Publisher's Summary

A collection of humorous autobiographical essays by the Academy Award-nominated actress and star of Up in the Air and Pitch Perfect.

"I'm excited to publish my first book, and because I get uncomfortable when people have high expectations, I'd like to use this opportunity to showcase my ineptitude and pettiness and the frequency with which I embarrass myself. And while many of my female inspirations who have become authors are incredibly well educated and accomplished comedy writers, I'm very, very funny on Twitter, according to BuzzFeed and my mom, so I feel like this is a great idea. Quick question: Are run-on sentences still frowned upon? Wait, is ending a sentence with a preposition still frowned upon? I mean, upon frowned? Dammit!" (Anna Kendrick)

Anna Kendrick's autobiographical collection of essays amusingly recounts memorable moments throughout her life, from her middle-class upbringing in New England to the blockbuster movies that have made her one of Hollywood's most popular actresses today. Expanding upon the witty and ironic dispatches for which she is known, Anna Kendrick's essays offer her one-of-a-kind commentary on the absurdities she's experienced on her way to and from the heart of pop culture.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    What made the experience of listening to Scrappy Little Nobody the most enjoyable?

    Loved it, loved it! Anna is just a real honest weirdo, just like the rest of us, we just don't often admit it out loud!

    "Hilarious"

    Some autobiographies I find dull and rambling. Scrappy Little Nobody is definitely not one of them. Honest and funny, it actually made me look forward to my commute so I could continue listening to it. Highly recommend!

    "Great Autobiography"

    I have never been able to finish a celebrity autobiography before. Midway through this book I realized that this was something that I would listen to several times over. Anna is brilliant and can effortlessly put herself in the mind of reader in a way that makes it seem like a real conversation. I enjoy that she gets right to the point and doesn't add any fluff to lengthen the story. This book never came off as self absorbed or fake, which is refreshing. All together it is worth a credit.

    this book was really good having it read by Anna Kendrick herself made the story come alive.

    I highly recommend this book to anyone who's ever felt like an outsider in a group and Anna's clever ways of telling stories of her childhood and her experiences in life where in lightning and comical.

    thank you :-)

    Story
    "...the idea of her."

    The first time I saw Anna Kendrick in a movie, I thought, "Wow. What a fantastic person. I must find more movies that she's in."
    I won't say here what that movie was, because I was not the demo they were aiming at, but suffice it to say, through the series the highlights for me were giant wolves, and Anna Kendrick.
    I did subsequently watch more of her performances, and the overwhelming conclusion was that she was a very interesting, funny, talented, intelligent, and yes, beautiful person. I know that the previous sentence doesn't really make sense because those ordinary weren't her, but just roles that she played. It's both unrealistic, and extremely unfair to judge an actor but the characters they've portrayed.
    That being said, maybe it was less an impression of her that I was forming, and more of just a hope that there was this attractive outcast that was a totally normal person that gets to live her dream.
    I brought all of that, plus a few interviews from podcasts, and an open mind to buying this book. I was not disappointed. The name of this book says it all. It's not just a cute title... it's a mindset.
    Ms. Kendrick comes off as...no wait... She IS your best friend, little sister, favorite aunt, drinking buddy, and Jessie's girl.
    Before reading this book, I liked the idea of Anna Kendrick. Now, after finishing it (all in one day I might add), I realize that Anna Kendrick isn't some starlet on a pedestal... Anna Kendrick is us. And for that, Anna, we thank you.

    to:dr- Buy this book and thank me later.

    "For.. aspiring actors/actresses perhaps?"
    What did you like best about Scrappy Little Nobody? What did you like least?

    Premise: I loved the Pitch Perfect movies and Anna Kendrick is a very talented singer and she makes me laugh out loud when she does her interviews.
    That being said, let's now get to this audiobook.

    Having listened to the audiobook, it was still entertaining at times hearing Anna talk so fast she was rambling one thousand words per second and some anecdotes were funny indeed but I could not relate to her at all.
    She talked about her experience moving out to LA at seventeen, going to premieres and the night of the Oscars and even though she's very down to earth, it was still an actress that basically lives in another world compared to mine. Plus, there was the whole "adolescence" where she tried out new things like going to college parties or doing some drungs or drinking which might be normal for the American culture but it is definitely not common where I live.

    I would recommend it to people who want to enter the acting world, to understand that it is not easy and there are tons of sacrifices to go through if you want to make it but if you're passionate and determined you CAN make it, despite all the efforts.
    So I can recognize some of its value but it wasn't for me, unfortunately. But yeah, it kept me company.

    "Kendrick is genius"

    If you're a fan, this is worth a listen.
    Kendrick's well known humour comes through in almost all her stories of a young, aspiring actress, her struggles with money and fame, award nights, and an almost deadly experience on a boat! And let's not forget her funny, and relatable, experiences around sex and boyfriends.

    A truly excellent book. Well done, and thank you, Anna.
