Publisher's Summary

I Am Malala is the memoir of a remarkable teenage girl who risked her life for the right to go to school. Raised in a changing Pakistan by an enlightened father from a poor background and a beautiful, illiterate mother from a political family, Malala was taught to stand up for what she believes. I Am Malala tells her story of bravery and determination in the face of extremism, detailing the daily challenges of growing up in a world transformed by terror.

This should be required reading in schools

what an amazing story, this is this generations Night or Farewell to Manzanar or Diary of Anne Frank even. It really helps you understand what they are going through and is also an amazing example of courage and character for kids to stand up for what is right and what they are passionate about. It also shows an wonderful example of what a family can be for each other, for their community and for the world.
