The inspirational true story of one girl's courage to stand up for what she believes in and how she changed the world.

'Malala is an inspiration to girls and women all over the world.' - J.K. Rowling

I Am Malala tells the remarkable story of a girl who knew she wanted to change the world - and did.

Raised in the Swat Valley in Pakistan, Malala was taught to stand up for her beliefs. When terrorists took control of her region and declared girls were forbidden from going to school, Malala fought for her right to an education. And, on 9 October 2012, she nearly paid the ultimate price for her courage when she was shot on her way home from school.

No one expected her to survive.

A must-listen for anyone who believes in the power of change.

* This teen edition is a first-hand account told in Malala's own words for her generation. *

This book inspired the film HE NAMED ME MALALA, the winner of the BAFTA for Best Documentary.

Read by Neela Vaswani, 2015.

(P)2014 Hodder & Stoughton Limited
