Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

AMAZING STORY

I read this with the high school English class I teach and we all loved it! It is so inspiring and shares a culture most of us have no experience understanding.

Great story for teen daughter

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this story on long car rides together. The message about the value of education for women was wonderful. It gives a good perspective on things we take for granted. I love the narration.

Insightful and inspiring

She provides an honest, open view of a beautiful culture that too often is mid-associated with extremism. Truly inspiring, well written and thoughtful. It gave me a lot to think on and provided insight into countries we as Americans only ever see on the news as ‘the home of terrorism’.
