Bite-sized Book Review: ‘i am malala’
“ONE child. ONE teacher. ONE book. ONE pen can change the world.” -Malala Yousafzai
Back in 2012, a young girl by the name of Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head by the Taliban for pursuing an education. In “I am Malala,” the Nobel Peace Prize winner tells her story, refusing to be silenced after the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan and fighting for her education. She has been an inspiration for many.
“I am Malala” is an easy read that is not only entertaining but a cultural experience as well. Malala tells of her life before and after being shot, and her story doesn’t need to be taken in all at once. The book can be put down and picked back up without an urgent sense of wondering what will happen next, but is interesting enough to keep reading.
