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)
what an amazing story, this is this generations Night or Farewell to Manzanar or Diary of Anne Frank even. It really helps you understand what they are going through and is also an amazing example of courage and character for kids to stand up for what is right and what they are passionate about. It also shows an wonderful example of what a family can be for each other, for their community and for the world.
I'd heard of Malala, but her story is so inspiring. She is such an amazing young woman and so brave, strong abd steadfast. I hope to be like her one day. I am going to school to become a teacher, and I will definitely tell her story.
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.
