Scrappy Little Nobody
Artist/Author/Cast: 
Kendrick, Anna
ISBN: 
9781501117206

A collection of humorous autobiographical essays by the Academy Award-nominated actress and star of Up in the Air and Pitch Perfect . Even before she made a name for herself on the silver screen starring in films like Pitch Perfect , Up in the Air , Twilig ht , and Into the Woods , Anna Kendrick was unusually small, weird, and 10 percent defiant. At the ripe age of thirteen, she had already resolved to keep the crazy inside my head where it belonged. Forever. But here 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 unusual path to the performing arts (Vanilla Ice and baggy neon pants may have played a role) to her double life as a middle-school student who also starred on Broadway to her initial dating experiments (including only liking boys who didn t like her back) to reviewing a binder full of butt doubles to her struggle to live like an adult woman instead of a perpetual 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, singular voice, at once familiar and surprising, sharp and sweet, funny and serious (well, not that serious)."

Lenna is Strength, a manifestation of the Tarot card, and powerful beyond reckoning. But when she's pulled into the human realm and tasked with protecting a young boy, everything is thrown into chaos. Lenna's not supposed to be here, interacting with mortals. She's definitely not supposed to be drawn to the sexy mercenary sent to retrieve her by any means necessary . . . As a Hunter for magical beings, Caine's duty is simple: return this compelling, impossibly attractive woman and secure the long lost Tarot deck that made travel between worlds possible. Instead he's drawn into Lenna's dangerous rescue mission and blindsided by his growing feelings. But there is more than one enemy to contend with. And as the clock runs out, failure means not just the loss of an innocent life and the woman Caine has come to love, but the destruction of Lenna's entire world.
