Written in collaboration with critically acclaimed NATIONAL BOOK AWARD finalist Patricia McCormick, Malala tells her story - from her childhood in the Swat Valley to the shooting, her recovery and new life in England. She's a girl who loves cricket, gossips with her best friends, and, on the day of the shooting, nearly overslept and missed an exam. A girl who saw women suddenly banned from public, schools blown up, the Taliban seize control, and her homeland descend into a state of fear and repression. This is the story of her life, and also of her passionate belief in every child's right to education, her determination to make that a reality throughout the world, and her hope to inspire others.

WARNING: This is not the actual book I am Malala. Do not buy this unofficial Summary, Review & Analysis until you first have a copy of this great book. As you read I am Malala, Save Time Summaries is the perfect companion to help you get the most out of the book.We have read I Am Malala and pulled out some of the key points and insights to give you a comprehensive chapter-by-chapter summary, analysis & review to aide your reading. To get it all, you should first order the full book. Packaged together in an engaging and easily digestible format, this concise summary & analysis works best as an unofficial guide or companion to read alongside the book. If people like Malala can come out of Pakistan, all is not yet lost in that benighted country. The result of the clash between her passion in advocating such a noble cause and the forces of darkness embodied in the Taliban was to almost martyr her before her time. She is a child prodigy, and her autobiography rings true. She is objective, clear, and evenhanded in describing a society (of which she is a part) so charged with religious fervor and conflict. Moreover, Malala has the character and the wisdom to push an issue that is greatly upsetting in a deeply patriarchal society: the right of every girl and woman to an education. Why should this be? Because it is profoundly liberating to that portion of the population that happens to be women and therefore threatening to those who have power over them. These oppressors feared education's liberating influence for women and girls, causing them to strike out against an innocent and wholesome girl in the form of Malala.Here's your chapter-by-chapter guide you can use as you read along with Malala Yousafzai's I Am Malala!
