Book Review: I am Malala
I read this book earlier in the summer this year, and since I am on a book review marathon, I thought why not capture it here too.
I am Malala is a truly inspiring book that takes you on a journey, vividly describing the everyday life of a girl growing up in the Middle East County of Pakistan. Friendships, Secrets, Games, Family, Dreams, Neighborhood, Religion, Education, Aspirations, Evil, Fear, War, Injustice, Culture, Providence (and so much more) are all encompassed in such an intriguing way that makes this book a page turner.
Despite the cultural customs and seemingly religious norms of her region, Malala refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education.
On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, when she was fifteen, Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head at point-blank range on her way home from school. What happens next? I won't tell you but it's very inspiring read if you are looking for a good book.
Have you heard of Malala? Have you read this book?
