I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban by Malala Yousafzai
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The story of Malala is compelling and profound. This book covers much more than just the intimate details of a cowardly and vicious attempt on a young girls life, but the book gives an enormous amount of information about the region, the people, their beliefs and values. Malala gives us a peek into a world that most westerners know very little about. I was surprised at the depth of political and geographic details in the book, which really helped the reader to understand the dynamics that led to the attempt on her life. Malala and her parents are inspiring with their courageous and relentless pursuit of education and equality for girls and women. I really enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it.
