Try holding her in different positions. Start out on the side she doesn't like that way she's good and hungry and more likely to nurse from that side. When trying to get her to latch on squeeze your breast to express a little milk so she tastes it right away. Hope this helps :)

Sounds like good advice above - start on the 'less desirable' side.  Stay calm and keep trying!
