Jennette McCurdy is officially a New York Times best-selling author. The actress’ buzzed-about memoir, I’m Glad My Mom Died debuted at the top of the New York Times bestsellers list this week, capping an extraordinary month for McCurdy, whose revealing tell-all catapulted her back into the public eye.
Released on August 9, the former Nickelodeon star’s memoir sold out on Amazon just one day after its release (it’s since been re-stocked). Now, you can listen to I’m Glad My Mom Died in audiobook format, with McCurdy narrating her memoir herself.
Read by McCurdy, the audiobook version of I’m Glad My Mom Died runs for six hours and 50 minutes and is an intimate and personal way to hear the actress recount her experiences from her own mouth. In snippets from McCurdy’s audiobook, the actress is at once self-deprecating and vulnerable, as she shares about her strained relationship with her family, before going into detail about her time at Nickelodeon, where she was offered “hush money” to keep quiet about her experience working with someone identified in the book as “The Creator.”
Those stories and more form the foundation of McCurdy’s book, though there are more light-hearted moments included as well, from running around the Nickelodeon sets with her co-stars, to (dry) humorous takes on pop culture.
