    DescriptionIn 2009 Malala Yousafzai began writing a blog on BBC Urdu about life in the Swat Valley as the Taliban gained control, at times banning girls from attending school. When her identity was discovered, Malala began to appear in both Pakistani and international media, advocating the freedom to pursue education for all. In October 2012, gunmen boarded Malala's school bus and shot her in the face, a bullet passing through her head and into her shoulder. Remarkably, Malala survived the shooting. At a very young age, Malala Yousafzai has become a worldwide symbol of courage and hope. Her shooting has sparked a wave of solidarity across Pakistan, not to mention globally, for the right to education, freedom from terror and female emancipation. I AM MALALA, the memoir of Malala Yousafzai, will shed insight into the lives of those children who cannot attend school, and will tell the inspiring story of a schoolgirl who faced the Taliban with courage and bravery. Read by Archie Panjabi, with a prologue read by Malala Yousafzai

    Review quote
    Her dedication to her fight to allow girls an education is inspirational, and the bond with her equally highly principled father who shaped her is truly remarkable. -- Rachel Redford THE OLDIE 20140201
