I am Malala
Author: Malala Yousafzai
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.
Malala Yousafzai was born in 1997 in the Swat Valley of Pakistan, which she saw transformed from a beautiful and peaceful land to a place of fear and repression under the control of the Taliban. Malala now lives in Birmingham, England. She says she has been given a second life, which she intends to devote to her belief that children everywhere deserve an education. In 2014, she was jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

This book is about a inspirational story about a young girl named Malala Yousafzai. It's written by Malala herself, with the help of Patricia Mccormick. Malala is from Pakistan and in this country they did not allow girls to be educated. Malala was not happy about this therefore she stood up females around the world who don't the right to be educated. Until one day on the back of a bus...she was shot in the head. The girl went through a ton of operations in Birmingham and they were able to...

The book is educational and very interesting. It is about a girl called Malala who fought for the rights of girls. Would you like to be shot in the head for your standing up for yourself? She was. This book is for people that like non-fiction books with amazing facts. How would you feel if at age 13-16 you were a victim of terrorism? She was and it was dealt with. :)

I didn't really enjoy the book I am Malala as i already knew the plot and because i like action and adventure books. The book is about her life and fighting for her education. The book is ok because if you need to research about her it helps and it is intresting to learn about her. I would reccomend this to people who need to research about her.

I enjoied this book very much, it was an emotional and heartgrabbing book. This is the real life story of one of the most inspirational young people in the world. This book is a real story about her life. If you like a book based on a true story then this is the book for you. I would recomend it to people in Y6-Y7 because the language isnt too complicated.

Abdirisaq, harris boys academy east dulwich, 11 Ionawr 2017
This book is about a 14 year old that got shot in the eye and nearly died. The reason why I like this book is because this suspense when her school got attacked by a Taliban. It was suspenseful when it sounded like she died. I think that this book should be towards all people.

what would you do if a group of people were trying to kill you or trying to track you down? Malala is a fantastic book to read because it is talking about someone's life and there experience. I would recommend this book because it has included a autobiography.
Cheanar, Harris Boys Acadamy East Dulwich, 10 Ionawr 2017
Personally, I think that this book is fascinating due to the fact that she fought for her rights and believed in it so much to enable it to come true. Not only that but, it's about a girl who life was tough, also she knew her life was in danger. However she still enabled her right to manage for a while. I recommend this book for you I hope you read it and enjoy it.

When Malala Yousafzai was ten, the Taliban stopped her and her peers from attending school, simply because they were girls. She fought for their right to be educated and was shot in the head in 2012, but survived to tell this incredible, inspiring story.

Patricija, Our lady and st johns, 29 Medi 2016
This book is full of drama and is definitely an inspiring novel for young women. The book makes you realise that there is injustice in the world and that you should help and not just leave it to people like Malala. It is written in a way so that the reader feels part of the book and feels sad when bad things happen, frightened when suspense is near and overcome with joy when Malala recovers. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to every girl who wants to help the world. Fi...
