It had been a long time since another person treated me with love, respect and graciousness. More importantly, it had been a long time since someone treated me as if I was somebody. The two-year journey that led me to my decision had reached its peak. Something had to go-even if it was me.
Left to fend for herself, Nikki is starved of affection from her mother and the little attention she does receive often results in bruises. Feeling worthless and rejected, Nikki is determined to break free and find life outside of her painful circumstances.
At only fourteen years old she boldly decides to embark on a journey to find her father, a missing piece to the puzzle of her life, but along the way she unravels more pain and layers of family abuse, causing her to want to give up.
But she won't give up. Not yet. Not Nikki. Not until she finds what she's looking for. But, will Nikki find the love she desperately needs?

Little Miss Somebody was a good book. The characters were some in which I was able to follow through with them and not feel at all lost with what was being talked about. Just like the title suggests this book is one in which Little Miss Somebody just wants to be known.
Nikki having been left to fend for herself, sets off to find her father and just wants to be treated like somebody again. This book opened my eyes to a world which does exist around us and shows that everyone should be treated like they are worth it to someone else and not invisible.
I have to give credit that I don’t normally go for books like this but a wonderful job was done by Christy Abram in hitting the hard stuff and managed to make me feel things I don’t normally feel. Abuse, love, hope and everything else that could have went into a book to bring out all the emotions was done with right here.
If you want a book to make you feel and go on a journey of discovery and to be exposed to the harsh reality of the world around us then Little Miss Somebody is the book for you.
