Sorry Not Sorry : Dreams, Mistakes, and Growing Up - Naya Rivera

I Picked Up This Book Because: Curiosity… I guess.

The Story:

Naya has lived an interesting life. Not as wild and crazy as some Hollywood child stars but definitely different than your traditional upbringing. Going into this book I only knew Naya from her role as Santana Lopez on Glee. While listening to this book I discovered she’s been acting all her life. Turns out one of her first big rolls was a character I loved on the TV sitcom Family Matters. (Little Richie’s friend/girlfriend Gwendolyn)

Naya takes us through her memories as a young actress, a huge bout of teen angst including her struggles with anorexia, racial identity, an abortion and her ever evolving relationship with her mother. She also speaks briefly about two significant romantic relationships the most importantly her husband. Some of Naya memories are crushingly honest and I felt for her struggles.
