Publisher Description

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 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.

    " We are reading I Am Malala in class. The kids enjoyed hearing Malala's actual voice. The pacing was fine, and they really got into it. However, the last chapter (with the UN speech) and the epilogue were not on the downloaded recording. "
