I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban - Christina Lamb, Malala Yousafzai

Powerful. That's how I would describe this book. 


The story gave us an insight of life in Swat Valley before it was taken over by the Taliban, and how extremist views can gain massive followers in such short time and affected people's lives with fear. 


Malala is a hero - a symbol of bravery and courage of young females of modern times, and also a living proof of how parents support can bring children to the highest places.
