I Am Malala by
Malala Yousafzai
 I Am Malala tells the remarkable story of a girl who knew she wanted to change the world - and did.

Raised in the Swat Valley in Pakistan, Malala was taught to stand up for her beliefs. When terrorists took control of her region and declared girls were forbidden from going to school, Malala fought for her right to an education. And, on 9 October 2012, she nearly paid the ultimate price for her courage when she was shot on her way home from school.

No one expected her to survive.

Now, she is an international symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest person ever to win a Nobel Peace Prize.

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