When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one
girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought
for her right to an education.
On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, when she was fifteen, she almost paid
the ultimate price. She was shot in the head at point-blank range
while riding the bus home from school, and few expected her to
Instead, Malala's miraculous recovery has taken her on an
extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to
the halls of the United Nations in New York. At sixteen, she has
become a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest nominee
ever for the Nobel Peace Prize.
I AM MALALA is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by
global terrorism, of the fight for girls' education, of a father
who, himself a school owner, championed and encouraged his daughter
to write and attend school, and of brave parents who have a fierce
love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons.
I AM MALALA will make you believe in the power of one
person's voice to inspire change in the world.
