9780297870913: I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban
Review:

One of the more moving details in I am Malala, the memoir Malala has written with journalist Christina Lamb, is that her mother was due to start learning to read and write on the day Malala was shot - 9 October 2012. (Kamila Shamsie THE GUARDIAN 2013-10-08)

Malala Yousafzai's story begins with her parents being commiserated with after producing a baby girl. In their part of northern Pakistan, she says, rifle shots ring out in celebration of a baby boy's arrival. But there is no such fanfare for females: their destiny is to cook and clean, to be neither seen nor heard...So how did Malala, who barely warranted a mention in her family's genealogy, become destined for the history books as a powerful symbol for girls' universal right to an education? Her memoir I AM MALALA tells us how. (Baroness Wasi DAILY TELEGRAPH 2013-10-08)

This memoir brings out her best qualities. You can only admire her courage and determination. Her thirst for education and reform appear genuine. She also has an air of innocence, and there is an indestructible confidence. She speaks with such poise that you forget that Malala is 16. (Ziauddin Sardar THE TIMES 2013-10-14)

Her story is astonishing. (Owen Bennett-Jones THE SPECTATOR 2013-10-26)

The medical team that saved Malala; her own stoicism and resilience; the support of her family, now, again in exile, this time in Birmingham; Malala's level-headed resolve to continue to champion education and children's rights - these are all powerful reminders of the best in human nature. Much of the money Malala has been awarded has gone to the Malala fund (www.malalafund.org). "Please join my mission," she asks. It's vital that those of us who can, do. (Yvonne Roberts THE OBSERVER 2013-10-13)

Moving and illuminating (Catherine Bennett THE OBSERVER 2013-10-13)

Malala's evocation of place, beautifully and lovingly described, and her paean to her father with his own passion for education, are fascinating. But so is her toughness. She describes seeing a young girl selling oranges, clearly unable to read or write: "I took a photo of her and vowed I would do everything in my power to help educate girls just like her. This was the war I was going to fight." This remarkable book is part memoir, part manifesto. I feel enriched from having read it. I also feel humbled. Our obsession with school performance is suddenly marginalised by a story in which education, quite literally, proves a matter of life and death. (Geoff Barton TIMES EDUCATIONAL SUPPLEMENT 2013-10-18)

Malala's voice has the purity, but also the rigidity, of the principled. Whether she is being a competitive teenager and keeping track of who she beat in exams (and by how much) or writing about the blog for the BBC that catapulted her on to the international stage - "We were learning how to struggle. And we were learning how powerful we are when we speak" - or talking about Pakistan's politicians ("useless"), Malala is passionate and intense. Her faith and her duty to the cause of girls' education is unquestionable, her adoration for her father - her role model and comrade in arms - is moving and her pain at the violence carried out in the name of Islam is palpable. (Fatima Bhutto THE GUARDIAN 2013-10-30)

Part memoir, part mission statement, I Am Malala recounts the early life of Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani schoolgirl who spoke out against the Taliban and was shot for her defiance. Her recovery, bravery and stoicism - and that of her father, Ziauddin - make for shocking and moving reading. ( EMERALD STREET 2013-11-06)

The world is entranced by the story of the 15-year-old girl who was shot in the head by the Taliban because she wished to go to school. Flown over to Birmingham for emergency surgery, she has emerged as an elegant and brave spokesgirl for a better future, to the extent that she almost won the Nobel peace prize and has become a sought-after speaker. This book should inspire girls the world over. ( CATHOLIC HERALD 2013-11-01)

Malala's story is gripping, tragic and yet ultimately full of hope. Faced with religious fundamentalism, suicide bombers and death threats her courage, stoicism and wisdom shine through at every turn. The bond she shares with her father - an equally courageous man whose views on equality are at odds with many of his countrymen - is also very movingly described. ( WOMAN'S WAY 2013-11-04)

The media didn't really take on board the fact, which emerges from her book I AM MALALA, co-written with Christina Lamb, that every single day for her was a protest. She would hide her pens and books under her clothes on the way to school and ignore the Taliban's threats. She is a role model, not just a victim. (Agatha Johnson STANDPOINT 2013-11-01)

Not only powerful, but also very instructive about the recent history of Pakistan and the pressures of everyday life there. One finishes the book full of admiration both for Malala, and for her father, who has clearly inspired her. ( SUNDAY TIMES 2013-12-01)

