"I Am Malala. This is my story. Malala Yousafzai was only ten years old when the Taliban took control of her region. They said music was a crime. They said women weren't allowed to go to the market. They said girls couldn't go to school. Raised in a once-peaceful area of Pakistan transformed by terrorism, Malala was taught to stand up for what she believes. So she fought for her right to be educated. And on October 9, 2012, she nearly lost her life for the cause: She was shot point-blank while riding the bus on her way home from school. No one expected her to survive. Now Malala is an international symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize nominee. In this Young Readers Edition of her bestselling memoir, which includes exclusive photos and material, we hear firsthand the remarkable story of a girl who knew from a young age that she wanted to change the world -- and did. Malala's powerful story will open your eyes to another world and will make you believe in hope, truth, miracles and the possibility that one person -- one young person -- can inspire change in her community and beyond.

This is inspirational but also political. I'm proud of Malala for the way she stood up for education and am impressed at her courage as she continues to stand up and speak out. What a strong young woman! ( )

Powerful story of Malala's fight for education rights for girls ( )
  AccyP | Aug 14, 2020 |
What's refreshing about this autobiography is that the reader is able to see Malala as a typical person ... a young girl who fought with her brothers, had tiffs with her best friend and was competitive with her classmates. Granted, she was and still is an amazingly poised and confident young woman. But I appreciated getting behind the stoic image to understand what her life was like before and after the Taliban attack that almost killed her. This is the YA edition, which I bought for my younger daughter. I don't know how much detail has been left out from the adult version, but I enjoyed the book. It also prompted me to check out the Malala Fund at malala.org. Pretty cool. ( )

Enjoyable read that adds color to a traumatic experience that thrust malala into prominence and continued idealism. Rooting for her and her education causes. Much more story to be written in her life ( )

(Review of British edition, "Malala: the Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Changed the World.") Firstly, I would like to start off by saying that this was the most inspiring autobiography I have ever read. ... The book starts off by talking about Malala's childhood and how everything was normal and how happy her life was until the Taliban showed up. ... I would recommend anyone to read this book because it really opened my eyes and made me more aware of what atrocities were happening in the outside world. ... I would give it five stars out of five because it was just amazing, fascinating and extremely interesting.

(Review of British edition, "Malala: the Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Changed the World.") ... Written together with Patricia McCormick, an American journalist and two-time National Book Award finalist, the book is a young readers' edition of the autobiography released in October 2013. ... The juxtaposition of issues such as terrorism and the political turmoil in her country with prosaic concerns such as not being tall enough does not let the reader forget that this is, essentially, the story of a young girl. ... Ms Yousafzai's father not only comes across as a mentor to his daughter, but also the guardian angel who asserted that his daughter "will live as free as a bird" to anyone who thought her rude or bold because of her outspoken nature. ... In the story of the girl who took a bullet for the cause of the insatiable desire to know more, we have a lesson on how noble ideas cannot ever be silenced.
 
... There were a lot of things I didn't know about Malala before I read this book. ... This book gave me so much more insight into the life of a girl I thought I knew. It's a powerful read and might inspire some activism after the final pages. It certainly did for me. I can highly recommend reading this book. While it is considered the Young Readers Edition of Malala's original memoir, I don't think it lost anything in the retelling. It is gripping and occasionally hard to read, given the violent subject matter, but it is told in a voice that is easy for young people to latch on to. ... This book does an excellent job presenting Malala as a person --- as a teenage girl --- and not necessarily as the heroic figure we see on TV. ...
 
(Starred review.) Adapted... from the adult bestseller, this inspiring memoir by activist Yousafzai sketches her brave actions to champion education in Pakistan under the Taliban. ... Yousafzai highlights the escalating tensions as the Taliban takes hold — including the strictures against girls attending school, the obliteration of Western influence, violence, and the eventual war — but also brings the universal to life as she quarrels with her brothers, treasures her best friend, and strives to earn top grades. A glossary, color photo inserts, and an extensive timeline help establish context. It's a searing and personal portrait of a young woman who dared to make a difference. Ages 10–up.

Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teen shot for her activism for girls’ education, tells her story for a middle-grade audience. Although billed as a “young readers edition” of Yousafzai’s 2013 book of the same name for adults, ...this is no simple redaction... [instead,] the account has been effectively rewritten specifically for children. ... Yousafzai’s voice is appealingly youthful, though it often tells rather than shows and frequently goes over the top: In her school, she writes, “we flew on wings of knowledge.” Still, young Western readers will come to understand the gulf that separates them from Yousafzai through carefully chosen anecdotes, helping them see what drives her to such lyrical extremes. Unfortunately, much is lost in the translation from the adult book, presumably sacrificed for brevity and directness; most lamentable is social and political context. ... supplemented by contextualizing information, it [the book] should pack quite a wallop. (glossary) (Memoir. 10-14)

For a description of how this 2014 "Young Readers Edition" differs from the 2013 "I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban," co-written by Christina Lamb for adults, please see "'This Is Malala': PW Talks with Malala Yousafzai | By Sarah J. Robbins | Aug 27, 2014" at http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by... For example, "critical days after the attack are handled much differently than they are in the adult version," and there was "scaling back some of the historical and geopolitical writing and steering away from her parents’ backstories."
