I Am Malala

How One Girl Stood Up for Education and Changed the World. Winner of the Internationaler Friedenspreis für Kinder 2013 and Specsavers National Book Awards, Non-Fiction Book of the Year 2013

Malala Yousafzai was only ten years old when the Taliban took control of her region. They said music was a crime. They said women weren´t allowed to go to the market. They said girls couldn´t go to school.

Raised in a once-peaceful area of Pakistan transformed by terrorism, Malala was taught to stand up for what she believes. So she fought for her right to be educated. And on 9 October, 2012, she nearly lost her life for the cause. She was shot point-blank on her way home from school.

No one expected her to survive.

Now she is an international symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize nominee.

This is the remarkable story of a girl who knew from a young age that she wanted to change the world-and did. It will open your eyes to another world and will make you believe in hope, truth, miracles, and the determination of one person to inspire change.
