When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education. On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, when she was fifteen, she almost paid the ultimate price. She was shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school, and 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 nominee ever for the Nobel Peace Prize. This is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls' education, of a father who, himself a school owner, championed and encouraged his daughter to write and attend school, and of brave parents who have a fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons. This story will make you believe in the power of one person's voice to inspire change in the world. -- Publisher's description.… (més)

This is the terrifying true story of how extremists infiltrate and take over a community, stealing its trust away from the proper authorities and claiming it for themselves, imposing themselves through swift 'justice' and willingness to commit unchecked, unremitting violence. It is also the even more terrifying story of standing up to them. I watched an interview with Malala by David Letterman on Netflix and was struck by the impression of a typical university student, contrasting with her larger-than-life public image. This has made me a latecomer to her biography, published in 2013, but my delay is opportune given the several scattered references that tie in with events of 2022: passing mention of the now-late Queen Elizabeth II's visit to northern Pakistan; reaction to the 'Satanic Verses' of Salman Rushdie who was recently stabbed in New York; and the Swat Valley, which has not escaped this year's catastrophic monsoon flooding.

I could also say it is well timed with the rise of Canadian populism, except that our troubles don't compare with the Taliban's religious extremism that led to shooting a fourteen year old girl in the face. This key scene is dispensed with in the book's prologue before settling in. Malala's relatively short life to that point would not provide an entire book's worth of content without delving into the biographies of her parents, and it requires setting the scene within the history of her country and region while shedding light on Pashtun culture. These opening chapters strongly trigger a "they're just like us" sentiment, highlighting cultural differences but demonstrating that the Swat Valley features the same range of personalities as every other community on Earth. Pakistan's political history is a necessary part of the picture. From the point at which the Taliban enter into it, so does the tension.

It's not the first biography I've read that was assisted by a ghost writer, but I've never been so conscious of that person's contribution before. In many sections I can't align what I've read with Malala's voice as I've heard it in her speeches and interviews, though she must have informed and confirmed its depictions of her family and personal events. Precise casualty statistics and dated drone attacks can only be Christina Lamb masquerading as Malala. Other parts do seem more like the actual recollections of a young girl trying to make sense of what was happening as the Taliban noose drew tighter, and finding the incredible willingness to act. Long after the Taliban and Malala have both passed into history, the power of that parable will remain. ( )

Malala Yousafzai's story is both heartbreaking and entirely inspiring for not just girls but everyone. Her writing is filled with courage and an undeniable love that you cannot help but feel. It continually blows my mind that a girl around my age (17) had the courage to stand up for something when the odds against her were heavily stacked. Malala talks of change and she actually has reasons, evidence, and solutions unlike so many others of our time. This book gives us a wonderful view into that society by allowing us to live through Malala's experiences. We witness her (and her father's) courage as they fight for what they believe in, work to educate women, risk their lives and their own safety for what they think is right, endure terrible repercussions, and never give up despite suffering such consequences. Malala is now one of my inspirations, and I will try my best to be as brave, caring, selfless, helpful, and optimistic as she is. We should all try to emulate Malala a little more, in my opinion. ( )

What an amazing, beautiful book. Malala is an absolute inspiration. Hearing about the life she and her family led leading up to and after Malala’s shooting takes you away from your own life and opens your eyes to the horrors that many have had to go through, but also the love and beauty of a home that can remain so strong even through so much hardship. At times I got a little lost in the information and names towards the middle of the book, but I think that speaks more to my own ignorance on the topic than anything. A very, very inspirational read.

I wish Malala has actually written more of this than she did. Tho the info dumps were interesting. ( )

Well written and easy to get into. Paints a very clear and grim picture of life in Pakistan. This is an important story that all young people,boys and girls, should read to be aware of what is happening in the world. I want my teenage sons to read it to understand that women's lives can be very precarious in many other parts of the world and that, like Malala, I believe that education is the answer to many of the worlds biggest problems.

Though we loved school, we hadn't realized how important education was until the Taliban tried to stop us.
The Taliban could take our pens and books, but they couldn't stop our minds from thinking.
I was trying to get my head around the fact that she had been living in Karachi for thirty years and yet had never actually aid eyes on the ocean. Her husband would not take her to the beach, and even if she had somehow slipped out of the house, she would not have been able to follow the signs to the sea because she could not read.
