"Love, Lunch and a BOGO Sale"

When Rasha finds out that her agent is dumping her “Women’s History of Afghanistan” book in favor of something more “chick lit”, her girlfriends come up with a radical solution.
 

"TrueLoveAlwaysForever.com"

Rasha enters the world of heterosexual dating, surprised to discover that in spite of the fact that she’s gay (or perhaps because she is)… she seems to be every straight man’s fantasy.

"When Aloe Vera Isn't Enough"

Things get complicated when Rasha’s fiancée, Liz, discovers evidence of Rasha’s journey into the Cosmo-drinking, heel-wearing world of chick-lit.

"Boys, Burqas and Bunions"

With some skillful maneuvering, Rasha manages to get herself to Afghanistan with one of her man-dates—her colloquial “Big”—in tow. Meanwhile Liz suspects that Rasha is not being totally honest with her.

"Covering Your Ass: Afghan Style!"

“Big” befriends a notorious Taliban leader, which inadvertently allows Rasha to gain access to a valuable source of research. Havoc ensues. Burqas fly.

"A Girl's Guide to Covering Warzones"

Rasha shares the results of her journey into the “straight-world” with her girlfriends.
