“I Am Malala…” is the memoir of a teenage girl, who risked her life for the right to go to school. Raised in Pakistan by an enlightened father from a poor background and an illiterate mother from a political family, she was taught to stand up for what she believed in.
The story relates Malala’s bravery and determination in the face of extremism, detailing the daily challenges of growing up in a world transformed by terror.
Critically-acclaimed author Patricia McCormick served as contributor to the tale.
