Book Summary:

It’s hard to believe that once upon a time, Johanna Porter had a dream. Those dreams would have taken her rising art career and turned it into something new and bright. Unfortunately, those dreams didn’t exactly happen. She’s just one of several unknown soccer moms in her area suffering from the impostor syndrome and worse.

However, Johanna is not content to let this slide. She’s picking up her art again, which means chasing after her artistic dreams with new fervor. She needs to do this if she ever wants to hope to be the person she once dreamed of. Her own person.

My Review:

Johanna Porter Is Not Sorry is the perfect book for anyone tackling impostor syndrome of the feeling of impossibility when chasing their dreams. While Johanna’s story may feel larger than life, the simple truth is that much of her struggles will resonate with readers. It certainly hit me hard!

If you love fictional novels with a touch of life lessons, this is the book for you. Likewise, this book is fun and quirky, unafraid to tackle real subjects in a fictional world. I enjoyed every minute of it, and I hope that we’ll see more from this author soon.
