Beauty Shop for Rent…Fully Equipped, Inquire Within by Laura Bowers tells the heartwarming story of a young teenage girl who was abandoned by her mother, but taken in by her great-grandmother, Granny Po. When Granny Po rents her salon to a young woman who turns it into a charming day spa, and Abbey's mother suddenly reappears in her life, Abbey find herself confronted with the hurts, fears, and lies from being abandoned by her mother. In the words of author Cynthia Leitich Smith, Beauty Shop for Rent "is a down-home, whole-heart story…about the wrong dream, the right guy, righteous gossip, and the power of a good spa treatment."
