Anna Kendrick’s “Scrappy Little Nobody” is a fun book of short chapters on Kendrick’s life in and outside the spotlight. Humorous and witty stories of struggles and joys faced by this performer on her way up in the industry make for a very enjoyable read.
This book as a fun, lighthearted look at life, as Kendrick is obviously very passionate about what she does but does not shy away from the trials and triumphs that make up the rollarcoaster of her life, this book remains intriguing to read more. As a performer, (certainly to a lesser standard) I could connect with some of the same situations she faces, desires she feels, anxieties she battles and I certainly enjoyed her humour in putting life in it’s place.
I have become a big fan of Kendrick since ‘Pitch Prefect’ and now certainly respect her commitment to her craft from her early days as a theatre actor. Her witty humour and honest telling of stories gives her commentary, including both the good and bad parts of her walk, a real sense of ‘a journey well lived to date’.
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a light hearted look at life in an honest and uncensored way.
A very enjoyable read to start the year off.
