I am Malala: The Story of the Girl Who Stood Up for Education - pdf
I am Malala, the girl who stood up for education and was shot by the Taliban. Written by Malala Yousafzai with Christina Lamb, London, Weidenfeld and Nicholson Publisher, 2013, p. 276
"I come from a country that was set up in the middle of the night. When I almost died it was just after midday."
When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, a girl spoke. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to education.
On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, when she was 15, she almost paid the final price. She was shot in the head at close range while riding the bus home from school, and few expected her to survive.
Instead, Malala's miraculous recovery took her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York. At the age of 16, she became a global icon of peaceful protest and the youngest ever nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Anna Malala is a wonderful story about a family uprooted by global terrorism, about the struggle to educate girls, about a father, himself a school owner, who defended his daughter and encouraged her to write and go to school, and about brave parents who have fierce love for their daughter in a society that honors sons .
.I, Malala, will make you believe in the power of one person's voice to inspire change in the world.
