    Paperback Description:

    Essence 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 Kendra Michelle Thomas 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 Kendra’s father abandoning her mother, her mother’s alcoholism, and a tragedy that lands Kendra and her siblings in foster care, there’s not much opportunity for making dreams come true. Before Kendra 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, Kendra 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 …
