Welcome to Must-Get Monday, a blog series where every Monday I’ll showcase a novel that has just released or is releasing soon that I cannot wait to read.
This week I am featuring:
All That Really Matters
by Nicole Deese
I haven’t read a Nicole Deese novel in quite some time and that makes me sad. Life has gotten in the way and I really haven’t been able to read all the books I want. I’m hoping to change that this year and get a couple of Deese’s latest novels read. I really do love her writing. Her stories are always so engaging, and I’m sure All That Really Matters will be no exception. And, isn’t the cover so pretty? I love it. It makes me happy!
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.
