Summary
A MEMOIR BY THE YOUNGEST RECIPIENT OF THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE <br /><br /><b>As seen on Netflix with David Letterman</b><br />"I come from a country that was created at midnight. When I almost died it was just after midday."<br /><br />When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education.<br /><br />On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, when she was fifteen, she almost paid the ultimate price. She was shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school, and few expected her to survive.<br /><br />Instead, Malala's miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York. At sixteen, she became a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest nominee ever for the Nobel Peace Prize.<br /><br /><i>I AM MALALA </i>is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls' education, of a father who, himself a school owner, championed and encouraged his daughter to write and attend school, and of brave parents who have a fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons.<br /><br /><i>I AM MALALA </i>will make you believe in the power of one person's voice to inspire change in the world.
