This book was exactly what I needed when I needed it. It was there for me when I felt alone. It gave me hope when I thought all hope was lost. So raw, honest, and inspiring. More books like this need to be written and shared. Thank you, Tina. -- Haven Marah * Model *
Mother, Grandmother, and speaker sharing the lessons she has passed on to her daughters around working hard, spreading kindness, and finding your own positivity, confidence, and beauty - I read Tina McGuff's survival story with awe. She is truly a war-survivor. A veteran in the battle against mental illness in the form of anorexia. Like many of us, her feud takes place on the battlefield of her mind against an invisible enemy who strikes with words of inadequacy, failure, and fear. In a time where we are all struggling to understand mental illness, McGuff's courageous and candid story speaks to what it is like to face down an enemy that lurks in the hidden places of your mind and destroys you from within. This timely and important story is universal. For who among us has not heard an inner-voice whisper "You're not good enough" and wondered if it wasn't true? -- Linda Graham * . *
What is exceptional about this book is that it's not only a heartwarming true story and a gripping read, but that it manages to be both while providing hope for so many by helping us understand so much about the psychology of this terrible disease. -- Gary Clark * Musician *

Congrats again. -- Dom Holland * Comedian, Author and Broadcaster *
