    I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban depicts the life of Malala Yousafzai and how she came to be the winner of the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize.

    Summary of the Book

    It was in the year 2009 that Malala, the little girl who has now become an icon of courage and hope around the world, started writing a blog. She shared her experiences in the Swat Valley under the control of the Taliban. The girls in the valley were not allowed to attend school on several occasions. This wasn’t long before Malala Yousafzai made herself known to the public through her frequent appearances in both Pakistani and international media. She strongly advocated freedom of education for everyone, especially for young girls and women in her valley and throughout the world. When she boarded her school bus in October 2011, she was shot by a gunman as soon as she told him her name. And although one of the bullets went through her forehead and into her shoulder, she endured the attack to come back even stronger, and people from all over the world were on her side of the battle. This is the fully updated edition of I Am Malala, the story of her bravery, which has made her a symbol of grit, peace, and hope.

    I am Malala. This is my story.

    A heart wrenching story of a brave young girl who did everything she could given her limited means and then some.

    Really Nice

    If one is not given their basic human rights,they must fight until they get it.I completely love the way this book revolves around fighting for the basic human rights granted to each human by the Almighty.Malala serves as an inspiration for girls to stand up for their education and attain it.I salute Malala's strength and dauntless spirit owing to which she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.However,I do doubt the authenticity of the great acts of Malala mentioned in the book. Also,some parag...

    Story of a true Hero!!

    This story although set in the context of Malala, but it is really about why she is what she is. Ziauddin Yousufzai gave his entire life for education and betterment of the society. His focus and his selflessness comes out through the book!

    He is a true hero!! Read the book for him!!
