In her debut memoir, [She Writes Press, September 24, 2019], English shares her deeply personal story about a 'nice Jewish girl', who at sixteen was thrust by the death of her mother into a lifestyle way beyond what she was ready for and that challenged all previous notions of how one behaves. Leaving New Jersey behind forever, she flies to San Francisco, a graduation gift from her big sister. 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, jazz, and rock n’ roll. Hippie Chick is her discovery about herself and life, and her journey to become who she is today.
