I Am Malala: How One Girl Stood Up for Education and Changed the World

Malala Yousafzai, Patricia McCormick

Written by Malala for her peers, this is the girl behind the Nobel Prize-winning icon.

Malala is the most significant teenager of the twenty first century. She was only ten years old when the Taliban took control of her region. They said music was a crime. They said women weren’t allowed to go to the market. They said girls couldn’t go to school.

Raised in a once-peaceful area of Pakistan transformed by terrorism, Malala was taught to stand up for what she believes. So she fought for her right to be educated. And on 9 October, 2012, she nearly lost her life for the cause. She was shot point-blank on her way home from school. No one expected her to survive. Now she is an international symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize winner. This is the remarkable story of a girl who knew from a young age that she wanted to change the world-and did.

It will open your eyes to another world and will make you believe in hope, truth, miracles, and the determination of one person to inspire change.

‘It’s a searing and personal portrait of a young woman who dared to make a difference’ PW
