Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Actress Anna Kendrick narrates her wry and witty collection of autobiographical essays about growing up in Portland, Maine—or not growing, as a constant theme is that of being small; she’s 5’2”. Her quick pace, sometimes sarcastic tone, and unmistakably familiar voice enhance funny and shrewd reflections on her ordinary girl’s life. (Apparently even stars have to attend the hell of middle school.) Moving briskly, she depicts entertaining scenes filled with dialogue, creating an array of distinct voices for those who populated her past, often ruefully recounting years-old slights with impressive detail. Self-described as a “very, very small weirdo,” the author entertains listeners with her tales of early friendships, playground battles, and discovering her calling as an actress.
