Description
When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, young Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education. She came to public attention at the age of 11 by writing for BBC Urdu about life under the Taliban, using the pen name Gul Makai, and often spoke about her family's fight for girls' education in her community. On October 9, 2012, when she was 15, she was shot in the head while riding the bus home from school, and few expected her to survive. Instead, Malala's miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the United Nations in New York. As an international figure for children's and women's rights she has earned Pakistan's first National Youth Peace Prize, the Sakharov Prize, and a nomination for the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize. With Christina Lamb, the author of The Sewing Circles of Herat, Malala tells a riveting story of a family uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls' education, of a father who championed and encouraged his daughter to write and attend school, and of parents who held a fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons.

"Co-written with Christina Lamb, a veteran British journalist who has an evident passion for Pakistan and can render its complicated history with pristine clarity, this is a book that should be read not only for its vivid drama but for its urgent message about the untapped power of girls.... It is difficult to imagine a chronicle of a war more moving, apart from perhaps the diary of Anne Frank. With the essential difference that we lost that girl, and by some miracle, we still have this one."Washington Post
