name, she reflects on her experiences as a child actor,

everything from feeling exploited, to eating disorders, fame, and her overbearing mother.
