Meilleur Vendeur I Am Malala: Young Readers Edition
This remarkable Pakistani teenager risked her life for the right to go to school!
Recommended for Grades 5 & up.
Malala Yousafzai was only ten years old when the Taliban took control of her region. They said music was a crime. They said women weren't allowed to go to the market. They said girls couldn't go to school.
Raised in a once-peaceful area of Pakistan transformed by terrorism, Malala was taught to stand up for what she believes. So she fought for her right to be educated. And on October 9, 2012, she nearly lost her life for the cause: she was shot point-blank while riding the bus home from school. No one expected her to survive.
Now Malala is an international symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner. Read the remarkable first-hand story of a girl who knew from a young age that she wanted to change the world—and did. Malala's powerful story will open readers eyes to another world and will make them believe in hope, truth, miracles, and the possibility that one person—one young person—can inspire change in her community and beyond.
This Young Readers Edition of her bestselling memoir has been reimagined specifically for a younger audience and includes exclusive photos and material.
