Summary

*Young Reader's Edition*

In 2014 Malala become the youngest ever person to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize

Written in collaboration with critically acclaimed National Book Award finalist Patricia McCormick, Malala tells her story - from her childhood in the Swat Valley to the shooting, her recovery and new life in England. She's a girl who loves cricket, gossips with her best friends, and, on the day of the shooting, nearly overslept and missed an exam. A girl who saw women suddenly banned from public, schools blown up, the Taliban seize control, and her homeland descend into a state of fear and repression.

This is the story of her life, and also of her passionate belief in every child's right to education, her determination to make that a reality throughout the world, and her hope to inspire others.

Read by Neela Vaswani.

Inspirational & powerful

Having listened to this with my 9 and 11 year old children, we agree that every child should have an education but also feel that every child should listen to this story as a part of their education. It is moving, educational and powerful. A tremendous, true story.

Awesome

What can I say, the book speaks for itself. Please read it.
Thank you Malala for bravery that inspires and blesses for generations to come. Thank you to your family for their courageous love - to say only 2 examples: your father for stepping outside social boundaries for what is right, and from my mother's heart to your mama for her endless prayers in the garden over her child.

Biography

An interesting read but sometimes I felt it was Malala's father and mother that should take the credit and in that it loses some credibility.

Fascinating read

It's interesting how much Malala's story tracks with Ayaan Hirsi Ali's. The quiet peaceful village, colourful clothing, and local traditions steamrolled by Islamists. The radio imam turning up out of the blue and spreading fear and hatred. It seems that Islamists are using the same strategy, the same modus operandi the world over. That the exact same story unfolds in Ayaan's Somali as in Malalas Pakistan, seems too much a coincidence, and suggests this same story is happening the world over. It should also be no surprise that in both cases a young woman spoke the loudest and risked the most to fight against it. Women have the most to gain, and the least to lose, in the fight against Islamism. Yet one still cannot help but be inspired and impressed with their bravery.
