Publisher's Summary

In 2009 Malala Yousafzai began writing a blog on BBC Urdu about life in the Swat Valley as the Taliban gained control, at times banning girls from attending school. When her identity was discovered, Malala began to appear in both Pakistani and international media, advocating the freedom to pursue education for all.
In October 2012, gunmen boarded Malala's school bus and shot her in the face, a bullet passing through her head and into her shoulder. Remarkably, Malala survived the shooting. At a very young age, Malala Yousafzai has become a worldwide symbol of courage and hope. Her shooting has sparked a wave of solidarity across Pakistan, not to mention globally, for the right to education, freedom from terror and female emancipation.
I Am Malala, the memoir of Malala Yousafzai, will shed insight into the lives of those children who cannot attend school, will tell the inspiring story of a schoolgirl faced the Taliban with courage and bravery. Read by Archie Panjabi, with a prologue read by Malala Yousafzai.

Critic Reviews

"Narrator Archie Panjabi is an excellent choice to deliver this memoir of the Pakistani girl who stood up to the Taliban. Her voice is youthful, lilting, and buoyant, invoking the key qualities of the now well-known young woman who, at the age of 15, was shot three times in the face by the Taliban because she actively advocated education for girls. Panjabi narrates with vigor; rapid sentences and warm tones evoke Malala's persona. The listener has the feeling of being told this story by Malala herself rather than by an actor, which is the best type of audiobook. Those who want to hear more about Afghanistan, Pakistan's Swat Valley, or the family behind this courageous young person will not be disappointed." (AudioFile)

An amazing true life wonder

Where does I Am Malala rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Malala ranks amongst the highest in the books I have listened to. I had the book on my wish list for some time but was reluctant to listen to it. There had been so much media press about this very wonderfully brave, outspoken child, I thought there would be nothing else to learn. How wrong could I have been.<br/> <br/>The book begins with her describing the life she had as a young child in a very loving and supportive family, the idyllic valley which became part of her being and why she so loved it. <br/><br/>She speaks openly about the struggles her parents faced in opening up a school for girls and boys. Her competitive spirit at school and her determination to get every child girl or boy educated, How her family fed the poor and introduces us to how wonderful the Koran. How it does not preach hatred and discourse but peace, love and kindness. She introduces us to some of their traditions and the close family bond the people of her valley have.<br/><br/>As a westerner who's so used to a lone, independent and broken society I thought very differently. As the book continued I began to question what we'd been taught though the media and about the lives we lead though out the world.<br/><br/>She shows us all her strength of character, hopes and dreams for the future. <br/><br/>This is a book everyone should read. May her dreams come true. <br/>

What other book might you compare I Am Malala to, and why?

Hotel Rwanda, Ann Frank,

Have you listened to any of Malala Yousafzai and Archie Panjabi ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Not yet.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A must watch film. A girl with the strength to show us hope, love, as well as immense bravery and courage.
