Om författaren

Malala Yousafzai was born in the Swat Valley of Pakistan on July 12, 1997. In 2009, she wrote a diary for BBC using a pen name about the critical situation in Swat at that time. On October 8, 2012, she was attacked by the Taliban while returning home from school. I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood up visa mer for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban is her first book. She won the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize. In 2015 she launched the #BooksNotBullets campaign on social media to pressure world leaders to invest in education rather than the military. Yousafzai asks low- and middle-income countries to commit a minimum of 20% of national budgets on education, rather than the current average of 15%. (Bowker Author Biography) visa färre

Allmänna fakta




I wanted to rate this book higher because of my admiration for Malala, but in fact I found the book itself a bit slow going.
I read the book primarily because my 13 year old granddaughter just raved about it. I was waiting to borrow her copy until I saw Malala on Jon Stewart's show, at which point I ordered my own copy. Then every time she visited, my granddaughter asked if I had read it yet!

Malala has kept me company for almost a year. She is a patient reading companion, waiting quietly as I wonder how much political turmoil one life can process. All of the names, dates, and details surrounding the upheaval that she experienced in her remote valley overwhelmed me, so I left her on the night stand for months.

But I'm a completist. If I can keep going with a book I will. And I'm glad I did. The final chapters confirm similarities noted between her story and the classic Diary of Anne Frank.

Perhaps what slowed me down is her sense of focus. Here is someone less than 18 years old who knows her calling. Education for all. I so admire this certainty. And I confess that I'm also a little envious. Not that her life was threatened for what she stands for, but that she so clearly does stand for something, something that counts, something she's ready not only to die for, but to live for. And that her father and mother support her.

A very inspiring biography of a young woman who fought for what was right under increasing pressure and danger.
