    One thought on “What Matters Most”

    1. I am so glad my new library has this book and that I'm able to read it and thus complete the entire series. I didn't like the Maya books nearly as much as the others in the series, but still a good read.

    2. What is normal? Was my upbringing, my life normal? How do we know what normal is? These were questions I asked myself as I read Melody Carlson's book, "What Matters Most". I was disappointed to find out that this was the 6th book in this series and I had not read numbers one through five. Melody Carlson was a new author to me. To that end I must now get books one through five so I can catch up. This book was a great and easy read and although it was part of a series it worked well as a stand alo [...]

    3. Maya’s Green Tip for the Day: Recycled fashion is one of the most fun ways to go green. A pair of jeans could be transformed into a denim skirt. A sweater into a vest. A bunch of old ties into a dress. A blanket into a poncho. Accessorize it in new way–with beads, buttons, appliqués, buckles, stencils, or ribbons…your imagination is only the limit. (65 words)Sixteen-year-old Maya Stark has a lot to sort through. She could graduate from high school early if she wants to. She’s considerin [...]

    4. Maya, is living with her uncle going to school and HOPING and praying that her mom does not get out of prison. WOW! That is a lot for a sixteen year old girl to absorb. However Maya has never had an easy life. Her dad, who is a professional musician and on the road all the time, and her mom has a drinking and drug habit. Her parents, now divorced have been bankrupted by her mom's habit, she has stolen from her daughter and now is in prison. No Maya has not lived the life of a normal teenager. Wh [...]

    5. "What Matters Most" is the latest and last in Melody Carlson's Diary of a Teenage Girl series. It is book 16 I believe though the series follows four different girls and all of them show up in this book. I think the concept is great, we read the whole book through the eyes of Maya's diary which is actually kind of fun, with the exception that I don't know anyone that is THAT detailed when they write in their diary! I mean, goodness, she writes entire conversations down word for word :-) Maya is [...]

    6. What Matters Most by Melody Carlson is the third book in the Maya line and the final book in the Diary of a Teenage Girl series. Maya Stark is finally starting to have a normal life. She's started high school and is making friends, but her mother's release from jail threatens her peace of mind. And the possibility of touring with Christian girl rock group, Redemption makes normal life seem not so appealing. She'll have to make some major decisions for a sixteen-year old girl, as well as deal wit [...]

    7. Maya is trying to figure out what matters most in life. Should she graduate early? Date the boy she likes even though she knows it’s a bad idea? Join a rock band and go on the road? Then her mom shows up and threatens everything Maya has worked so hard for. How should a Christian act toward a parent like her mom? Should Maya let her mom ruin her life again? Should she stand up to her?I really enjoyed this series. Maya is a neat character. She’s very independent and hard-working. She always t [...]

    8. Like most sixteen year olds, Maya Stark has a life full of roller coaster emotions and drama.Maya finds herself the victim of bullying at the hands of popular cheerleader Vanessa Hartman, who is jealous because her boyfriend Wyatt is attracted to Maya. To counteract Vanessa’s “mean girl” behavior, Maya’s friends suggest that she start dating her ex-boyfriend Dominic, who she is still friends with.Add to this emotionally exhausting mix a brain damaged hospitalized friend, a mother who’s [...]

    9. I love the Diary of a Teenage Girl series! With well-written, poignant and inspiring stories and a cast of beautiful, relatable and real characters these are definitely life-touching books. To be honest, I’m sad its over. What Matters Most is the final installment in the gorgeously crafted DOATG series. I was crying and declaring “amen!” at the end of not only What Matters Most but throughout every book.My Rating: 5 out 5 A full rating, for truth, reality, God, and all around awesomeness.M [...]

    10. I hated the ending. It absolutely sucked. Like, it's worse than the Catching Fire ending. No joke.Okay, so maybe I'm being a little dramatic saying its worse than the one of the Hunger Games sequel, but it was pretty bad.

    11. This book was a great finish to Maya's story - it's open ended because that's real life but things to finally seem to be going her way =) I thought the green tips were better in Book 2 but still helpful. Also loved that the songs used were real songs that I listened to after finishing the book =)

    12. This was a very good ending to a great series. I am so bummed that Melody Carlson won't be continuing the DOATG series, as it was what got me hooked on her in the first place.It seemed to end rather abruptly, though. If I hadn't read this was the last, I wouldn't have thought it was.

    13. I really loved this book. It was a page turner. I think that Maya is such a great strong character and I could relate to her in some places.
