Written by one defiant young women who stood up to the mounting atrocities of terrorist Taliban, this book describes the journey of a simple Pakistani girl from Swat Valley who stood up for a basic right to education that nearly cost her, her life.
In order to teach her a lesson and to shut up every spark of revolution against the Taliban, the terrorist organisation shot Malala right in the head, at point-black range, but she survived the murderous attach.
In simple words and stunning prose, this book takes the reader on the extraordinary journey that Malala has taken from a remote village in Northern Pakistan to the posh halls of United Nations. A symbol of bravery, she has become a global icon for peace and human rights, and is the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, ever in history.
Published by Orion Publishing Group, this is a bestselling memoir of the youth icon who fought all odds to stand by the right. It was even accorded as the non-fiction book of the year in 2014, when it was first published.
