I am Malala: How One Girl Stood Up for Education and Changed the World (Young Readers Edition) by Malala Yousafzai
Published September 8, 2015
“I am Malala. This is my story.”
Malala Yousafzai 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 October 9, 2012, she nearly lost her life for teh cause: She was shot point-blank while riding the bus 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 nominee. In this Young Readers Edition of her bestselling memoir, which includes excessive photos and material, we hear firsthand the remarkable story of a girl who knew from a young age that she wanted to change the world-and did.
Malala’s powerful story will open your eyes to another world and will make you believe in hope, truth, miracles, and the possibility that one person- one young person- can inspire change in her community and beyond. –Goodreads
Review by Fluffy3000
Five Stars! This book gave a great insight on terrorism and education in different cultures. It sounded like the book came from a world renowned author, not a teenager. Good job!
Why I chose this book
I chose this book because I had seen a friend read it last year, and I really wanted to read it but the school year ended before I had the chance to read the book. when I came back to school I saw it in my library, and remembering my desire to read it, I checked the book out.
I would recommend this book to people that love to read about different cultures and people that like reading true stories.
