I Am Malala: Young Readers edition

A riveting addition to any classroom geography unit is the memoir by Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai I Am Malala (a Young Readers edition). This story tells the experience of Malala, 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 October 9, 2012, she nearly lost her life for the cause: She was shot point-blank while riding the bus on her way home from school. She was not expected to survive the bullet, but miraculously did. Now Malala is an international symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner. In this Young Readers Edition of her bestselling memoir, which has been reimagined specifically for a younger audience and includes exclusive photos and material, we hear firsthand the remarkable story of a girl who knew from a young age that she wanted to change the world — and did.
