(95)Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick



Thanksgiving weekend means traveling for my family.  For the first time in four years, we were able to go back to the Midwest for the holiday.  We ended up logging nearly 3,000 miles on Clifford the Big Red Van and we pass the time listening to audiobooks.

Anna Kendrick is quickly being added to our list of favorite actresses.   Really, anybody who has seen the Pitch Perfect movies would understand why we say that.  Her new book, Scrappy Little Nobody isn't so much a memoir as a collection of essays.   In that quick-witted way.  those of us who follow her on social media are familiar with Anna Kendrick tells us tales of her life.  Her childhood on Broadway. her first movie the indy hit, Camp.  And then of course she talks about her role in the Twilight franchise.

Anna talks about everything from her early days in Hollywood to performing on the Oscars with NPH. It was all fun and engaging and Anna Kendrick is every bit as charming as you would imagine.  Even when dealing with the paparazzi and her first run in with one at Ikea.   She made some comment about them underestimating her ability to not leave the house for weeks and binge watch Netflix.   That is somebody that I could definitely be friends with.

Bottom line - Scrappy Little Nobody is a quick and fun read. proving that Anna Kendrick is exactly as you would imagine her to be.  Funny, charming, loyal, and hard-working.
