Personal Reading Challenge 2018: Book #18: I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai

Malala Yousafzai is one of the bravest young women I’ve ever learned about and her book, I Am Malala, is an amazing journey through hardship, poverty, war, the cultural suppression of women and life threatening danger – but it is also a testament to a young girl’s conviction and strength, her faith and steadfast belief in the rights of all to be educated no matter their background, gender or means. She has become a leader for educational rights for women in her own country as well as all over the world; her name is synonymous with courage. Her story has a great purpose and her life’s journey is not yet finished – she has much more to do – but one of things I love best about her book is her use of language, her poetry of images and words, her descriptions of the world around her, of her beloved valley, so vivid and tangible, I felt as though I were there beside her and I longed to see it and for her to be able to see it again. Beautifully written, thought provoking and inspirational.
