Audio Book Summary

The New York Times bestselling collection of humorous autobiographical essays by the Academy Award nominated actress and star of Up in the Air and Pitch Perfect.

Even before she made a name for herself on the silver screen starring in films like Pitch Perfect, Up in the Air, Twilight, and Into the Woods, Anna Kendrick was unusually small, weird, and “10 percent defiant.”

At the ripe age of thirteen, she had already resolved to “keep the crazy inside my head where it belonged. Forever. But here’s the thing about crazy: It. Wants. Out.” In Scrappy Little Nobody, she invites readers inside her brain, sharing extraordinary and charmingly ordinary stories with candor and winningly wry observations.

With her razor-sharp wit, Anna recounts the absurdities she’s experienced on her way to and from the heart of pop culture as only she can—from her unusual path to the performing arts (Vanilla Ice and baggy neon pants may have played a role) to her double life as a middle-school student who also starred on Broadway to her initial “dating experiments” (including only liking boys who didn’t like her back) to reviewing a binder full of butt doubles to her struggle to live like an adult woman instead of a perpetual “man-child.”

Enter Anna’s world and follow her rise from “scrappy little nobody” to somebody who dazzles on the stage, the screen, and now the page—with an electric, singular voice, at once familiar and surprising, sharp and sweet, funny and serious (well, not that serious).

    Listening to Anna herself tell her story was a delight! She\'s irrepressibly funny and there is a deeper knowledge of herself even in her self depreciation. Loved it! Hope she writes another!

    Im a bit biased because I think Kendrick is a fantastic Actress. She comes across just as I would have imagined from the characters she plays. I actually bought the paperback to give to my 18-year-old daughter.

    Fabulously funny! Spontaneously laughed out loud a dozen times. I long for the day I can tell her to her face how much I enjoyed and learned from her first autobiography. Fingers crossed she will write another.

    A bit of a slow start, but overall a really good listen that makes you feel like you're friends with Anna. Recommend for all the awkward, lazy, and aloof people out there seeking a virtual connection
