Description

Peace, Love, and a Dead Hippie Chick follows the intertwining journeys of three young women in the mid-1990s who go on the road and off the grid, and leave their worlds behind. Each woman falls into a dangerous subculture of sex, drugs, and rock and roll in an attempt to attain her own sense of peace, love, and freedom. KARA, a middle-class Midwestern girl, flees her painful past after a tragic accident claims a loved one, only to learn-after a violent attack-that there's no safety among friends or strangers. Survival rests in her hands alone as she escapes into the wilderness of New Mexico. NATASHA, born into privilege, rebels against her family's expectations as she follows the Grateful Dead concert tour circuit, selling contraband and exploring her sexual freedom. AMY, an impoverished Southern belle, becomes love-struck when an exotic drifter passes through town, deciding to leave home and follow him. This intricately interwoven coming-of-age tale delves into the connection between strangers and the premise that the grand orchestration of life goes well beyond chance.show more
