A seventh-grade girl blogging about life under the Taliban in Pakistan's Swat Valley, Malala wrote in favor of education for girls—so the Taliban waylaid her school bus and shot her in the head.
Upon her recovery, Malala refused to be silenced, and the courage and effectiveness of her advocacy has made her the youngest winner of a Nobel Peace Prize. "A true story that is easily interwoven with important global issues such as human rights, development, education, and peace," writes Cristina Maza in the online magazine PolicyMic. The paperback includes a brief discussion guide. (Young Reader’s Edition: grades 4–6, 230 pages.)
