Malala Yousafzai - I Am Malala (Teen Edition) (2nd Hand Paperback)
Teen Edition retold by Malala for her own Generation. (Fully Updated)
I Am Malala: The Story of the Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban is an autobiographical book by Malala Yousafzai, co-written with Patricia McCormack.
Malala tells her story - from her childhood in the Swat Valley to the shooting, her recovery and 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.
The book details the early life of Yousafzai, her father's ownership of schools and activism, the rise and fall of the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan in Swat Valley and the assassination attempt made against Yousafzai, when she was aged 15, following her activism for female education.
It has received a positive critical reception and won awards, though it has been banned in many schools in Pakistan.

"This book was one of a few autobiographical books I read last year, really in a phase of doing so. But this one is one of the top books I've ever read. This shouldn't even be a hard decision for people to purchase. I learnt more about Pakistan and Afghanistan, more about the Taliban, more about Islam and Muslim religion, more about the life for people in those countries and the history of the people that live or lived there. This book was eye opening and amazing to read."
"Malala does not sugar coat, but neither does she give any gory detail and does not dwell on being a victim. Along with the basic facts there are anecdotes and memories that never let you forget that she was a child through all of this." - Google Reviews.
"Malala is an inspiration to girls & women all over the world." - J.K. Rowling.
