Kabul Beauty School: An American Woman Goes Behind the Veil by Deborah Rodriguez

Recommended by Beth in Youth Services…

Beth’s synopsis:
An American hairdresser travels to Afghanistan as part of a humanitarian aid organization and decides to start a beauty school for women. She must deal with funding issues, language barriers, and cultural customs that are different from what she is used to in America.

She says:
This book gives you a moving look into the experiences of many women that the author meets in Afghanistan. It is also inspiring to read what one woman can do to help out people in need.
