Book Review – I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai

 I am Malala was very fascinating to read as it is the phenomenal story of not only a girl, but a nation overturned by comprehensive terrorism, the struggle for girls’ education, and how even in a society where when boys are born celebrations arouse, and when girls are born they are hid away from the world, Malala was raised with respect and equality.Who is Malala ? On Tuesday, October 9. 2012, a fifteen year old Pakistani girl had been shot through her left eye socket when riding the bus home from school. Very few expected her to survive but this girl was given another chance at life and had miraculously recovered. This extraordinary girls’ recovery led her down a dwindling path from a secluded village in Northern Pakistan to the most well known city in the world, New York where she continued to raise awareness of the Taliban’s nature. Malala is the youngest nominee ever for the Nobel Peace Prize and is the winner of Pakistan’s first National Youth Peace Prize. I Am Malala will make you value the importance of life and motivate you to do some good in this world, as the power of one’s voice can inspire change on a global scale. This is Malala. I would recommend this book for anyone who is interested in the fight for education or who is interested in reading about the fight for justice. The writing level for this book is good for light reading, however the content goes beyond deeper than the surface of its words.
