BLOG TOUR & #GIVEAWAY - Little Miss Somebody by Christy Lynn Abram

Book & Author Details:

Little Miss Somebody by Christy Lynn Abram
Publication date: July 1st 2015
Genres: Contemporary, Young Adult


Based on a true story

Fourteen-year-old Nikki is forced to leave her whole world behind when her mother makes an impulsive move to Missouri. Once in the heart of Saint Louis, her mother begins a vicious cycle of abuse and abandonment, leaving Nikki to fend for herself at her grandmother’s house, amidst her mother’s drug addicted siblings.

Humiliated, lacking resources, and feeling more than ever like a burden, Nikki decides to take matters into her own hands—when she embarks on a journey to find her father, a missing piece to the puzzle of her life. 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?




I had seen sex scenes on TV, but they always seemed to be in love. There was always a lot of hugging and kissing. This was different; scary, even.
Instead of getting up and running, I decided to hold my breath and ready my body for the pain. It didn’t take long.
André painstakingly attempted to put himself inside of me. Meechie was right: It hurt—bad. My first instinct was to push him off of me.
“Stop! It hurts!”
“Hold on, I’m trying get it in you.”
“Ouch, ouch, please stop!”
André paused, “Wait. You’re a virgin?”
I breathed, “Yes.”
André stopped. “Why didn’t you tell me?”
“I didn’t think you would want to talk to me again.”
Before André had a chance to respond, I heard the door open and saw a shadowy figure enter the room.
“Nah, man, get out.”
“Nigga, let me get some.”
“Nah, man, not this one! Close the door!” He closed the door loudly.
André returned his attention to me. “Do you want me to stop?”
“No.” I figured we had already started—why stop now?
“I’ll go slow, okay? If it hurts too much I’ll stop.”
André did his best to be gentle. He kissed my cheek and inquired if I was okay. I wanted to cry, but I held it in. I liked André, but in a way I felt robbed. I always thought that my first time would be on a nice bed, covered with roses, with the man of my dreams. Not on a stained mattress. I wanted the experience to be over. Scratch that…I wished it never started. After we finished, André took off the condom, wrapped it in its packaging and helped me to my feet. As I got dressed, he helped me find my shoes in the dark room and made sure I had all of my belongings before we headed down the steps and out the door.
Once outside, I prepared to say goodbye and head back to Lawrence’s house alone. André surprised me.

“Can I walk you home?”

After enduring years of trauma and struggling with depression and PTSD, Christy Lynn Abram embarked on a journey to self-healing using holistic wellness as her guide. Now, as an Expressive Writing Coach and author, she teaches others how to love themselves healthy.

Christy is trained in eight healing modalities, including: a Reiki master, EFT practitioner, reflexologist, massage therapist, and a crystal healer, all of which aided in her discovery of how to heal herself naturally. These life-changing skills also served as the foundation to enhancing her gift as an intuitive healer. She has been recognized for her knowledge of the chakra system (by best-selling author of the Chakra Bible, Patricia Mercier), gemstone healing, and energy medicine. She also contributes to several online publications on the subject of holistic healing and offers individual coaching, e-courses, and workshops all designed to assist and encourage others on their journey toward a better, fuller life. Christy also loves to use her gift of writing to help others.

In her book Chakra Wellness: 7 Ways to Renew the Total she dives into the seven chakra centers from a mind-body-soul perspective. Readers learn how to discern key issues, heal imbalances, and maintain energetic barriers to eliminate stress and increase their overall well-being.

In her emotional novel, Little Miss Somebody, Christy wears her heart on her sleeve and delivers a poignant tale of love and sacrifice. Based on a true story, Little Miss Somebody will be released in July 2015.
