Overview

All I Want Is Everything by Daaimah S. Poole

Essencer bestselling author Daaimah S. Poole took readers on a wild, sexy ride with her novel Ex-Girl to the Next Girl. Now in All I Want is Everything we meet a young woman with a hot voice and superstar dreams.

Talented Sabrina DeShields always dreamed of becoming a singing sensation. At high school talent shows, she moved people to tears. Everyone thought she'd be the next Mariah Carey. But between Sabrina's father abandoning her mother, her mother's alcoholism, and a tragedy that lands Sabrina and her siblings in foster care, there's not much opportunity for making dreams come true. Before Sabrina knows it, she's twenty-five-years-old, working as a bartender, and trapped in a relationship of convenience. She knows something's gotta give...

Determined to break into the industry, Sabrina takes her small savings and makes a demo. Her gift and personality soon get her a manager, a series of gigs, and finally a recording contract-plus a check fat enough to move her family into a house, and then some. But when a turn of events lands her right back where she started from, she'll have to make a choice: sink back into obscurity-or discover what she's really made of...

'All I want is Everything' is the second novel that I have read by Essence bestselling author: Daaimah S. Poole. In this novel, the main protagonist, Kendra Thomas , has dreams of pursuing a singing career. On her quest to becoming an R&B megastar, Kendra faces hardships and difficulties throughout her professional and personal life, that both frustrate and discourage her. However, due to her diligence, dedication, and supportive relatives, she eventually goes on to become one of the most successful R&B singers in the music industry. I have immensely enjoyed reading Ms. Pooles' novel. This story conveys that dreams really can materalize. Thank you Ms. Poole for an amazing novel.

It took me a little while to get into this book. There were a lot of unfortunate events that took place in the beginning of the story so I didn't fully understand the title but once things took off about midway I started to enjoy it.

THIS WAS AN ENJOYABLE READ. KENDRA MICHELLE THOMAS HAS A LIFE LONG DREAM OF BECOMING A FAMOUS SINGER. WHEN SHE SETS OUT TO MAKE HER DREAM COME TRUE, SHE IS FACED WITH MANY OBSTACLES THAT SHE MUST OVERCOME. WHEN IT FINALLY LOOKS LIKE KENDRA WILL NOT BE MAKING AN ALBUM, SHE STARTS TO SEE THE UGLY SIDE OF THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY. KENDRA TRIES TO SLEEP HER WAY TO THE TOP. BUT WHEN THAT DOESN"T WORK SHE GIVES UP AND THEN TRIES AGAIN, THIS TIME DOING EVERYTHING STRICTLY BY THE BOOK. AND IT PAYS OFF FOR HER BIG TIME. I LOVE THE RELATIONSHIP THAT KENDRA HAS WITH HER MOTHER, VERY TOUCHING. I TOTALLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.
