When it arrived, I didn't want to put it down. Along the way, she shares some of her personal moments, fears, awkward encounters, joys and everything in between. A collection of humorous autobiographical essays by the Academy Award-nominated actress and star of Up in the Air and Pitch Perfect. Yup, she's a normal gal who happens to have a cool job.
