4.8 out of 5 rating. 15 Reviews
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 survive.

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.

On October 9 2012 a beautiful young Pakistani girl, who loved nothing more than to go to school and learn, was shot in the face at close range by a Taliban assassin. The world was shocked at this monstrous attempt to silence an outspoken advocate for girls’ rights. Her name is Malala Yousafzai. I am Malala is an extraordinary story of bravery, passion, and determination – told in Malala’s own words. It’s an authentic portrait of a young woman who, with equal measures of boldness, reserve, and humility fully intends to change the world. It is also the story of her people and her country. And it filled me with both admiration and outrage. I Am Malala is more than a book. It’s a defiant declaration by a heroic young woman who will never stop fighting.
