Navigating through youth and young adulthood isn't easy, and in Sorry Not Sorry, Naya Rivera shows us that we're not alone in the highs, lows, and in-betweens. Whether it's with love and dating, career and ambition, friends, or gossip, Naya inspires us to follow our own destiny and step over - or plod through - all the crap along the way.
After her rise and fall from childhood stardom on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Family Matters, barely eking her way through high school, a brief stint as a Hooters waitress, going through thick and thin with her mom/manager, and resurrecting her acting career as Santana Lopez on Glee, Naya emerged from these experiences with some key life lessons. Even with a successful career and a family that she loves more than anything else, Naya says, "There's still a 13-year-old girl inside of me making detailed lists of how I can improve, who's never sure of my own self-worth." Sorry Not Sorry is for that 13-year-old in all of us.

It was entertaining, not too long
Sorry! No.... REALLY! Sorry I wasted my credit!
I love Naya Rivera or should I say her character Santana on Glee however this book made Naya come across as pretentious, self-indulgent, spoiled, racist and over-bearing. The chapters were inconsistent and flip-flopped back and forth throughout her life and career causing most times for it to be confusing where she was going or coming from.
Although her stories didn't lack interest, it did lack intelligence with all the hashtag, side remarks, cussing, name dropping and cattiness. It's truly not a surprise that she has been remarked in the manner she has in the media, why she is now twice dumped/divorced (from serious relationship stand points) and why she isn't steadily working post Glee.
The chapter on her race and her views on it was absolutely disgusting to me, as she spoke so much of "white people" being racist with their remarks and jokes, yet consistently made racists comments throughout the entire chapter. I cannot express how absolutely sick to death I am of societies double standards!
All in all this book was nothing short of HORRIBLE! If I could receive a refund.... I WOULD!!
