    Didn鈥檛 see a thread so I figured I would make one. If you鈥檝e been around since the OG KTT days you know I鈥檓 a big Jennette fan. So it was only natural I would gravitate towards this book.

    This is honestly an amazing read with all my bias aside. Not sure if anyone on here has actually read it but I鈥檇 love to talk about it in depth or even just give my personal thoughts for anyone interested in reading it eventually.

    Pretty interested in reading this. I have family members very similar to how Jennette has described her mom, and I relate to a lot of what she鈥檚 said in interviews.

    Give your thoughts, I got it in my TBR. Heard she's a natural when it comes to storytelling.

    Very natural storytelling. It鈥檚 hard to explain with words but once you read it it鈥檒l make sense that the book just flows like she鈥檚 telling an actual story vs it being a memoir.

    The one thing important about this book is that it鈥檚 a story of manipulation and how so many adults in her life failed her and basically robbed her of her childhood. Yet people want to make it seem like it鈥檚 this Nickelodeon tell all when it isn鈥檛. Dan isn鈥檛 mentioned until about 100 pages into the book and it鈥檚 very brief mentions of him just being a s***ty dude. There are much more problematic stories of adults in this book and I hate that the public鈥檚 obsession with Dan Schneider takes eyes off them.

    I can鈥檛 stress enough it鈥檚 a very good read and it gives a lot of perspective rather you grew up with a mom/dad like hers or you just want to make sure you aren鈥檛 that parent. It gives perspective on eating disorders which I think a lot of people would do good trying to understand more and validate. And one of the most blasts got overlooked things this book tackles is the general public and the entitlement to stars/celebrities and the toll it takes on them.

    In short. The book paints a very vivid picture that鈥檚 easy to follow along with and gives you a lot to think about and consider by the end of it. Definitely one of the best memoirs I鈥檝e ever read

    Very much same. I鈥檓 actually witnessing this now to a lesser degree with someone family memebers and it鈥檚 so hard to watch honestly
