I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up For Education And Was Shot By The Taliban is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
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 MALALAis 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 MALALAwill make you believe in the power of one person''s voice to inspire change in the world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Her Journey & Struggles have brought me to tears ... Malala; what an inspirational young woman. Her journey & struggles have brought me to tears. Such a strong, confident and courageous girl. She fights for the right to an education, which so many take for granted. Subject to a heinous attack by the Taliban, she miraculously survives, and is able to tell her story while the world listens. I admire Malala's passion and determination as she continues her fight for the basic right of an education for all children across the globe. I am so very fortunate to have been born into a country of social equality, freedom of thought and most important: where education is the birthright of every child.
