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.
I will admit that I was skeptical of this book with it’s main character being a fashion vlogger. But my skepticism quickly vanished with the very first chapter of Nicole Deese’s All That Really Matters. The characters are well developed, relatable and likable. The storyline is one I have never read before and always kept me engaged – even to the point of staying up late into the night just to see what happened next. Deese has a beautiful way of weaving faith throughout the story and you simply cannot help but be moved by it. All That Really Matters will be one that I recommend over and over! Buy Now: Bookshop.org
