While riffing through some books that I own but still haven’t gotten to pick up yet, I came upon Nicole Binder’s "I Am Somebody". From the very beginning of the book, I was already intrigued and captivated. I'm sure there are many that would agree with me especially those who have experienced what the book was all about. While it’s not my usual reading material, I found myself hooked and it definitely aroused my curiosity.
The book shows how events formed the life of a young girl. This is the story of her struggles with molestation, rape, and addictions and how she managed to survive them all. This is an amazing journey through a very difficult early lifetime. This book transports the reader from experience to experience. I can assure you that you will have a tough time putting it down.
It took courage to write such a revealing book. Binder is a fab scene-setter. I felt like I was pacing through the pages of the book into wherever she was taking me. It was a breeze to get adrift in the scenes and it made me yearn to keep turning the pages until the end. I feel privileged to have learned from in this book. This book is not just for those that were victims of abuse and addictions. It really has something for everyone. I definitely recommend this book.
