At a suburban Maryland high school during the late 1960s, a rock and roll band forms and begins to gain local attention. Founder and lead guitarist Preston, accompanied by keyboardist Neal and drummer Brad, cranks out original tunes as well as rock classics. After moving on to college and signing a management contract, the group makes the controversial decision to replace Brad with drama major Clive. As their freshman year ends, they decide to pursue a lead in England.

Tagging along on this adventure are the three girls who love them: Candy, an aspiring journalist; Hope, a wannabe model and fashion designer; and Theda, a thespian who also fancies herself a musician equal to the guys. The group moves on to further adventures at a Scottish commune, and later UCLA in California. Along the way they encounter a peace-loving guru, a flaky band manager, and a radical engineering professor, as well as love rivals for the musicians’ attention. The girls, ambitious in their own right, are determined not to be mere “handmaidens of rock.” But it is not until a vengeful Brad catches up to the band at a festival, and violence ensues, that the three must prove their worth as grown women.

Can mailing a fan letter change a life? Brenda Dunkirk didn’t think so. She also didn’t think 80s metal star Keith Kutter would have actually read her letter. Watching him stand in the rain on her patio and compose a new song is something she never imagined.

Brenda thinks she’s the luckiest woman in the world when Keith’s band, Hydra, and entourage declare her home their base camp while recording their comeback album. She fantasizes about late night lyric writing sessions at her kitchen table and being the first one to hear all the new songs. She is confident that with her help the band will get back on top where they belong. Swept up in the glamour of being the rock and roll muse, Brenda risks her already faltering marriage. Tim, her husband, walks out on her and Hydra’s chaos, and to make matters worse her boss is threatening to fire her if she doesn’t her act together at work.

The band will not leave until the album is done–it could be another month or it could be another year. Ultimately Brenda must choose between the secure contentment of her marriage or the allure of rock and roll.

She must decide: is it possible to be one man’s wife and another man’s muse?

Randall Grange has been tricked into admitting herself into a treatment center and she doesn’t know why. She’s not a party hound like the others in her therapy group—but then again, she knows she can’t live without pills or booze.

Raised by an abusive father, a detached mother, and a loving aunt and uncle, Randall both loves and hates her life. She’s awkward and a misfit. Her parents introduced her to alcohol and tranquilizers at a young age, ensuring that her teenage years would be full of bad choices, and by the time she’s twenty-three years old, she’s a full-blown drug addict, well acquainted with the miraculous power chemicals have to cure just about any problem she could possibly have—and she’s in more trouble than she’s ever known was possible.

Enlisting the help of the adorable bike store owner next door, an array of well-heeled customers, and her soon-to-be ex-husband, Searcy hatches the plan of the century to save Pie Girls.
