I am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban by Malala Yousafzai
From the Winner of the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize
When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley, one girl fought for her right to an education. On Tuesday, 9 October 2012, she almost paid the ultimate price when she was shot in the head at point-blank range.
Malala Yousafzai's extraordinary journey has taken her from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations. She has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and is the youngest ever winner of the Nobel Peace Prize.
I Am Malala will make you believe in the power of one person's voice to inspire change in the world.
'Moving and illuminating.' - Catherine Bennett, The Observer
'Not only powerful, but also very instructive about the recent history of Pakistan and the pressures of everyday life there. One finishes the book full of admiration both for Malala, and for her father, who has clearly inspired her.' - The Sunday Times
'One of the more moving details in I Am Malala is that her mother was due to start learning to read and write on the day Malala was shot - 9 October 2012.' - Kamila Shamsie, The Guardian
'Her story is astonishing.' - Owen Bennett-Jones, The Spectator
