Reviews

"This A-list firecracker does it all--blockbusters, indies, dramas, musicals, and, now, a memoir--with sleight-of-hand dexterity and fearsome wit. . . . Scrappy Little Nobody is a fizzy, funny collection of personal essays that very successfully approximates what it's like to spend time with Kendrick (long a Twitter fave, now to more than 5 million) and, as such, seems likely to have extremely widespread appeal." --ELLE
"Scrappy Little Nobody lets readers feel like they have spent an afternoon chatting with their closest friend." --Booklist
"Of the pantheon of funny, smart, strong screen women to write a memoir, Anna Kendrick's is a welcome, entertaining and endearingly honest installment." --The Guardian
"Kendrick writes essays about her life in the witty, self-deprecating voice that's made her a must-follow on Twitter." --Time
"Kendrick has won legions of fans for her movies and her quips on Twitter, and her wit continues in this collection of autobiographical essays recounting some of the most memorable, charming, and even relatable moments of her life--from growing up in New England suburbia to working her way up to become one of Hollywood's darlings." --Buzzfeed
"[Kendrick] writes an honest, effortlessly funny and alternatively relatable and aspirational reflection on her personal and professional life to date. Her essays jump from grade school reminiscences to Louis Vuitton Oscar parties to the typical highs and lows of adult dating life, revealing the witty, talented and disarmingly real girl behind the Hollywood name." --Harper's Bazaar
"The Pitch Perfect star can sing, act, and write hilarious tweets. Fortunately she's imbued the pieces in Scrappy Little Nobody with that same humor." --Entertainment Weekly
"This collection of essays about the life of everyone's favorite actress Anna Kendrick will have you laughing for days. After all, this is the woman who could even make Twilight funny." --Bustle
"[Kendrick] displays real wit and comic timing on the page." --Publishers Weekly
"I had a giant smile on my face the entire time I was reading Scrappy Little Nobody." --Brooklyn Paper
"Ridiculously entertaining." --Associated Press
"The craziest thing of all is that [Kendrick] manages to seem likable and down-to-earth across 275 pages(!). . . . In an era of manufactured authenticity, it's honestly impressive." --Chicago Tribune
