Hippie Boy: A Girl’s Story is a fascinating memoir written about Author Ingrid Ricks' childhood - growing up poor and Mormon in the 70s/80s. As someone who also grew up in this time period, I felt an instant connection to Ingrid, even though my own childhood was completely different. Still – I immediately empathized with young Ingrid – cheering her accomplishments, crying over her heartache, and pulling for things to get better in her dysfunctional family.

Hippie Boy: A Girl’s Story was just one of those books I could not put down. Even after the book ended, I found it really stuck with me. While Ingrid does do brief updates at the end of the book to bring us up to speed – sort of a where are they now – I still wanted more. I felt as if I were now also a member of Ingrid’s family... a true testament to her writing. Bravo to Ingrid for being courageous enough to write about some very difficult memories.
