Summary:

A MEMOIR BY THE YOUNGEST RECIPIENT OF THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE

As seen on Netflix with David Letterman
'I come from a country that was created at midnight. When I almost died it was just after midday.'

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 became 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.

I AM MALALA will make you believe in the power of one person's voice to inspire change in the world.

    Amazing story from a brave soul! Definitely a must read.

    The narrator did a great job...her voice was very pleasant to listen to. I thought the topic of the book was intriguing since I live in the U.S. and don't know much about Pakistan or its inhabitants. I sympathize with Malala and admire her courage and her father's courage. That said, I found most of the book a bit dry. While it was good to have the background and the events that led up to Malala being shot, I think it was a bit too drawn out. Definitely still feel it was worth reading
