I Am Malala

I Am Malala

‘Malala is an inspiration to girls and women all over the world.’ – J.K. Rowling

Written by Malala in collaboration with critically acclaimed author, Patricia McCormick, this children’s edition tells the remarkable story of a girl who knew from a young age that she wanted to change the world – and did. Her journey will open your eyes to another world and will make you believe in hope, truth, miracles, and the determination of one person to inspire change.

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 9 October, 2012, she nearly lost her life for the cause. She was shot point-blank on her way home from school. No one expected her to survive. Now, she is an international symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize winner.

This is a must-listen for anyone who believes in the power of change.

Read by Neela Vaswani and winner of the GRAMMY award winner for Children’s Album, 2015.

Reviews

It's a searing and personal portrait of a young woman who dared to make a difference.
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
Aimed at teen readers, this telling of Malala's story is simply told but still very powerful. It's a sharp insight into a major issue, leavened by her very warm and personal telling. It should be on every school curriculum and on the reading list of every member of parliaments around the world.

The amazing story of Malala's courage and her fight for the education of girls is well known. Here, in her own voice, she tells of her journey from her early days as a clever school girl to her exceptional life as an international speaker on the rights of girls to get an education. Growing up in a village in the Swat valley in Pakistan Malala and her friends faced persecution from Islamic fundamentalists who believed women should not be educated. In 2012, Malala and her two school friends were targeted and shot when travelling home from school one day. Fortunately, Malala and her friends survived. From that day on, Malala campaigned for the rights of all girls to get an education. Hearing her tell her story is inspirational.
