Deal Announcement: HIPPIE BOY: A Girl's Story by Ingrid Ricks
I'm delighted to announce that HIPPIE BOY: A Girl's Story by Ingrid Ricks has sold to executive editor Denise Silvestro at Berkley publishing. HIPPIE BOY was originally independently published by Ingrid and recently hit the New York Times bestseller list. I first read it about a year ago and devoured it in one sitting: it's a wonderful, funny, and truly inspirational memoir in the vein of The Glass Castle.
