This is an important, searingly honest book that will change lives. Tina is one of the bravest woman I have ever met.
Tina has written a courageously honest narrative of her ordeal with anorexia. I gasped, cried, cheered and loved the author for telling her profound story. It’s a story that has needed to be told with such touching yet brutal sincerity - the reader cannot hide from it - and that’s a marvelous thing!

Thankyou Tina, for having the courage to publish Seconds to Snap, I finished it yesterday and had my first decent nights sleep for a year.
I write this through my tears as my daughter has anorexia and has been in an eating disorder unit for a year (apart from one disastrous time when she was discharged)
Although my tears flowed when I read how much Tina suffered I also take inspiration from her strength and hope that my girl will one day be free of this frightening and destructive illness
How wonderful that she became a Mother, you never know one day I might be a Grandma.
I have highlighted so many passages in the book that i intend to reread as our journey continues.
If anyone has any doubts that their child is suffering, get immediate help and advise from experts, don't wait.
