Description
When the Taliban captured the Swat Valley in Pakistan, young Malala Yousafzai refused to be denied an education, as she tells us in this memoir for readers 10 and up. She began writing for BBC Urdu about life under the Taliban, until October 9, 2012, when she was shot by an assassin while riding the bus home from school. Yet Malala miraculously recovered, and has since become an international figure for children's and women's rights and the youngest-ever recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. Co-written by two-time National Book Award finalist Patricia McCormick, her story is full of vivid details about her childhood in Pakistan, as well as her powerful determination to see that all children have access to education.

"A searing and personal portrait of a young woman who dared to make a difference."?Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Her strong voice and ideals come across on every page, emphasizing how her surroundings and supportive family helped her become the relevant figure she is today. Yousafzai highlights the importance of school and how it was the only space where she felt empowered ... [and] effectively summarizes her story and her advocacy for girls' education, peace, and human rights."School Library Journal
