"This A-list firecracker does it all—blockbusters, indies, dramas, musicals, and, now, a memoir—with sleight-of-hand dexterity and fearsome wit. . . . Scrappy Little Nobody is a fizzy, funny collection of personal essays that very successfully approximates what it’s like to spend time with Kendrick (long a Twitter fave, now to more than 5 million) and, as such, seems likely to have extremely widespread appeal." —ELLE

Seriously, the book was great. I love Anna Kendrick because she's an awesome, quirky actress that can sing like a boss. Hearing her inner dialogue was super interesting, and surprisingly relatable.
I pre-ordered the book because I was so excited. When it arrived, I didn't want to put it down. Apparently my dog was also excited about the book. I had ONE chapter left, and the jerk ate the last 40 pages. Punk! Good thing he's cute. I had to buy the Kindle version as well so I could finish reading.
Anna Kendrick is the reluctant adult's Everywoman. She spoke to me. This is also a woman determined to remain true to herself, no matter how acca-awesome the world finds her.
She took a near-death boating experience and had me laughing out loud at her changing opinions of "The Sea," she made struggling in LA seem like the typical young adult experience, and she gave us a bomb-ass wearing-a-gown-boarding-a-private-plane photograph. Would definitely recommend picking this one up!
All I can say is, I'll be pre-ordering her tell-all when she's 70!
I have enjoyed her in several movies Twilight franchise and Pitch Perfect to name a few, but I had no idea that she has been doing this since she was a child. She talks about the nitty gritty of theater and movie work. The insane work schedules and the pathetic pay when she started out. This is defiantly worth checking out.
