Scrappy Little Nobody - Anna Kendrick, Anna Kendrick


For more reviews, check out my blog Craft-Cycle

A very humorous, relaxed book. Filled with various anecdotes about Kendrick's life, the book maintains a good balance of serious and fun. Kendrick describes some of the hardships and difficult times in her life, but also mixes in her characteristic humor. She comes off as very personable and relatable. 

The order of the book is a bit chaotic, jumping from one anecdote to another without much transition, but it is still easy to follow and enjoyable. 

I really enjoyed Kendrick's commentary on her life in retrospect, such as making fun of her naive self and planning what she should have said and done if some guy said something demeaning to her. 

Most of the humor is self-deprecating, so if you're not into the humor of someone making fun of themselves, you probably won't like this book.

A fun, silly read that sheds a little light on what it's like to be a celebrity who doesn't feel all that glamorous.
