Using the request format that made her radio show so popular, where listeners rang in with detailed stories about why certain songs were so meaningful for them, she sets out the story of her own life, chapter by chapter, track by track. Thinking about the songs that represent important chapters in her own life, Helena begins to come to terms with her past. But the present is more of a problem as, while in hospital, she has re-met an old friend to whom she is still hugely attracted. Her strict adherence to The Plan, however, means that time is not on her side. If she is to have a future at all, she must work out what it really means To Be Someone.
With its wry, appealing narrative voice, and its insider's take on the world of pop music, To Be Someone is a stunningly mature first novel which swings with wide smoothness between past and present, child and adulthood, joy and tragedy, love, loss and the meaning of true friendship.

I was lucky enough to get a free copy of the audible book and wow what a treat! It accompanied me on commutes to and from work, train and car and I was instantly grabbed by the story, the narrator and the characters in the book. Engrossing, captivating and heartfelt, what a fantastic book. I will definately look out for more by Louise Voss.
