    Hilarious to read

    I loved Anna Kendrick in Pitch Perfect and find her Twitter quite amusing, so I was excited to start her memoir Scrappy Little Nobody. The book goes into her life as a child actor, the way theatre and Hollywood shaped her experiences as a child, as a teen, as an adult, and how being an outsider to the process, she was constantly surprised by the things she kept on figuring out. Her tone is a little self-deprecating, a little what-is-going-on-here, and a little this-is-crazy-but-I-love-it. If you like her humor, you will definitely like reading the book. However, I’m not really a reader of non-fiction, and I like to have a good narrative thread to what I read. While her anecdotes and stories are hilarious on their own, when strung together, they feel very disjointed and abrupt. I would have probably been better off reading this slowly, part by part over a long period of time but that’s not how I read, soooo *shrugs* Overall, all I can say that is that it is entertaining and humorous to be sure, but still not a book I thoroughly enjoyed reading. She is awesome at making any story sound intriguing but this could have been edited better to flow well.

    Hilarious and relatable

    Loved it! It's awesome to hear from someone else who doesn't care so much about "acceptable social behavior".

    Awesome!

    Hilarious, self deprecating, spunky, and brutally honest, absolutely loved it! Down to earth stories about growing up, learning your worth, and navigating celebrity life while staying true to yourself and above the fakeness.
