I am Malala, Malala Yousafzai (2013)
Plot: Malala Yousafzai was born in 1997 in the Swat Valley of Pakistan, which she saw transformed from a beautiful and peaceful land to a place of fear and repression under the control of the Taliban. Malala now lives in Birmingham, England. She says she has been given a second life, which she intends to devote to her belief that children everywhere deserve an education. In 2014, she was jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
The book ‘Malala’ is based on real life events; both difficult and positive. This book is phenomenal . I would thoroughly recommend.
