Welcome to First Line Friday!
Today I’m featuring
All That Really Matters by Nicole Deese.
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.
Now it’s your turn. Pull out the book beside you and tell us the first line.

Loved Nicole’s book!
My first line for July 2 is from The Chase by Lisa Harris:
Madison James burned through the final sixty seconds of her workout on the stationary bike, then released a slow breath.
I can’t wait to read The Chase! Hope you enjoy it!
I enjoyed this book!
My first line is “No sooner did the last notes of the closing hymn, “Precious Name,” fade after the Sunday service than Emma Draycott allowed Stephen to pull her behind the Methodist church building.” It’s from The Scarlet Pen by Jennifer Uhlarik.
I’ve been seeing this book around, I hope you’re enjoying it! Happy reading!
