Publisher's Summary

The best-selling memoir by Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai.

I Am Malala. This is my story.

Malala Yousafzai was only 10 years old when the Taliban took control of her region. They said music was a crime. They said women weren't allowed to go to the market. They said girls couldn't go to school. Raised in a once-peaceful area of Pakistan transformed by terrorism, Malala was taught to stand up for what she believes. So she fought for her right to be educated. And on October 9, 2012, she nearly lost her life for the cause: She was shot point-blank while riding the bus on her way home from school. No one expected her to survive.

Now Malala is an international symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner. In this young readers edition of her best-selling memoir, which has been reimagined specifically for a younger audience and includes exclusive photos and material, we hear firsthand the remarkable story of a girl who knew from a young age that she wanted to change the world - and did.

Malala's powerful story will open your eyes to another world and will make you believe in hope, truth, miracles, and the possibility that one person - one young person - can inspire change in her community and beyond.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Malala Thank you for your amazing story

When I got this audio book, I balked at listening to it. I didn't want to be horrified and depressed that a stupid terrorist organization had shot a young girl. I was wrong. Malala talks about her exciting life. She struggles to go to school and beat the other girls in her class for the top spots. She fights with her brothers over the remote. Moments of horror are arrested by the strength of her kindness and sense of humor. I can see why no terrorist organization had a chance against her. Her voice and strength of heart are unbeatable.

Wonderful heart-warming book. Malala courageous!

This is a very good book on Malala (and her family’s) courageous life story.

I can’t believe how the Taliban would shoot a 15 year-old girl in the head because she wanted herself and other girls to go to school! And President Biden just gave the country of Afghanistan back to the Taliban! Scary!

Malala tells an engaging story about her life and the reasons why the Taliban “needed” to shoot this little girl!

I cried many times. I can’t believe the pain and anguish she went through recovering from her assassination attempt by the Taliban. Also, what her father and mother went through seeing what their daughter went through—especially when they encouraged Malala to fight for human rights & education. This family is one tough and courageous family, helping people out, even though they may be killed by the Taliban.

I love the accompanying PDF with photographs of her family. I could put faces on the family. Also, there are nice time-lines.

Highly recommended!
