I Am Malala tells the remarkable true story of a girl who knew she wanted to change the world – and did. Winner of the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize, Malala tells her incredible, inspirational story for teen readers in her own words in this book, which inspired the BAFTA winning documentary, He Named Me Malala.
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 her story in her own words for her generation.
