Jenny Nordberg, "The Underground Girls of Kabul"

Engaging account of "bacha posh" in Afghanistan -- where girls are made into honorary boys -- along with a woman member of Parliament whose "son" is how the author first learns about the practice. Told thru various vignettes with context, leaving things with an unclear future.
