Book Trailer of the Week: A Different Kind of Daughter: The Girl Who Hid from the Taliban in Plain Sight

This week's Book Trailer highlights one of the more unusual true stories that have come out of the Middle East since all the madness started there. It is about a young woman from Pakistan by the name of Maria Toorpaki who passed herself off as a boy so that she could have some kind of a life, and in the process, became a squash champion in that mess of a country.

Maria's memoir is called "A Different Kind of Daughter: The Girl Who Hid from the Taliban in Plain Sight" and the video material is from ABC News.
