“Reviewed By Jack Magnus for Readers’ Favorite

gotr-book-cover-finalGirl on the Right: Memoir of a Life Upside Down is an autobiography written by Tina Truax. The author knew she was not the brightest, most wonderful child in the world. Her father had made sure she realized those facts, first in the way he spoke to her, and later, in her eyes at least, by his desertion of her when she was very young. But she also knew she had something special — a gift with words; she could create worlds with her words, and she could eloquently communicate her vision to others. Truax was a survivor of sexual abuse, beginning from when she was only four years old, and she had had to carry those experiences with her as she was growing up. She also learned that her volatile mind swings and ability to swiftly change focus were, in part, the result of her having bipolar disorder. This book, which frankly and fearlessly shares her earliest memories as well as her current life, had its genesis in her response to a poster that showed one non-conforming little girl at a ballet barre, who was steadfastly to the right of the other four girls. She immediately related to that simple, yet elegant, oppositional stance and decided to share her own story.

Tina Truax’s autobiography, Girl on the Right: Memoir of a Life Upside Down, is a well-written and engaging account of the author’s life, and her acceptance of the fact that, no, she was not like everyone else. I had a marvelous time getting to know Truax and empathized with her early efforts to conform and do the right things. Truax is a survivor, having overcome multiple traumas, each of which might have felled hardier souls, and her ability to get past them and recount them is impressive indeed. There’s a lot in this memoir — discussions of weight and body image issues, the pros and cons of organized religion, and how confidence, self-esteem, generosity and courage can all be gained, no matter how far along life’s path one might be. Truax’s story is bold and inspiring, and her lively presentation keeps the reader wanting to read more. Girl on the Right: Memoir of a Life Upside Down is most highly recommended.”
