Publisher Description

The bestselling memoir by Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai.

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 the cause: She was shot point-blank while riding the bus on her way home from school.

No one expected her to survive.

Now Malala is an international symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner. In this Young Readers Edition of her bestselling memoir, which has been reimagined specifically for a younger audience and includes exclusive 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.

imbeciIe ,

so far so good!

i used to be a huge book reader but more recently i’ve lost touch with that side of me. this book completely changed my mind, i spend at least 30 minutes every day reading as much as i can of this book, and i enjoy every second of it. while reading this i think of a ton of different questions, like “how do you pronounce this??” or how one man pretty much had more control over pakistan / swat than their own government did. the questions i come up with aren’t a bad thing, to me it’s the best thing about reading a book!! this review made like zero sense, but i hope whoever is reading this gets what i mean ahaha
