"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.

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, co-written with Christina Lamb, the designation does the book a disservice, as this is no simple redaction. With the capable assistance of co-author McCormick, the account has been effectively rewritten specifically for children. The story is straightforward, related chronologically and covering Yousafzai’s growth in activism, her shooting and her recovery in England. 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. Although readers will come away with a good understanding of Yousafzai’s immediate experiences, the geopolitical forces that shape her culture go largely unmentioned except in a closing timeline that amounts to a dizzying list of regime changes.

Though Yousafzai’s memoir never transcends her story, that story is a powerful and inspiring one; supplemented by contextualizing information, it should pack quite a wallop. (glossary) (Memoir. 10-14)

It is an extraordinary gift to hear the story of a person like Malala in her own words -- not least because she is so very human and so aware of it -- funny, thoughtful, competitive, committed. I hope for our world's sake that she leads us all into a better place. ( )

This is a memoir of Malala Yousafzai that she co-wrote with the help of an American journalist. The writing is straightforward, nothing fancy, but Malala's experience is interesting enough to keep me reading.

She grew up in northwestern Pakistan, which borders Afghanistan. As a result the influence of Taliban is strong in her area as well. Her father is highly educated and forward-thinking; he runs a private school for....I think K-12 children. Due to her father's influence, Malala loves going to school and learning things. She is often the top student of her class. When Taliban tried to, and eventually took control of northwestern Pakistan, Malala's father spoke out to the government and the press against the Taliban's restrictive policy on girls' education. Reporters wanted to interview a teenage girl and have her talk about her feelings of the situation, but they couldn't find a girl willing to be interviewed, because they feared Taliban's retaliation. Malala, at 11 years old, volunteered herself. I was very impressed with that. So brave and determined at only 11! She began to talk to the press more and more about the importance of children's education, until three years later Taliban assassins shot her in her head. This garnered global attention. She miraculously survived, with only a fractured skull and loss of hearing in the left ear. The Pakistani government gave her father a job to work as a diplomat in the U.K., so their family relocated to the U.K. They could not return to Pakistan because there could be more assassination attempts from the Taliban. Malala became renowned internationally for her endeavors and plight, so she received a lot of prizes and donations from around the world. She established the Malala Fund and continues to work toward providing education to all children.

Here's what Malala told her father after she received death threats from the Taliban: "Everybody knows they will die someday. No one can stop death. It doesn't matter if it comes from a Talib or from cancer." Wow! Another quote: "If we believe in something greater than our lives, then our voices will only multiply, even if we are dead."

And this is the conclusion Malala came to (at just 13 years old!), when she pondered how she should defend herself if an assassin comes: "If you hit a Talib with your shoe, there is no difference between him and you. you must not treat others with cruelty. You must fight them with peace and dialogue."

And this is what she said to comfort her family after Taliban's shot to her head had damaged her brain so that the left side of her face is paralyzed: "My face. It doesn't matter. God has given me a new life."

My general feeling after reading this story can be summarized in another Malala quote: "We have much more in common than we have different, and every day we learn something new from one another." ( )

This was the Young Reads version, but it was still super compelling and informational! Wow! I never really knew the story behind Malala besides she was shot for standing up for women's education, so this was really informational!

(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.

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."
