Synopsis: This is the rather famous story of Malala Yousafzai. She lived in Pakistan, and started blogging about the Taliban invading her home, Swat Valley.

This is her story of how she stood up for her education and changed the world.

5 stars

Review: I really liked this book. I was hesitant to try it at first since I knew her story rather well. However I got to hear all of Malala’s thoughts of what was happening, and it was rather detailed. I find this very intriguing, and I couldn’t put it down. I would recommend this book to anyone who needs a good biography, or wants to read about one of the most inspiring people in the world.
