The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot By The Taliban by Malala Yousafzai, Christina Lamb
The title may seem to say it all, but this is still an enthralling story about a teenage girl fighting for education in the face of serious adversity.
Aged 17, Malala Yousafzai became the youngest ever winner of the Nobel Peace Prize for her efforts in bringing education to young girls in Pakistan, and internationally.
From her time blogging as BBC Urdu to being shot at point-blank range on a school-bus, I Am Malala tells the amazing story of a teenage activist who would become a symbol of peaceful protest.
This is essential reading for anyone who believes in the importance of education, and the power of a single voice to change the world.
