book pick: kabul beauty school.

Kabul Beauty School.
{via Barnes & Noble}.

I just finished reading this amazing book about Deborah Rodriguez, a hairdresser/mom from Michigan who opened a beauty school in Afghanistan after the fall of the Taliban. It’s an amazing story. Rodriguez is gutsy, brave, & selfless, putting the needs of the Afghan women above all else. Definitely worth picking up.
