Publisher's Summary

Young Reader's Edition
In 2014 Malala become the youngest ever person to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Written in collaboration with critically acclaimed National Book Award finalist Patricia McCormick, Malala tells her story - from her childhood in the Swat Valley to the shooting, to her recovery, and to new life in England.
She's a girl who loves cricket, gossips with her best friends, 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, the Taliban seize control, and her homeland descend into a state of fear and repression.
This is the story of her life, and also 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 others.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

An interesting read but sometimes I felt it was Malala's father and mother that should take the credit and in that it loses some credibility.

Inspirational & powerful

Having listened to this with my 9 and 11 year old children, we agree that every child should have an education but also feel that every child should listen to this story as a part of their education. It is moving, educational and powerful. A tremendous, true story.
