"Colorful, suspenseful, funny… witty and insightful." —Publishers Weekly (starred) "Terrifically readable, and rich in personal stories." —Kirkus Reviews
"Deborah Rodriguez went to Afghanistan to transform her own life and ended up revolutionizing the lives of many of her Afghan sisters. This book made me feel like I was right there in the beauty salon, sharing in the tears and laughter as, outside my door, an entire country changed. Kabul Beauty School is inspiring, exciting, and not to be missed."
