Written in collaboration with critically acclaimed National Book Award finalist Patty McCormick, this is Malala's story, written for her peers. Meet the girl behind the icon - a girl who loves cricket, has spats with her best friend, and, on the day of the shooting, nearly overslept and missed an exam. A girl who saw women suddenly banned from public, schools blown up, and Taliban opponents whipped in public. A girl whose homeland descended into a state of fear and repression, and who found herself transformed from being somewhat shy and bookish into a fearless opponent of a murderous regime. This is the story of her passionate belief in every child's right to education, her determination to make that a reality throughout the world, and her hope to inspire other children around the world to stand up for their rights alongside her. Includes brand new material about Malala's life after the shooting - adapting to life in a strange country, rehabilitation, and her thoughts on the continued threats she faces, as well as new photos and illustrations.

“My new favourite heroine”

I wanted to read this book out of a sense of respect, knowing the basics of her courageous story. I expected to cry, and be amazed, and angered and awed, which I was. I didn't expect to learn so much, or to... More

“A book that should be read by all.”

I have rated this book with top marks, as it has taught me so much about Pakistan and the conflict that the country has faced and continues to do battle with. It also taught me a lot about the Muslim community in... More
