DescriptionThe 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 â10 percent defiant.â
At the ripe age of thirteen, she had already resolved to âkeep the crazy inside my head where it belonged. Forever. But hereâs the thing about crazy: It. Wants. Out.â 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 sheâs experienced on her way to and from the heart of pop culture as only she canâfrom 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 âdating experimentsâ (including only liking boys who didnât like her back) to reviewing a binder full of butt doubles to her struggle to live like an adult woman instead of a perpetual âman-child.â
Enter Annaâs world and follow her rise from âscrappy little nobodyâ to somebody who dazzles on the stage, the screen, and now the pageâwith an electric, singular voice, at once familiar and surprising, sharp and sweet, funny and serious (well, not that serious). ISBN:9781501117220
