In 2009 Malala Yousafzai began writing a blog on BBC Urdu about life in the Swat Valley as the Taliban gained control, at times banning girls from attending school. When her identity was discovered, Malala began to appear in both Pakistani and international media, advocating the freedom to pursue education for all.
In October 2012, gunmen boarded Malala's school bus and shot her in the face, a bullet passing through her head and into her shoulder. Remarkably, Malala survived the shooting. At a very young age, Malala Yousafzai has become a worldwide symbol of courage and hope. Her shooting has sparked a wave of solidarity across Pakistan, not to mention globally, for the right to education, freedom from terror and female emancipation.
I Am Malala, the memoir of Malala Yousafzai, will shed insight into the lives of those children who cannot attend school, will tell the inspiring story of a schoolgirl faced the Taliban with courage and bravery. Read by Archie Panjabi, with a prologue read by Malala Yousafzai.

The story is full of events within short period of time.
Narration was attractive. Realty, includes the events made the story so interested
Malala and her Parents for understanding Malala
I liked the scene when she went for opening a new school named after her in one of Pakistan cities
Must have, to give
She is very good Educated, so she can give Generously
"Well worth the read"
As a father of three daughters, I found Malala's story inspiring. It's served as a reality check for me, as well as reminding me how much I take for granted, for myself and my family. Obviously there at least two sides to every story, however, I don't doubt there are clearly many battles still to be fought (and worth fighting) so that children all over the world can have the opportunity for education and pull themselves out of poverty.
Found myself extolling the book to family, friends and colleagues - and this is something I very rarely do!The narration in the audio version of the book was excellent.
