To Be Someone

(2001)
A novel by

 
 
Helena Nicholls - ex world-famous pop star and prime-time DJ - wakes up in hospital to find her looks, her career and her personal life in tatters. She has been let down by her boyfriend, and the one person she loved most in the world - her best friend since the age of five - is dead. She feels that she belongs nowhere, and her sense of identity, fragile at the best of times, is in pieces.

As Helena begins the painful path to recovery, she casts her mind back over the events in her life which have brought her here. Those memories, good and bad, combined with the songs forever associated with them, are milestones on her journey. When her world is rocked by a chance meeting with an old friend, she sees glimpses of the future she could have. But if she is to have a chance at that happiness, she must first conquer her troubled past and work out what it means to be someone...
