Product Overview

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.

On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, when she was fifteen, she almost paid the ultimate price. She was shot in the head at point-blank range 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 sixteen, she has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest nominee ever for the Nobel Peace Prize.

I am Malala is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls' education, of a father who, himself a school owner, championed and encouraged his daughter to write and attend school, and of brave parents who have a fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons.

From the Publisher
Editors Note Malala will tell the inspirational story of a remarkable teenage girl who risked her life to stand up to the Taliban for her right to go to school. It will also be the story of her unusual family who refused to be cowed or silenced as Islamic militants turned their homeland into hell: an enlightened father from a poor background who overcame a terrible stammer to win a speaking contest, and follow his dream of opening a school, and a beautiful and illiterate mother from an important political family. In vivid detail, Malala will tell of their bravery and determination in the face of extremism, capturing the daily challenges of trying to lead a normal life in a world transformed by terror. It will be a book about the importance of speaking up against intolerance and hate, and about the dangers of complacency.
