"Riveting.... It is difficult to imagine a chronicle of a war more moving, apart from perhaps the diary of Anne Frank." --Washington Post
When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education. In October 2012, when she was 15, Malala almost paid the ultimate price. She was shot in the head while riding the bus home from school, and few expected her to survive. Instead, Malala's miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York. At 16, she became a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest nominee ever for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Hailed by the Associated Press for its "arresting detail," I AM MALALA will make readers believe in the power of one person's voice to inspire change in the world.
