Written by Malala for her peers, this is the girl behind the Nobel Prize-winning icon. Film tie-in edition with HE NAMED ME MALALA, released 6th November, which tells Malala's story from Nobel Peace Prize to netball courts. The film has now been shortlisted for an Oscar in the Documentary Feature category. Malala is the most significant teenager of the twenty first century. She was only ten years old when the Taliban took control of her region. They said music was a crime. They said women weren't allowed to go to the market. They said girls couldn't go to school. 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 9 October, 2012, she nearly lost her life for the cause. She was shot point-blank on her way home from school. No one expected her to survive. Now she is an international symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize winner. This is the remarkable story of a girl who knew from a young age that she wanted to change the world-and did. It will open your eyes to another world and will make you believe in hope, truth, miracles, and the determination of one person to inspire change. 'It's a searing and personal portrait of a young woman who dared to make a difference' PW

A story of courage, conviction and determination that right will always win in the end Carousel Her inspirational book...reveals not only her motivations for becoming an educational activist but also the complexities of being well-known yet lonely and the sadness of her refugee family yearning for their homeland Daily Mail The amazing story of Malala's courage and her fight for the education of girls is well known. Here, in her own voice, she tells of her journey from her early days as a clever school girl to her exceptional life as an international speaker on the rights of girls to get an education. Growing up in a village in the Swat valley in Pakistan Malala and her friends faced persecution from Islamic fundamentalists who believed women should not be educated. In 2012, Malala and her two school friends were targeted and shot when travelling home from school one day. Fortunately, Malala and her friends survived. From that day on, Malala campaigned for the rights of all girls to get an education. Hearing her tell her story is inspirational. Julia Eccleshare, LOVEREADING Aimed at teen readers, this telling of Malala's story is simply told but still very powerful. It's a sharp insight into a major issue, leavened by her very warm and personal telling. It should be on every school curriculum and on the reading list of every member of parliaments around the world. The Bookbag Malala's down to earth way of telling her story opened my heart. Her voice is all the more powerful coming from one so young. KIDS BOOK REVIEW Firstly, I would like to start off by saying that this was the most inspiring autobiography I have ever read... I would recommend anyone to read this book because it really opened my eyes and made me more aware of what atrocities were happening in the outside world. This book takes its reader on a roller-coaster of emotions from happiness to sadness, from shock to relief. It is an easy read and really worth reading.I would give it five stars out of five because it was just amazing, fascinating and extremely interesting. -- Ayesha GUARDIAN TEEN BOOKS This is one of the two non-fiction books I now own, it'll be placed next to my copy of Anne Frank's Diary on my ever overflowing bookshelves. THE SLEEPY BOOK NERD Malala: The Girl who Stood up for Education and Changed the World is a book I'd really recommend to anybody and everybody. It's such an important read: It's inspirational, influential and moving - but incredibly informative too, because before I'd seen very little about all of the shocking events that happened in Pakistan. Patricia McCormick and Malala are visibly both incredibly talented writers - and this book will definitely stay with me for a long time. It's incredibly hard to do this book justice in a review... This definitely isn't a title you'll want to miss! THE BIBLIOMANIAC A true story of love, loss and tremendous courage, showing how a single voice can change the world. -- CaraErica GUARDIAN TEEN BOOKS
