Hippie Boy: A Girl's StoryHippie Boy: A Girl’s Story
by Ingrid Ricks

Genre: ,

What would you do if your Mormon stepfather pinned you down and tried to cast Satan out of you? For thirteen-year-old Ingrid, the answer is simple: RUN.

For years Ingrid has begged her free-wheeling dad to let her join him on the road as a tool-selling vagabond to escape the suffocating poverty and religion at home. When her devout Mormon mother marries Earl―a homeless Vietnam vet who exploits the religion’s male-dominated culture to oppress and abuse her family―she finally gets her wish. Ingrid spends the next few summers living on the margins while hustling tools with her dad and his slimy, revolving sales crew. He becomes her lifeline and escape from Earl. But when her dad is arrested, she learns the lesson that will change her life: she can’t look to others to save her; she has to save herself.

You're so welcome. With all the wonderful books they give us to choose from, I believe it helps when someone gives a good recommendation for a book. With that being said, my favorite Pixel book so far has been "Breaking Twig" by Deborah Epperson. Enjoy!
