Hippie Chick: Coming of Age in the '60s
Ilene English, author
Hippie Chick is about a rebellious teenager who finds her mother dead in the bathroom. Living alone with a difficult father, her sister sends her a one-way plane ticket to leave New Jersey. \tLanding in San Francisco, she is thrust into a lifestyle way beyond what she is ready for, and that challenges all previous notions of how one behaves. It is 1963, and we are brought along as she becomes completely immersed in the unfolding of the Sixties during the earliest days of sexual freedom, psychedelic drugs, the jazz scene, and rock n’ roll.
