Malala Yousafzai may be the most famous girl in the world right now. Shot by the Taliban and celebrated as a peace icon, this past fall she became the youngest person ever nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. This book is a letter of sisterhood to Malala Yousafzai, expressing the belief that every girl has the right to go to school. The beautiful photos from international non-profit Plan bring together their Because I am a Girl message with Malala Yousafzai''s mission. After being shot for the simple act of going to school in her native Pakistan, Malala has become an international girls'' rights crusader. The book is written as a letter from girls around the world to Malala. Many of them know first-hand the barriers that stand in the way of girls going to school - barriers such as poverty, discrimination, and violence. In Malala these girls recognize a leader, a champion, and a friend.
A brief but moving manifesto that will spark both sympathy and heightened awareness of an endemic global outrage.
