Scrappy little nobody

Scrappy little nobody - Anna Kendrick

Even before she made a name for herself on the silver screen, starring in films like Pitch Perfect, Up in the Air and Into the Woods, Anna Kendrick was unusually small, weird and ’10 per cent defiant‘. 
At the ripe age of thirteen, she had already resolved to ‚keep the crazy inside my head where it belonged. Forever. Buthere’s the thing about crazy:It. Wants. Out.‘ In scrappy little nobody. she invites readers inside her brain, sharing extraordinary and charmingly ordinary stories with candor and winningly wry observations. 
With her razor-sharp wit, Anna recounts the absurdities she’s experienced on her way to and from the heart of pop culture as only she can – from her unusually path to the performing arts (Vanilla Ice and baggy neon pants may have played a role) and her double life as a middle-school student who also starred on Broadway, via her initial ‚dating experiements‘ (including only liking boys who didn’t like her back), to reviewing a binder full of butt doubles and her struggle to live like an adult woman instead of prepetual ‚man-child‘.
Enter Anna’s world and follow her rise from ’scrappy little nobody‘ to somebody who dazzles on the stage, the screen, and now the page – with an electric voice, at once familiar and suprising, sharp and sweet, funny and serious (well, not that serious).
