I Am Malala is the memoir of a remarkable teenage girl who risked her life for the right to go to school. Raised in a changing Pakistan by an enlightened father from a poor background and a beautiful, illiterate mother from a political family, Malala was taught to stand up for what she believes. I Am Malala tells her story of bravery and determination in the face of extremism, detailing the daily challenges of growing up in a world transformed by terror.
Written for her peers with critically-acclaimed author Patricia McCormick, this important book is about the value of speaking out against intolerance and hate. It's a message of hope from one girl who dreams of education for every girl in every country.

"In a work this personal and important, it’s vital to utilize a reader who engages the listener and renders an authentic interpretation of the writer, both physically and emotionally. Neela Vaswani does this admirably." (AudioFile)
I am so glad that my school has chosen this book for our summer reading. It has taught me so much about the aspects of life and how we should rise our voice for what we believe in. So thank you Malala.
Mala was an inspiring story that has a lesson for all of us. Children around the world take charge of your education. Fight to get one or appreciate the one you have
Very engaging and inspiring story! Very, very well done by the reader! Thank you for making this book available as an audio book. I listened as I was driving on a long road trip. Time just flew by.
This was one of the very best books I have ever heard.
It contained just the amount of information, flow and details to not only inform but to elicit a desire to advocate for education and peace for everyone. Hearing Malala address the World co ngress at the end, in reciept of her Nobel Peace Prize was a treat. Malala has clearly demonstrated her power in speaking about and living social activisim,, strength and freedom.
