"All I Want Is Everything" was a good book with a simple message: "Don't Give Up On Your Dreams". I enjoyed this book beyond the message due to Poole's style of writing. The book was very fast-pace, and I was able to finish it in a day. This was far from a rags-to-rich story. I loved how Poole told her story. Bottom line : Daaimah S. Poole has a long time reader over here.

I enjoyed this story of rags to riches. It was refreshing. I particularly liked the authentic characters and story line. What was really unique is that you saw the main character, Kendra, learn from her successes and failures. That is what made the book real!

very exciting, I learned what these singers have to go through and why there are some singers out there that cannot sing.

Was kinda skeptical but it really is a good novel promoting self determination, self confidence and the will/drive to succeed.

This book was ok but not really what I've expected. It lacks interest in its charater and the plot was kinda boring.
