When Tina McGuff's mother brutally attacked her father, her life changed forever. As her family fell apart at the seams, the weight of caring for her siblings fell on her young shoulders. The one thing left in her life that she could control was food, and so began the biggest fight of her life. Tina's life-or-death struggle with anorexia is told with devastating honesty in her memoir Seconds to Snap, an extraordinary account of a girl at war with herself. Today Tina, from Dundee, is determined to share her story of recovery and hope, ‘an important, searingly honest book that will change lives' (Lorraine Kelly).
