"Wise beyond her years...."―Annie Gowen, Marie Claire
"Riveting.... Co-written with Christina Lamb, a veteran British journalist who has an evident passion for Pakistan and can render its complicated history with pristine clarity, this is a book that should be read not only for its vivid drama but for its urgent message about the untapped power of girls.... It is difficult to imagine a chronicle of a war more moving, apart from perhaps the diary of Anne Frank. With the essential difference that we lost that girl, and by some miracle, we still have this one."―Marie Arana, Washington Post

About the Author
Malala Yousafzai, the educational campaigner from Swat Valley, Pakistan, came to public attention by writing for BBC Urdu about life under the Taliban. 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. She miraculously survived and continues her campaign for education.
In recognition of her courage and advocacy, Malala was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014, becoming the youngest-ever recipient at just seventeen years of age. She was also honored with the National Youth Peace Prize in Pakistan in 2011 and the International Children's Peace Prize in 2013, and she was short-listed for Time magazine's Person of the Year.
Malala continues to champion universal access to education through the Malala Fund, a non-
profit organization investing in community-led programs and supporting education advocates around the world.

around a girl living in Swat valley named Malala. She was a girl who wanted to study but the Taliban restricted on girls education but she denied to remain silent. She had many difficulties through her journey but she didn't give up and fought for her right to study. She became the youngest winner of Noble Peace Prize. She inspired many people and proved that girls can do anything and everything. She also proved that the word I -M-POSSIBLE itself says I - AM- POSSIBLE
MIND TREE SCHOOL, PANJOKHRA
I liked the way the story unveiled from the pen of a teenage girl. Simple but effortless description of the line of events; warm depiction of the beautiful Swat valley and her undaunted struggle for justice bound in some over two hundred pages must be treasured and reviewed again and again to be on our toes regarding gender issues, education or peace. It can surely be a good gift from a father to his daughter also.
