I am Malala by Malala Yousufzai


This is the first non fiction book I have read and I have loved it immensely!!

Malala Yousufzai is a young girl who lives in Swat valley, Pakistan .  She is a normal girl  who goes to school, who has two younger brothers, and loving parents. She has friends and education. She was leading a normal life with uncles arguing politics, women listening to the radio untill the Taliban came to her peaceful valley. This was the beginning of the rein by the Taliban, led by Maulana Fazlulla who was respected man. He was considered a religious Mullah but he campaigned against girls rights for education and polio vaccinations. Malala spoke out against him.She spoke for the right for girls education.She gave speeches and won many awards.One day when she was returning from school, she was shot point-blank in the head. She was sent to Birmingham  hospital  to recover.After recovering, she settled into a new life , in Birmingham. She also won Nobel peace prize for her efforts on awareness for girl education.

Malala Yousufzai  is an idol for many people. It is because of her that swat valley girls get to go to school, I’m grateful to her for that . Malala is a hero, and the book was extremely  good and kept me hooked till the last page.It is nice read to devour for a bookworm!
