A MEMOIR BY THE YOUNGEST RECIPIENT OF THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE As seen on Netflix with David Letterman"I come from a country that was created at midnight. When I almost died it was just after midday." 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. 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. 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. I AM MALALA 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. I AM MALALA will make you believe in the power of one person's voice to inspire change in the world.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Malala YousafzaiPublisher: Little Brown and CompanyPublished: 10/08/2013ISBN: 9780316322409Pages: 352Weight: 1.29lbsSize: 9.50h x 6.38w x 1.14dAward: Virginia Readers Choice Award - NomineeAward: Black-Eyed Susan Award - NomineeAward: Nautilus Award - WinnerReview Citations: Library Journal Prepub Alert 05/15/2013 pg. 55People Weekly 10/21/2013 pg. 72Entertainment Weekly 10/18/2013 pg. 71LJ Best Books of Year 12/01/2013 pg. 34Entertainment Weekly 06/27/2014 pg. 22People Weekly 12/29/2014 pg. 36People 06/29/2015 pg. 42Library Journal 05/15/2013Accelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 163041 / I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the TalibanReading Level: 7.1 / Interest Level: Upper Grade / Point Value: 16
