scrappy little nobody
Written by Anna Kendrick

2016 ***1/2 279 pages

Anna Kendrick's first memoir is a very funny, if misguided, little book. She entertains at every turn of the page, but her blatant political correctness becomes quite tiring. What also really bothers me about it is that she starts off talking about how much of an outsider she is, then she goes on to talk about all her friends, family, parties, drinking, sex, and drugs. Um... speaking as a real outsider... That's not being an outsider. Still, she has plenty of good, entertaining stories to tell, and she tells them quite well.
