Title: Scrappy Little Nobody
Author: Anna Kendrick
Page Count: 304
Synopsis: Even before she made a name for herself on the silver screen, Anna Kendrick was unusually small, weird, defiant, and ‘10 per cent weird’. When she was thirteen, a classmate dropped by her house unexpectedly and discovered written evidence of Anna’s social ineptitude. From then on she decided 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 her readers inside her brain, sharing extraordinary and charmingly ordinary stories with candour and winningly wry observations.
Writing Style: She writes in a very descriptive way because she’s talking about memories and feelings.
Overall Thoughts: It wasn’t until I read the first page that I realised this isn’t actually an autobiography like I thought it was, it’s written more like a diary or blog. That just made the book 10X better in my eyes so I immediately read ¼ of the book in one sitting.
I found this really easy to read because of her funny way of telling the stories and it’s written almost like she’s talking directly to you. The stories themselves are obviously hilarious, you couldn’t expect any less from her so I won’t ruin any of the actual content for you in case you do decide to read it.
