ABOUT THE BOOK
“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 twoyear 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?

FOR RELEASE IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Little Miss Somebody: Childhood Trauma Survivor Helps Women Heal With Her New Novel
TACOMA, WASHINGTON, APRIL 2015-This week sees the eagerly-awaited launch of Little Miss
Somebody, the heartbreaking but ultimately empowering first novel in a new series by author Christy Lynn
Abram.
Little Miss Somebody is, at its heart, a story about the deep wounds that exist in families and how those
wounds, if they are not healed, can continue to cause pain that is passed down through the generations. The
central character is fourteen-year-old Nikki, who is forced to leave the world she knows when her feckless,
alcoholic mother moves them on impulse to Saint Louis, Missouri. Isolated, Nikki is completely at the
mercy of her mother who abuses her daughter both physically and mentally and abandons Nikki for days
at a time. Feeling more than ever like the worthless, unlovable burden her mother tells her she is, Nikki
decides it is time to take matters into her own hands and sets off on a journey to find her estranged father
and, she hopes, the love she desperately needs.
Little Miss Somebody is based on the childhood experiences of author Christy Lynn Abram, who struggled
with the fallout of her trauma for many years before she discovered the benefits of holistic healing. Now a
trained holistic healer in eight healing modalities, Christy draws on her childhood experiences—as well as
the fifteen-year struggle with PTSD and depression that followed—to help others release their pain and to
claim the power within them to heal their lives. With that goal, she teaches Reiki and Chakra wellness to
decrease anxiety and PTSD and is the creator of Loving Touch Therapy, as well as being a Certified Peer
Counselor in Tacoma, Washington, where she works with trauma survivors who are transitioning towards
recovery.
She says: “My mission is to empower young women to find the greatness that lives within them no matter
who tries to tear them down. When we tell our story, it gives us a chance to mend our broken pieces, to
release our pain and discover our best selves.” She added that while delving into the past was a painful
experience for her, she feels that it is essential to do so as her story can give other women the courage to
begin their own healing journey: “Although it hurt to relive the trauma I have experienced in my life, I
would do it again if it meant I can inspire one woman to speak her truth.”
Today, Christy lives in Tacoma, Washington with her three children. Before Little Miss Somebody, she
authored two non-fiction books, Women and Business (2009, currently out of print) and Chakra Wellness
(2014). A popular speaker, she is also the founder of Love Yourself Healthy—which guides women on the
path to finding their personal power and increasing it, through self-love, and healing sisterhood.
Christy’s other activities include her Tacoma-based writing workshop, “GirlSpeak™”, which she will be
piloting at Mount Tahoma High School this year. You can find her on Facebook and Twitter
@WholisticMuse as well as by visiting her website, www.christylynnabram.com
