: The inspiring, true story of Malala Yousafzai, a young Pakistani girl who stands up and speaks out for every childâs right to education. Though she and two of her schoolmates were targeted by a Taliban gunman, a life-threatening injury only strengthened her resolve. Malala spoke at the U.N. on her 16th birthday in 2013, nine months after she was shot. Author and journalist Karen Leggett Abouraya, author of Hands Around the Library: Protecting Egyptâs Treasured Books, brings Malalaâs story to life for young readers. Malalaâs story is more than a biography of a brave and outspoken teenager. It is a testament to the power of education to change the world for boys and girls everywhere.
