Hippie Boy is a slice-of-life memoir about Ingrid Rick’s fragmented, poverty-ridden, incendiary life as a teenager.
It’s a life with four siblings; a devout Mormon mother (originally from Austria) who gives her power away to men; a perpetually on-the-road father who sells cheaply made tools and whose main passion is to build a million-dollar business; and a stepfather who eats only meat, smells foul, and in Ingrid’s words is a “psycho religious fake.”
And escape she does. But, like the lives of most of us, there is no fairy godmother waving her magic wand. Her freedom comes through hard work, resilience, luck, and an occasional helping hand.
