All That Really Matters-My Thoughts

About the Book
Molly McKenzie's bright personality and on-trend fashion and beauty advice have earned her an impressive social media following, as well as a big paycheck each month. When her manager-turned-boyfriend says she has an audition to appear as a host on a makeover show that nominates underprivileged youth, her dream of further fame seems to be coming true. There's just one catch: she has little experience interacting with people in need.

When her manager-boyfriend convinces her to partner with a local organization, she begins volunteering with a summer youth program. The program's director, Silas Whittaker, challenges her at every turn, but she swiftly grows more attached to the kids--and him--every day.

As Molly experiences an acceptance unlike anything she's known, she wrestles with the lies she's been believing about herself for years. She thought she knew what mattered most in life, but maybe she's had it wrong this whole time, and there's more to being truly seen than what she's built her entire life on. (Goodreads)

 My Thoughts

Anything that Nicole Deese writes is simply fantastic and if you haven’t read a book by her you really need to start.

This story was completely unexpected and an enjoyable change from the typical story lines in contemporary fiction. I did not relate to the main character Molly at all in any way but I really enjoyed reading her story. Silas was also unique and had a great personality that surprised me most of the time.

There is a lot packed into this book and I think Deese did a great job handling the many emotions and issues that came up. These pages take you on a journey and there is a lot of growth that happens few authors are able to pull off in one story.

I really enjoyed this book and even though it isn’t my all time favorite of hers it is still a fantastic read. Four Stars.


I highly recommend any book by Nicole Deese!
