I am Malala

Cover: 'I am Malala'

Staff Review: "I am Malala" by Malala Yousafzai


This fascinating and thought provoking memoir takes us into the world of schoolchildren in the Swat Valley of Pakistan; a world not often experienced by outsiders since the takeover of the Taliban. Malala faces adversity, including the brutal attack in which she was shot in the face by the Taliban, with the courage that comes from being passionate about every child's right to receive an education. This book inspires compassion, understanding, and a desire to make Malala's dream of available education come true.

Audience: adults | Genre: nonfiction, memoir
