Tina Truax is a free-spirited, sassy, independent woman who battles convention at every turn. In Girl on the Right: Memoir of a Life Upside Down, Tina provides a thoughtful, intelligent expose of her many attempts at fitting in, and behaving according to society’s unattainable standards. A mental breakdown at thirty-four prompts her to take a closer look at where she’s been, and her path forward. Ultimately, Tina chooses to throw expectation to the curb and live a life of authenticity and truth.
Inspired by the popular social media meme encouraging women to “be the girl on the right,” Tina enthusiastically joins this call to action by sharing her thirty-plus years of life’s misadventures. From her experiences as a recovering church lady, wife, mother, friend, fat girl, and childhood sexual abuse survivor, she opens her memory box and recounts her darkest moments, unexpected joys, and her ultimate journey to healing and self-acceptance.
As a champion and mentor of women, Tina provides readers with an inspiring “rise above” message, proving that she is a true “Girl on the Right.”