Rejoice! It was the year that a Pakistani teenager who stood up to the Taliban became a celebrity, and one with a real story to tell. What a breath of fresh air in a genre crowded out by middle-aged TV personalities. Malala Yousafzai invigorated the "all about me" genre with I AM MALALA, with Christina Lamb, a tale of immense courage and conviction which begins as she is shot for campaigning for the rights of girls to an education. ( THE INDEPENDENT 2013-11-30)

I AM MALALA is a rich and riveting account of a short, brave and admirable life. (Kevin Power SUNDAY BUSINESS POST (Ireland) 2013-11-24)

Inspirational and powerful ( GRAZIA 2013-12-03)

The story of the girl shot by the Taliban for speaking up for women's education is one of idealism and stubborn courage, and a reminder that women's rights and many children's rights to education are continually threatened. ( METRO 2013-12-19)

She has the heart and courage of a lioness and is a true inspiration (Lorraine Kelly THE SUN 2013-12-14)

I felt both humbled and inspired by I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai with Christina Lamb, the remarkable story of the young educational campaigner from Pakistan's Swat valley, who miraculously survived after being shot by the dark forces of fundamentalism. Deftly written with the help of an award-winning foreign correspondent, this is a must-read for anyone seeking to understand the tortured politics of the Taliban in the North-West Frontier. (Jimmy Burns THE TABLET 2013-12-07)

It's hard to believe that this intelligent, charismatic and very poised young woman is still just 16 years old. There is so much hope and expectation resting on those inspirational small shoulders. (Lorraine Kelly GLASGOW HERALD 2013-11-30)

One finishes the book full of admiration both for Malala, and for her father, who has clearly inspired her. (Andrew Holgate SUNDAY TIMES 2013-12-01)

In her inspirational and powerful autobiography, Malala tells her own extraordinary story. ( GRAZIA 2013-12-09)

The Pakistani schoolgirl shot by the Taliban has astonished the world with her courage and determination to fight for education and equal rights for women ( FINANCIAL TIMES 2013-12-14)

The inspirational story of the girl who single-handedly showed that the pen is mightier than the sword should be required reading for people of all ages. ( ARMY & YOU 2013-12-01)

The book is equally Malala's story of love for her family and respect for her father who comes across as an inspirational figure. It is a book of courage and endurance in the face of tremendous odds. I am Malala should be read by everyone who sees education as an agency of liberation for both boys and girls and an indispensable weapon in the struggle against ignorance and oppression. (Alan Gibbons ARMADILLO)

Read the story of the remarkable young woman who refused to be silenced after she was shot in the head by the Taliban on a school bus in 2012. At 16, she has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest ever nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize. ( BABY & ME 2014-01-01)

Did you see Malala on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart? If not, Google it and then buy this book. It's hard to find the words to describe what this girl has done, not only for young women everywhere, but also for the world in which it feels like the bad guys always win. I'm all choked up just writing this. ( GLASGOW HERALD 2013-12-14)

Honest, insightful and piercingly wise, this is the celebrity memoir to give your teenaged daughter this Christmas. (Katy Guest INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY 2013-12-22)

Malala has shown extraordinary courage in campaigning for the millions of girls who are still denied an education. Uplifting and inspirational. (June Purvis TIMES HIGHER EDUCATION SUPPLEMENT 2013-12-19)

This courageous and extraordinary young woman has become something of a world symbol. Her stand for education of women in her own native Pakistan was a courageous one, but it should not lead Western readers to think that such things only happened over there. She and her family now live abroad, but as her speeches and appearances show, she continues her campaign for the right of young people everywhere to fully realise their potential. ( IRISH CATHOLIC 2013-12-13)

From the Publisher:

The highly anticipated memoir of Malala Yousafzai, the schoolgirl from Pakistan's Swat region who stood up to the Taliban.

I come from a country which was created at midnight. When I almost died it was just after midday.

When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education. On Tuesday 9 October 2012, she almost paid the ultimate price. Shot in the head at point blank range while riding the bus home from school, few expected her to survive.

Instead, Malala's miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in Northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York. At sixteen, she has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest ever nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize. I Am Malala is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls' education, and of Malala's parents' fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons. It will make you believe in the power of one person's voice to inspire change in the world.
