  About The Book

The bestselling memoir by Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, now in paperback with a new epilogue!

At 15, Malala was shot by the Taliban for advocating for girls' rights to education in Pakistan. Her bravery and commitment to the cause made Malala an international symbol of peaceful protest. In the young readers edition of her memoir, reimagined specifically for a younger audience with award-winning author Patricia McCormick, Malala shares her remarkable story and her message of hope. This paperback includes a new epilogue, where Malala shares her experience of being the youngest person to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and describes some of the work that the Malala Fund has done.

* "A searing and personal portrait of a young woman who dared to make a difference."
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"This is no simple redaction. With the capable assistance of co-author McCormick, the account has been effectively rewritten specifically for children...[I]t should pack quite a wallop." Kirkus Reviews


Yousafzai, Malala (1610975)

Malala Yousafzai was born in 1997 in the Swat Valley of Pakistan. In her short lifetime, she has already experienced devastating changes in her country, which has been transformed from a once peaceful land to a hotbed of terrorism. Malala, who now lives in Birmingham, England, says she has been given a second life, which she intends to devote to the good of the people and her belief that all girls everywhere deserve an education. The fund she started can be found at Malala.org.
