I am Malala

(27 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Hachette Children's Group

The story of Malala Yousafzai's life is extraordinary and massively life-affirming.

Malala was born in the Swat valley in Pakistan during turbulent times of trouble and terror. Religious fundamentalists tried to deny her and other girls an education. Targeted and shot because of her belief and bravery to stand up against this prejudice, Malala's breath-taking story is shocking, exciting and surprising. 

This is the real life story of one of the most incredible and inspirational young people in the world. Reading this book might just change the way you think and feel. It encourages everyone to stand up for what is right.
