I’m Glad My Mom Died
A hilarious and sad memoir by the iCarly and Sam & Cat star about overcoming anorexia, drugs, and a difficult relationship with her mother as a child actor and reclaiming her life. At age 6, Jennette McCurdy had her first acting tryout. Jennette’s mother had always wanted her only daughter to follow in her footsteps and make it big in show business. She agreed with her mother’s plan of “calorie restriction,” which entailed eating less and checking her weight five times a day. Her mother scolded her, “Your eyelashes are invisible, okay?” as she subjected her to a series of at-home makeovers. What, you don’t think Dakota Fanning tints hers? She also shared her mother’s diaries, emails, and all of their money until she was sixteen years old.
Jennette tells all of this in frank detail in I’m Glad My Mom Died, as well as what happens when the dream comes true. Suddenly, she becomes a household name after being cast in a new Nickelodeon sitcom called iCarly. Jennette is plagued by anxiety, guilt, and self-loathing, which manifest as eating disorders, addiction, and a succession of bad relationships, while Mom is thrilled, contacting fan club moderators and getting on first-name terms with the paparazzi (“Hi Gale!”). These problems escalate when her mother passes away from cancer shortly after she and Ariana Grande take the lead roles in the iCarly spinoff Sam & Cat. After years of struggling, Jennette begins the road to recovery after she finds treatment and gives up performing.

Lessons in Chemistry
Penguin presents this work. Featuring an in-depth conversation with Pandora Sykes, the author. This is the beginning of your power to alter not only the world but also yourself. Elizabeth Zott, a chemist, is definitely not your typical female. Elizabeth Zott, in particular, would be the first to argue that such a thing does not exist.
Her all-male staff at Hastings Research Institute in the early 1960s had a very unscientific outlook on gender equality. Except for one person named Calvin Evans, a lonely, intelligent grudge-holder who falls in love with her thoughts despite being nominated for a Nobel Prize. The effects are those of genuine chemistry.
But just like science, life is full of surprises. And that’s why, a few years later, not only is Elizabeth Zott a single mother, but she’s also the reluctant star of America’s most adored cooking show, Supper at Six. One tablespoon of acetic acid and a pinch of sodium chloride, as Elizabeth suggests, are game-changers in the kitchen. However, not everyone is pleased with her rising popularity. Elizabeth Zott isn’t simply teaching women how to cook, it seems. She is challenging them to shake things up. Get to know Elizabeth Zott, the unusual, unbending one.
