Hippie Chick offers a first-hand view into an historic time period of a social and sexual revolution. With candor, insight and humor, Ilene shares intimate details of her journey through those years of her critical maturation. But even more than a window into the life of San Francisco’s counterculture, English pays tribute to the critical importance of caring mentors during the process of growth from adolescence to adulthood. That, I believe, is the true essence of her narrative and of great value in any generation. Enjoy joining her on the journey she shares.”
