I am Malala

Malala Yousafai and Christina Lamb

In 2009 Malala Yousafzai began writing an anonymous blog for BBC Urdu about life in the Swat Valley, Pakistan. As the Taliban gained control, at times banning girls from attending school, her identity was discovered.  Malala began to appear in Pakistani and international media, campaigning for education for all, until on 9 October 2012, she was shot at point-blank range by a member of the Taliban on her way home from school. Remarkably, Malala survived. In April 2013, Time magazine named her one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World.

I am Malala tells the inspiring story of a schoolgirl who was determined not to be intimidated by extremists, and faced the Taliban with immense courage. Malala speaks of her continuing campaign for every girl's right to an education, shining a light into the lives of those children who cannot attend school.
