For sheer inspiration read
I Am Malala — Kirsty Brimelow ―
THE TIMES

Not only powerful, but also very instructive about the recent history of Pakistan and the pressures of everyday life there. One finishes the book full of admiration both for Malala, and for her father, who has clearly inspired her ―
THE SUNDAY TIMES

Malala Yousafzai’s story begins with her parents being commiserated with after producing a baby girl. In their part of northern Pakistan, she says, rifle shots ring out in celebration of a baby boy’s arrival. But there is no such fanfare for females: their destiny is to cook and clean, to be neither seen nor heard… So how did Malala, who barely warranted a mention in her family’s genealogy, become destined for the history books as a powerful symbol for girls’ universal right to an education? Her memoir

SPECTATOR

This memoir brings out her best qualities. You can only admire her courage and determination. Her thirst for education and reform appear genuine. She also has an air of innocence, and there is an indestructible confidence. She speaks with such poise that you forget Malala is 16 — Ziauddin Sardar ―

GRAZIA

The medical team that saved Malala; her own stoicism and resilience; the support of her family, now, again in exile, this time in Birmingham; Malala’s level-headed resolve to continue to champion education and children’s rights – these are all powerful reminders of the best in human nature. Much of the money Malala has been awarded has gone to the Malala fund (www.malalafund.org). “Please join my mission,” she asks. It’s vital that those of us who can, do — Yvonne Roberts ―
OBSERVER

A tale of immense courage and conviction which begins as [Malala] is shot for campaigning for the rights of girls to an education ―
THE INDEPENDENT

Malala’s voice has the purity, but also has the rigidity, of the principled. Whether she is being a competitive teenager and keeping track of who she bet in exams (and by how much) or writing a blog for the BBC that catapulted her on to the international stage – “We were learning how to struggle. And we were learning how powerful we are when we speak” – or talking about Pakistan’s politicians (“useless”), Malala is passionate and intense. Her faith and her duty to the cause of girls’ education is unquestionable, her adoration for her father – her role model and comrade in arms – is moving and her pain at the violence carried out in the name of Islam is palpable — Fatima Bh
