"Riveting.... It is difficult to imagine a chronicle of a
war more moving, apart from perhaps the diary of Anne Frank."
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. In October 2012, when she was 15,
Malala almost paid the ultimate price. She was shot in the head
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 16, she became a
global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest nominee ever for
the Nobel Peace Prize.
Hailed by the Associated Press for its "arresting detail," I AM
MALALA will make readers believe in the power of one person''s
voice to inspire change in the world.
