I am Malala
I Am Malala
Using the pen name
Gul Makai
, she often spoke about her family's fight for girls' education in her community.
In October 2012, Malala was targeted by the Taliban and shot in the head as she was returning from school on a bus
In recognition of her courage and advocacy, Malala was the winner of Pakistan's National Youth Peace Prize in 2011 and was nominated for the International Children's Peace Prize in the same year
She is the youngest person ever nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. She was one of four runners-up for Time magazine's Person of the Year and has received numerous other awards
About the Author
Malala's father started the Khushal School
Birth of Malala in Swat; for Pashtun culture it is bad luck to have a girl but her father was happy to have her
Went to school and became a very good public speaker
Fuzullah slowly started to take over the valley with Mullah FM
Nobody spoke out until it was too late and he took over with the Taliban
Book Summary
In the book I am Malala on page 7 paragraph one "We'd lived on the same street when we were little...We'd share everything from Justin Bieber songs to Twilight movies"
Literary Luminary
: The act of insulting or showing disrespect to God or something holy
: 7
Helped us understand what has happened in Islamabad
Slow at first
Got excited at the end
Our Rating
Malala was one of the few people who showed her face and spoke out for education
She refused to be silenced and fought for her education rights
She was shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school
People all around the world offered medical help; she was called Pakistan's daughter
Recovered in Birmingham England and never went back to Swat

I Am Malala is similar to a book series called the Hunger Games

“I don't want to be thought of as the "girl who was shot by the Taliban" but the "girl who fought for education." This is the cause to which I want to devote my life.”
Malala Yousafazai, pg 556

This quote shows the dedication Malala had for education. She didn't want to be pitied and she barely cared about who shot her and wanted no revenge, she just wanted to be heard by her people. It was touching to know that someone who is only about 16 cared so much about education that she would risk her life to speak out.
“Let us pick up our books and our pens,” I said. “They are our most powerful weapons. One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world.”
-Malala Yousafazai, pg 557

This quote was important because it is inspiring. It shows how one person with an education can do so much to change the world if they really wanted to, just like Malala.
: a person who is put to death or endures great suffering for a belief, principal, or cause
: A governor of a province in an Arab country
Quoted from page 46 paragraph three it says "Neither students nor the teachers were supposed to have their own opinions.."
This is true for the entire world not only in Swat
In America we may have freedom of speech but when speaking out people are often afraid to say what they want
Malala like many teenaged girls has fangirled over different topics and I have fangirled before as well
Malala can be compared to the main character Katniss because they are both idolized as important people to their nation
“But I realized that even if you win three or four times, the next victory will not necessarily be yours without trying—and also that sometimes it’s better to tell your own story. I started writing my own speeches and changing the way I delivered them, from my heart rather than from a sheet of paper.”
Malala Yousafazai, pg 147

The importance of this quote is that it teaches a lesson. It is insightful and explains that when you do something yourself, it gives you a sense of accomplishment and nobody can explain something you want to say better then yourself.
I would recommend this book because it teaches kids like us about the values of education and how we often take this learning opportunity for advantage.
: Good fortune, fortunate
: beat with a whip or stick
: Vehicle similar to a 3 wheeled bicycle
: Muslim word for immigrants
: Prepared to obey others unquestioningly
: A rich man
